Lithuanian announcer hilariously breaks into song to welcome LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball

"I don't care about the money", LaVar told ESPN last week.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball's move to Lithuania has drawn both negative and positive reactions.

LaMelo was supposed to be a junior this season at Chino Hills High School, but his father pulled him out of school with the intent of home schooling him.

Former UCLA basketball star LiAngelo Ball will be playing in Lithuania for the rest of the season after he was suspended over a shoplifting incident in China that required the intervention of President Trump. LaVar said he would have both LiAngelo and LaMelo bypass college basketball and planned to search out pro jobs overseas. That appears set to happen early next year, as the two teenagers have reportedly signed one-year contracts with a club in the Lithuanian League.

As for Prienai itself, it's a 10,000-person town on the Neman River in southern Lithuania. He left the team after a month.

The outlet adds that agent Harrison Gaines fielded a number of worldwide deals for the brothers, but the signing with Vytautas Prienai offered the most potential for the players to find minutes. "The priority is for the boys to play on the same team". The game was abandoned with 3 minutes to go at 65-65 after the coach was ejected due to some questionable calls.

LiAngelo, at 6-foot-5, is a limited ball handler and defender and plays strictly below the rim and therefore is not expected to add any value to in the Lithuanian or Baltic leagues. "Lithuania is lovely country".

It will be interesting to see how the two brothers adapt to the different style of play in Lithuania and perform in the Baltic league.
