LaMelo Ball is one of the flashiest players in the NBA right now, touted as one of the future faces of the competition following two solid seasons with the Charlotte Hornets. In his sophomore campaign, he's still trying to lead his squad to the postseason, which will happen if they get past the play-in tournament next month.
Ball keeps playing at a high level, demonstrating he's the present and future of his franchise. Great as he is on the court, Melo has been involved in some controversies when he's not playing. Besides dating two women at the same time at some point, the player recently starred in an unflattering moment when he threatened to hurt somebody that took a disrespectful pic in front of his car.
One fan spotted Melo's Lamborghini Urus and decided to take a picture with it. This would be normal as many people often take pictures with luxury cars. Well, in this case, the situation was different. This wasn't a fan of Melo and the message they used on the snap made it very clear.
"F*ck Melo," the fan said wrote while showing his butt in front of the player's vehicle.
Of course, this didn't sit well with the 2021 Rookie of the Year, who sent a big message on Twitter, telling that the fan deserved to get beat up, even asking people out there to deal with the troll.
"He needs his ass beat... Somebody handle my light weight out there," Ball tweeted.
It seems like the point guard came into his senses and decided it was a good idea to threaten somebody, let alone ask other people to hurt this man if they saw him. He deleted the tweet, but the internet never forgets, with some fans capturing the moment and sharing it with the world.
Hopefully, this is the end of this situation. Melo knows that being a ballplayer has his pros and cons and he shouldn't lose his mind over this stuff. That fan should know better than that, but trolls have been out of control recently in the league.
