This young man will be something to watch!! I remember seeing him during Lonzo's days and he was always real quiet soaking up everything. His journey also took a lot of discipline and greatness. The fact that he didn't go #1 draft pick will make him go harder. I'm excited to watch him play.

Teens mature at their own pace, each experience is a single growing pain. Lamelo’s is specific to himself, as is everyone’s! and the futures in bloom for him thus far.
Carlos Jr
Carlos Jr Pred mesecem
It definitely helped him grow to be placed in a different environment where he didn't get pampered like NCAA players do. Most young people can barely survive moving out of their parent's home so imagine living in a different country without your parents. That would wake up anyone to the reality life. The NCAA doesn't provide that for players, instead they coddle players.

Imma say that again, Lamelo will be the biggest top 3 bust past 5 years even more, he cannot drive, he is not athletic at all, he can't absorb contact, he don't like contact, bad Basketball IQ, he can't shoot ( I don't care what anyone have to say ) bad shot selection Lamelo is not a true baller, just a BIG NAME, just like all his brothers, that's why the pistons signed his brother for CLOUT, he didn't play a single game, cut him before the season start

Lavar has elite marketing talents, that's for sure. He also had great leadership. This is coming from someone who criticized Lavar for years. If I had ounce of Lavars confidence, I'd be better off in life.

Is no one noticing whats going on in the world? We've sent hundreds of rockets into space since the year before last and we still average 3.23 a day. Do you know what the 4 Horsemen of Armageddon are? They are 4 Action Events. (send rockets. rockets strike rock, rock splits and a split piece sears our planet) "Wormwood" is a asteroid in the book of Revelations and those "rockets" are weapons. Bow= Send it. Sword= Strike it. Scales= Split it. Fire= Sear it. ^4 Action Events^ Do you know what the "mark of the beast" is? Take 3 6's and place them in a circle and you have a VIRUS WARNING SYMBOL. But..its not the "virus"... its the coming VACCINE. It will be given AIRBORNE and it will fall on your hands and foreheads. I could keep on telling you more and share links to my videos and comments below those videos where I explain even better. But each time I post links only about 20 of you see it, before SLtv removes them. So here I am begging anyone who is listening. Armageddon as started and the mark of the beast is almost upon all of us (its not a chip). Please with all that I am click my name and come to my channel and let me show you somethings you've never seen before. Please with all of my heart and soul I'm begging you. (nothing is monetized). ( *READING THE COMMENTS BELOW EACH VIDEO IS VERY IMPORTANT* ) I'm just a 58 year old man and I'm trying my best to warn others. I plead with you HELP ME do that. ~ beware the coming global king. he is the antichrist. he is not the Jesus of the Bible, never fall for that lie. When you feel your LAST words approaching, make them "JESUS SAVE ME" (

Hush Whisper Pred 4 meseci
@Alberts stuff Thank you for your kind comment. You're correct, people have said it many times. All I can do is tell what I know to the best I'm able. I try hard to do that. People ask "how you know that". My answers are often met with replies of either hate or "tin hat" comments. Though "few" believe me and "many" don't, I won't falter. I will continue to warn. From the bottom of my heart I told the truth. If anyone remembers anything I've said. Remember this. Before you die, make your last words "JESUS SAVE ME" and mean it with all your soul.
Alberts stuff
Alberts stuff Pred 4 meseci
@Hush Whisper Sorry, but just sounded a bit like the him, end of the world stuff and the Bible. When you're an atheist it doesn't mean much, I've heard this stuff for 40 years now to no avail. However, I've never experienced a year like 2020 before, so you could (finally) be right 😉

LaMelo Ball a top draft pick ? This only tells me two things .. Either the draft was thin on talent, which it wasn't or Michael Jordan with a history of lousy draft picks selected Ball at number three, far to high instead of the lower rung of the first round where based on his deficiencies he should been drafted.
