Who will be the top pick of the 2020 NBA Draft is anyone’s guess at this point but LaMelo Ball believes he will be selected before anyone else.

Krysten Peek of Yahoo Sports reports:

So, does Ball believe he should be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft? “Most definitely. I believe in myself and I’ve worked hard to get here,” Ball told Yahoo Sports. “The other guys at the top of the draft, James [Wiseman] and Anthony [Edwards], are very talented too. But just in the way I believe in myself, I think I’m the top pick.”

This season LaMelo is averaging 17 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7 assists for the Illawarra Hawks (currently last place) of Australian NBL.
