Highlights From LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball’s First Professional Game

LaMelo Ball became the youngest American basketball player to ever play in a professional game. Alongside him playing for Vytautas, a professional basketball team in Lithuania, was his older brother LiAngelo Ball.


Liangelo, who started the season playing for the UCLA Bruins, decided to drop out of college and seek alternative options following his suspension for shoplifting and a high-end shopping center when his team was in China.

Yesterday, Vytautas took on Zalgiris on their home court and here are some of the highlights from the game:

LaMelo finished with 10 points and nine assists while LiAngelo added 19 points en route to a 90-80 Vytautas victory.

The Ball’s played well as they should have. This game was part of a Big Baller Brand series in Vytautas. The team they were playing did not look very skilled at all, as a matter of fact the majority of them looked very young.

Regardless, this is the kick off to an experiment that many are criticizing the Balls for. However, it is going well for them thus far.
