The struggles of the Ball family have been out and about for all to hear and see since Lonzo has played at UCLA. Now that LiAngelo has been removed from the school, the circus will now move overseas.
Both LiAngelo and his younger brother LaMelo are going to Lithuania joining Prienu Vytautas to play basketball. The news around the move has sent shockwaves through the basketball community. Not because it is big news but because of the head-scratching nature of it all.
Reports about the team they are going to play for have been rampant but one report from ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla is too good not to share.
Prominant former American player who played for Ball brothers's new coach had some insight on him: 1. Competent coach w/free-wheeling pick-and-roll offense. 2. Speaks no English 3. Screams the entire game. 4. Sold meat out of his car trunk to his players after practice. I swear.

If you ask LaVar, their father about the move, he doesn’t think there is anything to worry about.
“There’s not gonna be a struggle at all,” LaVar said when asked by TMZ about the families worries about playing overseas.
The media circus may slow down as the Ball’s move their act across the ocean. The success of the sons won’t change much but the scrutiny will only get ratcheted up as LaVar continues to meddle in their lives.
