Hopkins is currently on the Arizona Cardinals, and he has also played for the Houston Texans.

He is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. 

As for Ball, he is 24-years-old, and a very solid NBA point guard.

He was the second overall pick out of UCLA in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The first two seasons of his career were spent with Los Angeles, and he was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in the summer of 2019. 

After two seasons with New Orleans, he signed with the Chicago Bulls last summer.

The Bulls were one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference to start the year, but Ball only ended up playing in 35 games.

His season was cut short due to an injury. 

He averaged 13.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.

He's also an excellent defender and averaged 1.8 steals per game.

The Bulls ended up losing in the first-round of the NBA Playoffs to the Milwaukee Bucks.
