Last month, we watched a video of children in Charlotte, North Carolina, looking for Hornets All-Star LaMelo Ball. Instead, they found the GOAT, Michael Jordan, and they went crazy.
Unfortunately, Jordan denied the kids a photo while requesting a picture with the legend. Well, on Thursday, a new video appeared on social media. Ball stumbled across at least one of these same kids while taking a picture himself.
The kid with the camera can be heard. “I was looking for Michael Jordan… I mean I was looking for you and seen Michael.” Ball replied “It was yo ass.”
The owner of the Hornets team has since been ridiculed online for not taking a photograph with the children. Meanwhile, Ball looks like a hero compared to him. LaMelo Ball came into the NBA as a rookie last year, posting just under 16 points, with six rebounds and six assists per game. He continued this year with another more productive season. He averaged more than 20 points a game, with 6.7 rebounds and 7.6 assists. Ball also shot close to 39 percent from behind the arc.
A few years ago, it seemed like everyone in basketball was against the Ball kids being successful. Most of that feeling was due to his father’s outgoing personality and claims. But LaVar Ball disappeared in the background, as he should, and let his sons shine.
