    87. Yankey

      Yeah he is right we all know lamar would beat mj if they ever had a 1v1

    92. Jules Bergman

      I love how cookout is the first thing he talked about😂😂

    93. ceerw buty

      I swear, a reporter could've said, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you." and LaMelo would respond, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you."

    94. Chris Davis

      I swear, a reporter could've said, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you." and LaMelo would respond, "I'm sorry, I didn't hear you."

    95. Fuegoo TV

      He always talks about cookout and the secret sauce 😂

    96. Spider Man

      I got a feeling he’s going to have a solid start and hornets is a good team to start in.

      1. Spider Man

        @ceerw buty even if he does, it’s all part of the process. A rookie won’t be making buckets easily once in the NBA, no doubt there. If he does bust, then he better double his drive

      2. ceerw buty

        He's going to bust so hard

    97. Nefarious Duo

      Interviewees be conducting interviews beside train tracks while wearing masks smh

    99. General Lord-Richard

      The guy will make HISTORY. I just pray for him to be fit because sports is very competitive. So many out here tryna prove they better than him. But I believe his focused and has a father present in his life to get him in track. But above all his talented & hardworking. Now tell me; Who gon stop 🛑 him huh!!!! 🤨

    100. General Lord-Richard

      The reporters aren’t audible very bad for dishing out interview questions
