LaMelo Ball leaves Australia, supposedly without telling his team




 

LaMelo Ball suffered as season-ending foot injury while playing Australia last month.

Now, he's returning to the United States - and leaving behind some hurt feelings.

Timothy Fernandez of ABC News:

Ball was in Australia because the NBA still hasn't lowered its age minimum. So, that's where could go to earn money and improve his draft stock.

Mission accomplished.

Did Ball handle his departure appropriately tactfully and respectfully? Maybe not.

Do I completely trust messaging from a spurned team? Nope.

As long as LaVar Ball remains in the picture, there will be concern about controversy surrounding LaMelo. Teams should look into how LaMelo handles this situation. Perhaps, his exit from Australia shows something about his dependability.

But LaMelo's time in Australia absolutely showed his talent. That will get him picked high in the 2020 NBA draft.
