There are few hoopers that have to deal with the spotlight and scrutiny at a very young age. Few were younger than LaMelo Ball, the youngest of the Ball brothers. He came to mainstream media’s attention while playing for Chino Hills in High School with his elder brothers. LaMelo announced himself to the world by scoring 92 points as a 15-year-old sophomore for Chino Hills. From that point onwards, his career trajectory has only gone up. In an interview with HoopsHype, a former No.1 Draft pick and 2x NBA All-Star had a very interesting take on LaMelo’s career and his ceiling as an NBA Star.

In a recent interview with Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, former 2x All-Star Baron Davis said this about LaMelo’s ceiling: “He has no ceiling. We don’t know what his ceiling is. He has an intangible that only the greats are given, he has the personality, vision, game, heart, and he’s clutch. He’s highly intelligent, he has an incredible emotional IQ. He’s da*n near 6-foot-9 now. I stood next to him. You think about someone who’s basketball is art. The basketball is like a musical instrument to this kid”.
