Float like a butterfly sting like a bee…or in this case float like LeBron James sting like Carmelo Anthony?
What do you get when you combine King James’ dominating athleticism with Melo’s stellar jump shot? I’d say a Chino Hills (Calif.) high school basketball player named, LaMelo Ball.
Yes, you read that right – LaMelo. Ball. *Cues creative and corny catchphrases to go along with his name*
Ball (so hard), who’s currently a high school sophomore and youngest brother of UCLA star Lonza Ball, had a beyond amazing game last night against Los Osos High when he scored a whopping 92 points against the team– taking a total of 61 shots with only seven of them being threes!
The prodigy style performance took place just days after Chino Hills ended their 60 –game winning streak against Oak Hill High on Sunday which undoubtedly sparked the teen to go hard in the paint (pun intended) against his competition on Tuesday night.
LaMelo made sports headlines back in December after calling AND making a half-court shot during a weekend tournament.
I think it’s safe to say this kid is every sports junkie’s dream.
