'Undisputed': LaVar Ball is a genius!

'Undisputed': LaVar Ball is a genius!

The Ball's family fame has transformed from three talented basketball players from Chino Hills, California into becoming worldwide celebrities with a family brand and Facebook reality show. Then he pulled 19-year-old LiAngelo out of UCLA in December following his infamous shoplifting arrest and subsequent suspension. LaVar said he expects his sons to dominate overseas.

LiAngelo and 16-year-old LaMelo reported to BC Vytautas on Wednesday. The elder Ball has taken it to the point where he's removed his younger sons from Chino Hills High School and UCLA to grow their talents even more and groom them for the association. Now the plan is for LaMelo and LiAngelo to play pro ball in Lithuania until they are eligible for the National Basketball Association, at which point they will join Lonzo Ball on the Los Angeles Lakers, win 10 straight championships, and make LaVar Ball the richest man in sports.

As seems to be invariable with Ball, it was the father who was the star on arrival in Vilnius.

Ball also conducted an odd, impromptu press conference during which he asked the Lithuanian press corps about the availability of milk in the Baltic state. I love that milk, man. The biggest winners from the Baller Brand move to Lithuania? "Photographers equipment spilled to the ground, media members falling down".

The Ball family's Lithuanian adventure is going to be everything you hoped, and feared, it would be. Judging by how extensively the media covers them, a lot of people do.
