1. LaMelo Ball’s Shot Selection
LaMelo Ball is not scared of any shot. At 15 years old, he pointed to the half-court line and shot the ball from half-court to open up the game.
Spoiler alert: the shot went in.
Present day, LaMelo still tends to settle for poor shots more often than he should. There are times where he will settle for a 34-foot three-point shot with plenty of time left on the shot clock. Although LaMelo may be developing into one of the off-ball shooters in the NBA, he needs to do a better job picking and choosing when to pull the trigger from 30+ feet.
Additionally, Ball needs to do a better job of deciding when to take a floater or truly get to the rim. His touch on floaters is phenomenal; however, settling for floaters becomes predictable, and the defense won’t fear a strong take to the rim, which leads to the next habit.
