With recent news hitting social media that Bronny James and Zaire Wade were teaming up at Sierra Canyon High School, it got us wondering if we could see other high profile Guards team up in the next few days.
Insert RJ Hampton, a 2020 Projected Lottery Pick in the NBA Draft with FULL eligibility has decided to forgo college and jump straight to the Pros. More specifically the NBL; an Australian basketball league.
It didn’t take long for fans and even RJ Hampton himself to start speculating on if he’d see Lamelo Ball overseas. I was curious if Lamelo was planning on playing against RJ but it is more in the Ball Families Nature to stack the deck and win then go to a team without talent.
This makes Lamelo’s next decision an easy one as he will likely be joining the Sky City Breakers and teaming up with RJ Hampton overseas. Not only does it clearly seem like an invitation by RJ and an acceptance on atleast Lamelo’s behalf we should get too see these High Profile Guards face off against Grown Men In The NBL. With Recent news of Lamelo’s draft Stock Rising this is the perfect storm for Lamelo to ride into the NBL. Now instead of media backlash tearing down the decision and the competition, they will have no choice but to judge it at the same basis as future Lottery Pick RJ Hampton.
This will be the next chapter in the Movie that is Lamelo Ball’s Pre NBA Career. Will Lamelo and RJ Hampton set the NBL on fire and win a League championship?
