There’s a buzz back in Charlotte and Hornets legend Muggsy Bogues is relishing watching his old team blossom into one of the most exciting young teams in the NBA.

The Hornets are making a solid playoff case through the first quarter of the season and one big reason why has been the play of reigning Rookie of the Year LaMelo Ball, following in Bogues’ footsteps as a highlight-filled Hornets point guard.

“LaMelo is infectious, the guys love playing with him,” Bogues told Quentin Richardson and Jamal Crawford during the NBA Hooper Vision live broadcast of the Hornets game against the Bucks on NBA League Pass.

“It’s a treat to see a guy come in with that type of humbleness and willingness to want to uplift his teammates and I think him playing overseas last year allowed him to grow to play against those type of professional players and gave him a head start coming in to blend in with these guys and it’s been very noticeable from last year to this year.”
