LaMelo Ball has seemingly spent half his life in front of the TV cameras. He’s prepared to do it again as he heads for the NBA. The 18-year old Ball’s representatives are shopping around an HBO “24/7”-like documentary series about his road to the 2020 NBA Draft, sources tell Front Office Sports. The 6’7,” 190-pound point guard is expected to be one of the top picks on June 25 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
“LaMelo is as hot as anybody coming into the (NBA) Draft this year. He could generate as many eyeballs as (No. 1 overall pick) Zion Williamson did last year,” said one source. The price for the documentary is said to be in the $2 million range, said sources. That could scare off some suitors. “They’re shopping it around – but the price is very, very expensive. Unless it comes down, we’ll pass,” he said.
