There was considerable steam around Ball's name in public circles in the weeks leading up to the draft, but sources say the Wolves have been focused on Edwards for quite some time.

"Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one", LaVar Ball said in 2017, when LaMelo was a high school sophomore and his older brother Lonzo was starring at UCLA.

Seeing that he comes from a family with basketball lineage, Ball has been under the spotlight for most of his life.

But Ball, who was drafted No. 3 overall by Jordan's Hornets, said during his introductory news conference Friday at the Spectrum Center that he "doesn't think it's going to happen".

"It's an unbelievable feeling", Hardaway said, "Because I know what he's gone through his entire life. I mean it is my pops and my boss.so I'm on both sides now".

Of course, it's not hard to guess what widely known outcome Ball is alluding to. Ball averaged 2.2 points while playing at Washington State while Jordan was a 14-time NBA All-Star and 10-time scoring champion. In the other is, well, LaVar Ball. Ball went third to Charlotte.
