Charlotte Hornets rookie guard LaMelo Ball is currently on a tear for the franchise and is currently the leading candidate for this season’s NBA Rookie of the Year Award.
Along with being the youngest player in the history of the NBA to compile a Triple Double, Ball is averaging 12.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 6.1 assists in limited minutes. Thus far for the season, Ball is only averaging 25 minutes per game.
During the Hornets’ most recent game, a victory against the Milwaukee Bucks, Ball tallied 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 9 assists alongside of 4 steals. He was also able to convert 8 of his 10 shots taken.
