LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets started the season on a dominant note. After going over 20 points down at one point in the game, Ball led a phenomenal comeback. Ball's performance helped the Hornets win a close game against the Indiana Pacers. The final score of the match was 123-122 in favor of the Hornets.
The youngest Ball brother played a pivotal role in this sensational victory. In just 29 minutes that he spent on the court, he had 31 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2 steals. Still not impressed? Well, the 20-year-old also knocked seven shots from beyond the three-point line.
It was truly a masterpiece from the young Hornets star. The team will hope he can continue this form when the season is at its full pace.
While Ball utterly destroyed his opponents on the court, he was on the receiving end of the trolls off the court. Wondering why? Just look at his outfit after he finished the game.
Looking at the confidence that Ball walked off, it feels like he completely believes that he has dressed fashionably. Well, to his surprise, NBA fans poured in the trolls one after another on Twitter. Here are some of the best tweets about LaMelo's outfit:
LaMelo's fashion sense might be a bit, for lack of a better word, puzzling? But his skills as an NBA player are truly amazing.
He has just entered the second season of his career and is already looking well adjusted to the league. Considering the Charlotte Hornets have struggled to have any success in the league so far, Ball might change that.
The only question remains for how long he can maintain his form. Even during his rookie season, Ball played great, but there were stretches of inconsistency in his game.
If he can get rid of that flaw in his game, the sky is the limit for the young guard. As for his fashion sense, he is not the first NBA player who has been trolled for it. A few weeks back, Russell Westbrook was on the receiving end of many trolls for his dressing sense.
