Ball brothers leave Vytautas due to injuries

Ball brothers leave Vytautas due to injuries

The great Lithuania experiment is over. because LaVar Ball is pulling his 2 sons off BC Vytautas after just 3 months.

Lithuania is about to say goodbye to the traveling road show that is the Ball family. Thus it was no surprise, after Ball took his two younger sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, to play professionally for a small club in Lithuania, that he set about disagreeing with that team's coach. Additionally, LaVar was also upset with LaMelo's minutes, according to Urbonas.

LiAngelo averaged 12.6 points while playing about 22 minutes per game and LaMelo posted just 6.5 points per contest in 12 minutes of action while shooting 26.8 percent from the field. "It's sad they didn't understand what we gave them". Something tells us LaVar will let us know soon enough.


LiAngelo, who became a leading scorer in the LKL, had missed time recently due to an ankle injury, but LaMelo had not seen much playing time in top-league LKL action.

"We're not going to waste our time no more", LaVar Ball is reported to have said. LiAngelo is already declared for the 2018 National Basketball Association draft, so only time will tell if he gets drafted or not. Ball said that he had a positive experience in Lithuania, with one, all-too-common exception: "I just didn't get along with the coach".
