LaMelo Ball is the face of the Charlotte Hornets and one of the best point guards in the NBA today. So, it might come as a bit of a surprise when a Twitter video showed a press conference in 2021 where Ball stated he does not watch basketball games.
LaMelo Ball says he does not watch basketball games
In the introduction press conferences before the 2021-22 season, LaMelo Ball was asked whether he watches college basketball. This was when Ball admitted he doesn’t watch basketball games.
“I ain’t gonna lie, I don’t be watchin’ the hoop.”
This is a bit of a shock, as you’d expect a professional basketball player to watch all types of basketball games all the time. Most players do, but not LaMelo Ball.
Check out the video below.
Reporter: Did you watch much of the college [basketball] game?
LaMelo: I ain't gonna lie, I don't be watchin' the hoop 😂
