That being said, though, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been any low moments. In a “Who’s Interviewing Who” video with Uninterrupted on Friday, Ball discussed with NBA legend Robert Horry and Pelicans teammate Jaxson Hayes the lowest point of his career. “My lowest moment in basketball came after my freshman year in high school. My pops never let me play AAU or travel ball or nothing like that so I was just local kid nobody really knew about. But I got an invitation to the USA camp to make the team and I ended up getting cut and that kind of shaped my whole high school career from that because I was like ‘There’s no way I’m not one of the best 15 players in my class.’ I went from not even being ranked to I think I made it to No. 2 by the time I was a senior. It just gave me motivation just to chase all the guys in front of me thatpeople thought were better than me.”
Corey Brewer: Being around Zion Williamson helped, too. It’s hard to not be excited when you’re around someone like him. You can’t truly appreciate him unless you’re around him every day. He’s just incredible. As for the rest of the guys, B.I. is a budding All-Star, Lonzo just had his best season and Josh is getting better every single day. Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Kira Lewis Jr. and Jaxson Hayes are going to have long, productive futures in this league. With all of these guys, I’m so happy to be able to play a small part in their success.
