LaMelo was asked recently his thoughts on his brother’s signing. “It’s a blessing for real,” said LaMelo. Hopefully he can make the whole thing, keep him on the team. That would be a blessing.”
As affable as LaMelo is, he’s not known to divulge much during interviews. However, given LiAngelo’s history, and his path to the NBA, it’s no question this means a great deal to LaMelo.
