An Open Letter to LaMelo Ball...

You are here



Character does not show up on a stat sheet from any game, it is something that is or is not present at all times.  It was clear from the day you arrived at SPIRE that your character matched your basketball skills.  That is not an easy thing to do when so much is expected on the court.  SPIRE is a better place for having you join our family, not only for what you brought to the team on the court, but more importantly, because of the way you carried yourself off the court.  It is clear that regardless of what path you take going forward, you will be successful, because of who you are, and the high standards to which you hold yourself.  Thanks for a great season, both on and off the court.
