Something tells us the Ball family isn’t going to go back to Lithuania anytime soon.
Both LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball spent a part of a season with Lithuania’s BC Prienu Vytautas this past season. However, things didn’t exactly go well. Their father LaVar said they left simply because “I just didn’t get along with the coach.” Not because LiAngelo or LaMelo didn’t get along with the coach, but because their father didn’t.
In 14 games (six starts), LiAngelo put up 12.6 points per game while shooting 42.5% from the field. His younger brother put up just 6.5 points per game on 26.8% shooting from the field over an eight-game stretch.
However, coach Virginijus Šeškus as well as Prienu Vytautas are fighting back. And they are not mincing words in their scathing attack on the Ball family. In Via Yahoo’s Ben Rohrbach, they had the following things to say:
“Big Baller Brand tried to destroy the club,” the team says. “…the club and its goals were merely a joke to the BBB, who were there only to breathe life into their dying TV show.”
Do you see a lie, though? We know what LaVar Ball is all about. He craves the attention; he feeds off it. It’s all about marketing his children, and it doesn’t matter to him how he goes about it. All that matters is the press. But the team didn’t stop there, continuing to rip their attitude.
