Congratulations, Batum!

Nicolas Batum is one of the better stories this season. He's a near shoe-in for the All-Star team after struggling mightily last year with the Portland Trail Blazers. 

The trade to Charlotte did him well, and now it looks like his entire life is about to change. Here's what he posted on Facebook:

Batum is averaging 16.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. He's the number one option in Charlotte's offense and the guy who makes everyone around him noticeably better. 

Congratulations to him and his partner.

C'est avec bonheur que je vous annonce que ma compagne Aurelie et moi même attendons un petit garçon ! Aurelie and I are expecting a lil one ! The greatest news ever !🍼󾆯🏽󾌧
