So far, LaMelo Ball has been ballin’ out in his first year in the league. We’ve seen the highlights: the perfect dimes, the fancy passes, the tough finishes, and the 3-pointers. Safe to say that the hype surrounding him was real. He is really a good basketball player who will only get better.
However, De’Aaron Fox reminded us that he, too, is also one of the fastest-rising stars in this league. The fifth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Kings guard was initially known as one hell of a fast guard who blew by his opponents with ease.
Now, four years in, he’s still a speedy and an athletic guard. But he has also accumulated tons of basketball knowledge that he’s been in combination with his talents. He still isn’t considered one of the elites, but he’s pretty darn close as he continues to perform for the Kings.
