LaMelo Ball 2021:?Net Worth, Salary, and Endorsements

USA Today via Reuters

LaMelo Ball is a 6'6" point guard who plays for the Charlotte Hornets. They drafted him with their third pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

LaMelo can contribute on either side of the floor. Ball is a gifted ball-handler and almost ambidextrous in his passing ability. He is easily one of the best passers to enter the NBA in a while. LaMelo is also a great rebounder and a versatile defender.

He is a scoring threat from anywhere on the floor, including the deep three-point range. However, his efficiency as a scorer has suffered due to his poor and immature shot selection.

LaMelo Ball Overseas Stats

LaMelo Ball played one season for the Illawarra Hawks in the National Basketball League in Australia. He put up strong numbers, but had very inconsistent shooting splits.


LaMelo Ball NBA Stats

In his debut season in the NBA, Ball lived up to the high expectations. He played his role as both facilitator and scorer for the Hornets, averaging 15.7 points, 6.1 assists and 5.9 rebounds per game in the 2020-21 season.

LaMelo Ball Charlotte Hornets

After being drafted with the third overall pick, LaMelo has instantly become a star at Charlotte. He was a weapon off the bench for coach James Borrego, before injuries to starters allowed him to enter the starting lineup. Becoming a starter further elevated his performances, and despite spending some time on the sidelines due to injury, he made a successful return to claim the Rookie of the Year award for the 2020-21 season. He has not only become the focal point of their offense but also the floor general. And as he develops his game, his role as a primary scoring option will also increase.
