NBA Teams Ain’t Taking LaMelo Seriously

LaMelo Ball‘s jump back to high school won’t make any difference on his NBA future … ’cause teams still won’t take him seriously — so says Marcin Gortat.
The youngest Ball brother announced Tuesday he’s headed to Sire Prep Academy after stints overseas and in the JBA … clearly with hopes that it will help his NBA draft stock.
But, when we got Gortat out at Villa Alloro … we asked the Clippers center if he thinks it’ll work out for Melo … and Marcin said, “I don’t think so.”
Interesting … considering Melo’s new coach and ex-NBAer Jermaine Jackson told TMZ Sports he thinks after this high school run, Ball can be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 draft.
But Gortat clearly ain’t buyin’ into all that … tellin’ us he ain’t even giving much thought to the Balls’ latest plan.
“I don’t know, man. That truly ain’t my problem.”
There’s more … Marcin also gave us his prediction for the Lakers’ and Clippers’ records this season — and LeBron James surely ain’t gonna like it.
