LaMelo Ball had a gem of a line vs. the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 14 points (6-of-14 FGs) with 11 assists, six rebounds, three steals, one block, two triples and five turnovers in 26 minutes.
Just start him already. Coach James Borrego is probably going to be asked about it every day and rightfully so, as LaMelo has the look of a future superstar. "I feel comfortable with [LaMelo's role] right now. We'll obviously look different with him as a starter someday," Borrego said. "When we get to that point, we'll adjust, but for right now, this is what works for us, and I believe it's what's best for LaMelo as well and our team." LaMelo is flirting with top-60 numbers in 9-cat in just 25 minutes per game is only scratching the surface. He's going to be the total package and has turned the Hornets into must-see TV.
