Lithuanian group revamps video games for Ball bros

Lithuanian group revamps video games for Ball bros

LaMelo Ball and LiAngelo Ball will play in their first game with the Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas on Tuesday in the first match of what has been titled the "Big Baller Brand Challenge Games".

The youngest two sons of Lavar Ball finally made their much anticipated professional debut in the inaugural game of the "Big Baller Brand Challenge". The game was broadcast live on Facebook, which displays the number of viewers real-time for any live feed.

With LaVar Ball seated at midcourt alongside the boys' mother, Tina, LiAngelo Ball finished with 19 points and LaMelo Ball had 10 to help Prienai to a 90-80 win over Zalgiris. If LiAngelo and LaMelo succeed in Lithuania, it's possible they choose to play out the season there.

But he still managed to hold his own. But LaVar Ball's circus-which had well over 100,000 tuning in at one point on Facebook-is just getting started. In comments published Sunday by ESPN, Ball told Goodman that Lakers Coach Luke Walton is "not connecting" with his players, who are "not playing for Luke no more". The company's logo was everywhere, including on the jerseys worn by the referees.

The other NFC game features defending conference champion Atlanta (+700) visiting top-seeded Philadelphia (+1400 ). However, the Steelers are too strong for the Jaguars, and the Patriots seem likely to overwhelm the Titans.

LaMelo's choices with the ball in his hands often left a lot to be desired too. He also misfired on all five 3-pointers he attempted including a pair of ugly 30 footers seconds after he checked into the game early in both halves.

LiAngelo is labeled as barely an National Basketball Association prospect at this point. The 6-foot-5 guard scored 19 points on 8-for-19 shooting from the field, showcasing the ability to strength and skill to overpower younger Zalgiris defenders on the low block.

While LiAngelo and LaMelo received all the attention from the crowd, the announcers and the viewers watching the game, the best National Basketball Association prospect on the floor might have been the Zalgiris point guard.

While LaVar Ball has been spending time in Lithuania with his two younger sons, he has not refrained from blasting the guidance his oldest son has received back at home.
