By now you’ve probably seen the video, UCLA-bound high schooler LaMelo Ball calls his shot: points to halfcourt as he walks the ball up, then pulls up and drains the shot.
“That was some confidence right there. The fact that he made it. I wonder if he’s done it before and missed it. It’s the highlight-driven generation, so that right there was pretty unbelievable, though. For him to call his shot like Babe Ruth and knock it down and act like nothing happened. So shoutout to him.”
Ball has done it before, the guy has crazy range, plus knows how to share the ball. Whether he can translate this success to the college level (or beyond) remains to be seen, but Ball certainly has gotten everyone’s attention.
