It’s time, folks! LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball have hit the court in Lithuania for Vytautas and we’ve got some of the first clips right here. Very shortly we will get to see whether the completely overblown welcome the Ball brothers received when they arrived in the country was worth it. (I am betting that it won’t. Just a hunch.)
Although, as we saw back in December, not everyone in Lithuania is completely on board the Ball train. Not to mention the fact the the Ball brothers’ new coach in Lithuania sounds like a bit of a maniac. If nothing else, this whole things could be this biggest trainwreck since the Mayweather-McGregor World Tour. Especially if it turns out to be the disaster that players who have played in Lithuania in the past expect it to be. So there’s that.
Thankfully for us, LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball’s first game, BC Vytautas versus BC Žalgiris, will be streamed online by Ball Is Life beginning at 1:30 PM ET today.
We’ll be updating this post as more clips are released. What fun!
