It's a great pick for Charlotte. Jordan is only worried about the bottom line, not winning. Lemelo will put butts in seats. He will make the team money.

Michael Jordan, will guide this kid to be an excellent players, since none of his sons followed his footsteps, just as long as lavar ball doesn’t get in Michaels way. La melo is a lucky player if that will happen. I can see him adjusting his game into high level.

In basketball Michael Jordan as in picking players has definitely been awful and nothings going to change with LaMelo Ball pick... will be trash 🗑. But MJ on the court is the GOAT. But as far as picking players for a team is terrible...... Just like Stephan Marbury he was a God overseas playing in China no we can stop on averaging like 40 points a game but in the NBA he was cut.... and now they’re hyping LaMelo the same way and watch what happens all his stats will go down in the NBA they will push him around he is too small he is no Kevin Durant.

Honestly don't think melo is NBA caliber. There, I said it. I agree with Max. Not explosive, broken shot, and liability on defense, for what? Some good court vision. I wouldn't buy it. These kids nowadays are walking into the NBA. Watered down league.I like melo but Lavar Ball is finessin' the NBA.
Ash Russom
Ash Russom 7 dager siden
Also, I can not stand the fact that 'being able to put fans in the seats' is one of the reasons for melo to be drafted. Are we being serious? I love the game of basketball, and for the sake of keeping the integrity of the game, this should not be one of the reasons we draft players. If that's the cause, anyone popular could join the league. Keep the NBA high level, draft talented players. Simple.

Lets all be honest, a HUGE part of the reason melo got drafted was because of Lavar Ball

MJ is the greatest to do it, no doubt. But a horrible owner and his track record as a mentor is horrific as well. All I say is Kwame Brown and the other rookie in Chicago he broke.

Lamelo shot 25% from 3 and 45% from 2 in the NBL. He's only gonna get worse in the NBA. Teams will disrespect him and sag off cause they know he can't shoot so any sort of playmaking he could have done against lesser competition will be neutralized. Dude will be a fringe starter or 6th/7th man at best like his Lonzo.
