LaMelo Ball believes that the 2023-24 Charlotte Hornets should have solid chemistry thanks to being together for multiple seasons.

(via Roderick Boone/The Charlotte Observer):

“We just want to go out there and learn and figure ourselves out,” Ball said, “see how we are going to play and get a game plan and just use it as a learning experience.” 

In turn, perhaps it can spur the Hornets to break the NBA’s longest current playoff drought, which stands at eight seasons and counting. 

There are bigger expectations surrounding them and Ball can sense it.

“We’ve had years together now and people know each other,” Ball said. “Everybody knows moving forward what we are trying to do. I feel like everybody is just a little more locked in.”
