LaMelo Ball and Lonzo Ball make up one of the best sibling duos in the NBA. Both are starting point guards for their respective franchises, the Charlotte Hornets and the Chicago Bulls. Both have been lauded for their stellar passing skills and playing basketball the right way.
There's no doubt that the two had a lot of critics going into the league. But it turns out that LaVar Ball was right about the two being stellar NBA players, and it's obvious that the two are both valuable to their teams. In fact, there are some who believe that both LaMelo and Lonzo have All-Star potential.
Bulls star Nikola Vucevic has recently commented on the two facing off against one another in the November 29th matchup between the Hornets and the Bulls, claiming that he hopes that his sons get the same opportunity to do that in the future.
Nikola Vucevic on watching Lonzo and LaMelo Ball match up tonight: "I hope one day my sons get to do that."
There is no question that the majority of parents would be thrilled to watch their kids face off against one another in an NBA game, and Nikola Vucevic isn't an exception. It is extremely difficult to make it to the league and having not one but two kids make it would make anyone proud.
The Chicago Bulls look like one of the best teams in the NBA this year, and Lonzo Ball's defensive acumen and playmaking have played a key role in that happening. Meanwhile, the Hornets definitely have looked like a playoff team thus far under LaMelo Ball's leadership, who has been having an All-Star caliber season.
We'll see how things end up shaking out for the Ball brothers, but they have definitely delivered on becoming good NBA players. The future is bright for both, and it'll be amazing to watch them now and in the coming years.
