SJ - December 15, 2020

LaMelo Ball has played in just two NBA preseason games and he's already getting plenty of attention for his flashy play.  The No. 3 overall pick turned heads in his first game with his passing.

On Monday, in just his second preseason game in a Hornets jersey, Melo was already staring down his opponent's bench.  He drained a three right in front of the bench before showing off his cocky side.

There have been some who are already calling Charlotte the "Showtime Hornets" due to Melo's style of play.  There's just one problem with calling them the Showtime Hornets, they're not winning.

That's going to be the real story.  Melo's flashy play combined with Gordon Hayward dropping 30 points a game is going to result in a ton of Ls.  But go ahead and staredown the bench in a preseason game.
