The Hornets’ LaMelo Ball had a very good impact in the NBA. Ball is set to become Rookie of the Year and he was Leon Rose’s first target in the Knicks Draft. In the end, the Hornets chose LaMelo Ball as their third draft pick and tonight the Knicks find him as an opponent.

LaMelo Ball could really be an added value for New York and former Knick Jermaine Jackson knows it very well:

“That would’ve been a phenomenal place,” Jackson told The Post from Charlotte Monday. “That was one of the places we all wanted to go. And I played there. I know the owner (James Dolan). I know the people there. It’s a phenomenal place. When you win, it’s an incredible place, New York. You always want to play for the Knicks. The last two years they haven’t had it (lottery luck).”
