For all of the physical gifts LaMelo Ball has on the basketball court, his physical stature has never been one considered a positive. Dating back to his time playing alongside brothers Lonzo and LiAngelo, LaMelo has always been visibly the youngest and smallest of the group.

As he has matured, LaMelo has begun to fill out his frame. Still, it’s been a focus of concern from scouts while also being an area Ball himself has looked to improve on.

In the latest episode of “Ball in the Family,” LaMelo and LaVar are shown in the Ball Family Estate “weight room” with both acknowledging the need for LaMelo to add bulk and muscle to his frame.

The most noticeable takeaway from the clip is that LaMelo reportedly did add between 10 and 15 pounds of muscle between the end of his season at SPIRE Institute and the beginning of the Drew League. Ball would show out in the Drew League, leading No Shnaks to one of the best seasons this summer.

Like his oldest brother, LaMelo has shown a desire and willingness to improve in the off-season. Hitting the weight room was the biggest off-court thing LaMelo needed to work on and it’s a big positive to see him working on that. That type of self-motivation is what could lead to a big year in the NBL this season.
