“What Advice is he going to give him?” LaVar Ball thinks LaMelo Ball has nothing to learn from Michael Jordan

Over the last few months, the Charlotte Hornets’ LaMelo Ball has shown tremendous growth. The 19-year-old has been handed the keys to the franchise and so far he has living up to the expectations.

Moreover, when Ball was drafted by the Hornets, many believed that NBA legend Michael Jordan would take him under his wing. Although that was the consensus belief around the league, LaVar Ball (LaMelo’s father) seems to disagree.

In a recent interview, LaVar was asked if there is something that MJ could teach his son. To this question LaVar replied:

Never! Why? What advice is he going to give him?”

While LaMelo might be a great player, Jordan is regarded as the GOAT of basketball. So declaring that there is nothing that Ball can learn from Jordan is simply arrogant. But again, LaVar has always been known for his crazy takes when it comes to his sons.

Can LaMelo Ball help the Charlotte Hornets end their championship drought?

When Mike bought the team more than a decade ago, many expected him to change the franchise’s fortune. However, as good as of a player MJ was, he is yet to prove his worth as a team owner.

With LaMelo Ball on the roster, the Hornets are finally in a position to contend, at least for a playoff berth. Currently, they are the seventh seed in the East with a record of 20-20. If the team can continue this form, they are in a position to be in the playoffs for the first time in five years!

But for that to happen, other players around LaMelo need to elevate their game as well. If they can achieve that, fans might finally enjoy their team contends for an NBA Championship in the future.

What are your thoughts on the expectations from LaMelo and the Hornets? Let us know your views in the comments section below.
