LaMelo Ball has impressed in the early stages of his NBA career, and the Charlotte Hornets rookie went off Saturday.
In his team’s 115-105 win over the Atlanta Hawks, Ball lit up the stat sheet, tallying 22 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.
That made him the youngest player to record a triple-double in NBA history at 19 years old. He broke the record previously held by Markelle Fultz, who at the time was with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Before Fultz, Ball’s older brother, Lonzo, held the record for youngest triple-double at 20 years, 15 days.
LaMelo Ball was the third overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
