  • LaMelo Ball of the Illawarra Hawks

Not only is LaMelo Ball about to be one of the first names called at this year's NBA Draft, but he's also now the proud owner of an Australian basketball team.

The 18-year-old and his manager, Jermaine Jackson, have reportedly purchased the NBL's Illwara Hawks, which is the team Ball played for this past season.

As Jackson explains, they made the decision after being told that the Hawks had some financial issues. Ball wants to see the team thrive and plans to implement the best employees possible to create a program that makes the fans in the city proud. "He loves that community".

Vatican City is protecting the Pope, but keeping employees at work
The Vatican announced April 2 that the pope approved a proposal to hold the collection in churches worldwide on September 13. Other offices, like the Propaganda Fide, require their employees to come in twice a week for the same reason.

"They opened their arms to him", Jackson said. They made us feel like we are at home.

"When high school kids hear LaMelo owns the team, they will want to come", Jackson said. "We're going to put the organization on steroids, building it into a program that guys want to play for". When you already own a team at such a young age, it's proof that you have an entrepreneurial spirit and it will be interesting to see what he does with his newfound purchase. Not only has Ball proven that going to Australia could be a beneficial path for other young players around the world hoping to get to the National Basketball Association, but if Ball and the team around him can build the Hawks into something even bigger it could open up a lot of doors regarding high school players and the NCAA. Ball previously donated a month of his NBL salary to the victims of the Australian bushfire. "We'll take a tour with his family all over Australia, doing basketball camps and connecting with the youth". People have a perception of his father, but he has a heart of gold and it trickles down to his kids. He started his own sneaker company, Big Baller Brand. "They'll know they will be taken care of".
