Lonzo, LaMelo Ball Make NBA Draft History After Younger Brother Selected At No. 3

There's a first time for everything

by

The Ball brothers made some history Wednesday night.

LaMelo Ball was drafted No. 3 overall by the Charlotte Hornets during the 2020 NBA Draft. And even though he thought he was “born” to go No. 1., the third pick still put him in a class of his own.

As you probably remember, Lonzo Ball was drafted with the second overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017.

And according to ESPN Stats & Info, two brothers being drafted in the top-five of the NBA Draft.

Lonzo, of course, now is a member of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Now, we just wait for the release of the 2020-21 NBA schedule to see when the two brothers will meet on the court.
