LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball 1st Pro Game in Lithuania (Live Stream)

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have made their debut in the Lithuanian basketball club they joined after leaving UCLA and Chino Hills High School respectively.

LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball finally made their Lithuania debut Tuesday night where the boys combined to put up 29 points in a 90-80 victory against Zalgiris' second team.

Several Twitter users specifically praised the athletic prowess of the youngest Ball brother, LaMelo, whose oldest brother, Lonzo is back in the States playing with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fans will be able to watch the games through Facebook, who has worked with LaVar Ball and and his Big Baller Brand in the past. The Big Baller Brand Challenge will resume January 15 when Vytautas plays host to the BC Lietuvos rytas reserve team. The Baltic league - considered lower level than the Lithuanian league contests - features squads from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The team will continue to play in the Lithuanian domestic league.

Celine Dion keeps her cool as female fan humps her
DailyEdge is on Instagram! Dion's Quebec media team said they had no details about her health. "Look me in the eyes". After the drunk woman left the platform, Dion thanked the audience for their cooperation.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball touched down in the Baltic nation last week, dropping out of school at behest of their overbearing father. Lonzo Ball and fellow rookie Kyle Kuzma refuted the report. At the end of the presser, a Lithuanian reporter asked Gelo if he had a girlfriend and if he'd like to go out with her.

"When you come out and they change it just for the Balls", LaVar Ball told ESPN, "you know it's real". Vytautas is already seeing the benefits as they've become the most popular team in the country as a result. "Luke doesn't have control of the team no more".

Those remarks brought sharp criticism, for both Ball and ESPN, from other National Basketball Association coaches, including Steve Kerr, Rick Carlisle and Stan Van Gundy, but Tuesday was all about Big Baller Brand, at least at the 1,500-person gym in Prienai. He ain't connecting with them anymore. The ones who aren't winning the LKL championship every year?

In the wake of his remarks regarding Walton, LaVar has drawn a good deal of criticism, including from National Basketball Association legend Reggie Miller, who told the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday that Lakers GM Magic Johnson should step up to LaVar and threaten to trade Lonzo if the father doesn't tone it down. "He could really destroy LaVar if he really wanted to". I mean sure, it's one thing to follow all the big games.
