LaMelo Ball is one of one.
Once he was selected with the No. 3 pick in the 2020 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets, things were bound to change in the Queen City.
Ball’s teammate Miles Bridges recently appeared on fellow Michigan State Spartan Draymond Green’s podcast, ‘The Draymond Green Podcast’, and spoke about the impact that LaMelo has brought to the Hornets.
“As soon as he got here, the culture changed,” Bridges said. “He’s always had a lot of fans since he was like 13 or 14 so he’s always had that swag to him and he brought that to us.”
Green compared how Ball’s swag has impacted the Hornets to how Steph Curry’s ‘looseness’ has rubbed off on the Warriors and affected how they play the game, to which Bridges agreed.
“That’s how we’ve been playing. Our practices have been different. Our energy within the crowd during the game is different,” Bridges said. “You can tell whenever he steps on the floor, they just love him and he feeds off that.”
