Should the Knicks draft Lamelo Ball?

This year has been quite disappointing for the Knicks and they have earned a spot in the draft lottery and if they were to land the first overall pick, should they draft Lamelo Ball? Lamelo has a higher ceiling compared to his brother (Lonzo Ball) but can he play at the NBA level.


Lamelo has the dribbles of a point guard standing at 6'8, he can create easy layups, he can shoot mostly from everywhere, he has phenomenal court vision, and he can be the star of the team. He was the NBL rookie of the year which is pretty much great considering he is only eighteen years old. Lamelo would address the point guard situation the Knicks have with Dennis Smith being inconsistent and hurt, Elfrid Payton not being at times the good, and Frank Ntilinka is not a starting caliber player.


At times teammates of Lamelo have not been able to get along with him because he has been known to ball hog on whatever team he is on and he does not make the best shooting decisions. His shot form has been described as "weird" like his brothers shot form which we have saw that not having a good shot form can lead to concerns to teams and scouts.
