LaMelo Ball wants to be ‘best to ever play the game’

LaMelo Ball

LaMelo Ball will be a top pick in the NBA Draft, but he has loftier goals than going No. 1 or landing with a preferred team.

Ball wants to be known as the best ever when all is said and done.

“15 years from now I want to be the best to ever play the game,” Ball told Christopher Riley of GQ Australia.

It’s a lofty and ambitious goal, but why not? It certainly seems he inherited some of his family’s famous confidence, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

As for where he plays, Ball said it would be neat to play with his brother Lonzo, but he wasn’t picky about who actually drafts him.

“It’s the NBA so I will play for any team,” LaMelo said. “To play with Lonzo would be real cool. We talked about that growing up so it’ll be a dream come true.”

There’s some chatter that the Ball family has a destination in mind for him, but he doesn’t seem to care. Whoever does land him appears to be getting a very driven and ambitious athlete.
