LaMelo Ball is showing up to Summer League games to support the newest Charlotte Hornets Ball brother, LiAngelo Ball as tries to make the roster.
The Hornets signed LiAngelo as a part of their Summer League team, and with LaMelo Ball already on the team, the second oldest Ball brother has some support.
LiAngelo had a great Summer League debut, hitting threes and making highlight plays that had the crowed hyped, including LaMelo Ball.
LiAngelo’s dad, the famous Lavar Ball, also showed up to egg him on. Given all the publicity LaMelo got last year, LiAngelo is gaining all the attention during the NBA Summer League.

LaMelo Ball Showed Up In A Private Jet To Support LiAngelo Ball
LaMelo Ball is a Puma brand athlete, and being associated with Puma seems to have brought him some major perks already. For example, his ride to LiAngelo’s game in Las Vegas was a private jet.

That’s some serious luxury if you’ve ever seen it. LaMelo is really pulling out all the stops here. After being drafted number two overall to the Charlotte Hornets last year, LaMelo is hoping to improve upon a strong rookie campaign which saw him win Rookie of the Year.
He averaged 15.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game while being part of a Hornets team that advanced to the NBA play-in tournmanent. The Hornets will look to continue their rebuild and finally make the playoffs in LaMelo’s second year.
Who knows, LaMelo may even be joined by his brother LiAngelo this time around as he seems to have everyone’s attention during the Las Vegas Summer League.
