Comparison

Michael Carter-Williams Orlando Magic

Very good size and length for point guard position. Respectable athlete for point guard given size. Long range on jumper; not extremely efficient shooter but would improve with better shot selection. Can hit threes in bunches due to stroke and quick release. Legitimate handle and playmaking ability off bounce. Flashy passer whose vision is undeniable. Showman who often attempts the most exciting play possible. Will need to get stronger and improve decision making and defense in order to take advantage of his significant talent. Turnover prone. Has the talent to play in the NBA; question will be can he turn the corner from showman to competitor? Likely not on college path due to professional experience and endorsements.

Athletic Background

LaMelo Ball is the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball and former UCLA forward LiAngelo Ball.
