1. G LaMelo Ball — Australia
NBA Comparison: Shaun Livingston pre-injury
Forget the LaVar Ball/Big Baller Brand circus. LaMelo Ball is an exceptional talent — and one which was not manufactured via a reality show or a faulty clothing line. At 6-foot-8, Ball has rare passing ability. He can see over a defense, and plays the game with an exceptionally high basketball I.Q. Like his brother Lonzo, Ball also plays the game with nice pace. His perimeter shot is a bit wonky, and he isn’t yet filled out physically. However, there’s no denying how good LaMelo is.
