NBA Twitter reacts to Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball’s potentially season-ending wrist injury

LaMelo Ball injury NBA Twitter Hornets

NBA fans collectively held their breath when news broke that Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball might be out for the season after fracturing his wrist. Fans flocked to Twitter to share their heartbreak through a combination of memes and witty banter.

A fan claimed that he has no clue how to survive without seeing LaMelo Ball playing balling out. In just his rookie season, Ball has quickly amassed a following among NBA fans. His passing ability and vision have thrilled basketball diehards across the globe.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard D’Angelo Russell sent out a rather insensitive tweet after news about Ball broke. As expected, he got lashed by a ton of fans. Some pointed out how Russell should exercise some class. Others went straight to the point by telling Rusell that Ball is already a better basketball player than him.

Several fans, of course, inserted LaVar Ball — LaMelo’s gregarious father — into the picture. Though Ball’s chances of winning Rookie of the Year have dwindled, fans believe that LaVar will do anything in his power to make sure his son takes the plum.

A fan posted an imagined scenario of how LaVar would force his son to play to win top rookie honors. While it’s a made-up scheme, there’s still that possibility that LaVar would come up with ways to gets his son back on the court, for Melo’s own sake too.

Another fan expressed his disappointment at the recent turn of events not just involving Ball, but LeBron James as well. Here’s to hoping that no one gets seriously hurt again.
