VIDEO: LaMelo Ball Youngest Player in NBA History to Record Triple Double

The Charlotte Hornets were very pleased to select LaMelo Ball as the 3rd overall pick in the NBA Draft, and for good reason. After flirting with a triple double last night against his brother Lonzo and the Pelicans (he was 1 assist shy), he managed to do it tonight against the Atlanta Hawks - making NBA history as the youngest player to accomplish the feat. 

Ball is now on an 8-game run of 12+ points/5+ assists, and looks to be the real deal. He has been stroking it from deep and dishing out dimes like a 10-year veteran - get the Rookie of the Year chatter started.
