Rockets’ Jalen Green goes full LaMelo Ball with splashy new purchase

Jalen Green Rockets LaMelo Ball Ja Morant

It’s only been a few weeks since the NBA Draft and Jalen Green has already been making his presence felt. The Houston Rockets’ second-overall pick was a force at NBA Summer League, both for his play and his off-court style.

Jalen Green just added some more gasoline to fire up his drip game. The Rockets youngin’ got himself some iced out grills and flexed them seemingly without a care in the world.

The Rockets rookie even caught the attention of Memphis Grizzlies star guard Ja Morant, who got the chills just from watching the clip.

Jalen Green might just be following in the footsteps of another Top 3 pick in LaMelo Ball. The Charlotte Hornets guard pulled the exact same stunt before his first NBA game, then eventually took home the Rookie of the Year plum. Perhaps this is Jalen Green’s first step in replicating Ball’s success with the Rockets?

If NBA Summer League was any indication, Jalen Green looks to be every bit the explosive scorer that he was advertised to be. Green was among 13 players in Las Vegas who averaged 20 points per game, but he needed the least amount of shots per game to get there thanks to his stellar efficiency.

The Houston Rockets are hoping they have a gem in Jalen Green, and not just the ones shining from his teeth.
