The Ball Boys Have Left Lithuania

By HHL JT

Lavar Ball's Lithuanian experiment has failed.

The basketball dad pulled his sons LaMelo and LiAngelo off their Lithuanian team BC Vytautas Prienai today after a dispute with coach Virginijus Seskus regarding LeMelo's playing time.

Ball had taken his boys to the Eastern European nation late last year after he pulled LeMelo from his high school team and took LiAngelo off of the UCLA Bruins. 

LiAngelo, 19, averaged 12.6 points on 42.5 percent shooting and 2.9 rebounds in 21.7 minutes per game coming off of the bench.

LaMelo, 16, averaged 6.5 points on 26.8 percent shooting in 12.8 minutes and only appeared in eight games.

LiAngelo isn't considered an NBA prospect, despite LaVar's talk of the draft combine. Although the Lakers, who employ the third Ball boy Lonzo, may give LiAngelo a courtesy look as a free agent.
