Charlotte Hornets star LaMelo Ball was without question the best rookie in the league in 2021.
His strong play earned the praise of Hornets owner Michael Jordan and Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers, as well as that of star players like LeBron James of the LA Lakers and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
Besides one weird incident, a strange physical altercation with a teammate, Ball’s rookie NBA campaign went off without a hitch.
Sadly, Ball’s season ended early with a fractured bone in his right wrist. Since then, he has been making headlines for his off-the-court proclivities.

This week, one adult entertainment star decided to answer the speculation regarding her and Ball once and for all. She did it by posting a photo of herself in a Hornets jersey.
Twitter had something of a field day:

This latest development should lock Rookie of the Year up for Ball. It would appear a lot of his success with the fairer sex stems from his one special trick for picking up models, which is an impressive skill.
Prior to going down with his injury Ball was averaging 15.9 points and 6.1 assists per game. Hopefully all his off-the-court activities don’t get in the way of his recovery time, because the NBA is a lot more fun when he’s active.
