Ball Brothers Begin Play in Lithuania
The Ball family has been a media sensation in the sports world for several years. At the center of the family is LaVar Ball, a man known to be outspoken and have extreme confidence in his three sons: basketball stars Lonzo, LiAngelo, and LaMelo.
Lonzo is now the starting point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. He averages 10 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists and had been recognized as one of the top rookies in the league this year.
The family earned national recognition in November 2017 when LiAngelo, in China with his UCLA team, was arrested along with two teammates for shoplifting and then suspended from the college team. President Trump was aided in the release of the three college players from China.
The brothers made headlines again in January 2018, when LiAngelo and LeMelo began playing for the Lithuanian team, Vytautas. Recently, the brothers combined for 77 points towards a team win.
