The only thing worse than our current sports atmosphere around here, would be our current sports atmosphere ….. with old man Ball involved.

One thing I'll credit LaMelo for is that he's really gone out of his way to distance himself from his dad.

Pops is a non-issue for me. Makes for interesting news at least.

Really torn on Ball though. On one hand there is SO much obvious potential there. But a #1 overall? That gives me pause. I worry that he may think because he's a #1 he gets an attitude that the team should revolve around him. And he's really not that kind of player. He should strive to be an premiere all-around defender/facilitator/scorer/team player. Not a one dimensional me first player.

If he decides the first path that's great. If he decides the second one, that's trouble.

Best scenario? is there any chance of a trade down and still get him at like #3? I don't know enough about who the suitors would be and who they'd want ahead of Ball. But if Rosas could pull that off, get Ball at #3 and add additional assets besides, I'd be doing a happy dance.

One thing about Ball is that he's never had good coaching. Ever.

His dad coached him in AAU...Hell, his dad had him playing on his U17 with Lonzo when he was like 12.

And he was on a bad team in Australia where he was, by far, the best player and the coach basically had him do whatever he wanted.

He's going to need A LOT of very good coaching. I'm not sure we have that...

Reports are out that the Hornets want Wiseman, but so do the Warriors.
https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2020/10/hornets-reportedly-willing-to-trade-up-for-james-wiseman.html#:~:text=The%20Hornets%20are%20targeting%20former,Bonnell%20of%20The%20Charlotte%20Observer.&text=Charlotte%20has%20an%20obvious%20need,under%20contract%20for%202020%2F21.
These seem to have some legit sources behind them. If true a bidding war could ensue between the two that would greatly benefit the Wolves.Sorry about the ridiculously long link.
