LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball In Lithuania Is 'Disaster Waiting To Happen,' Per Former Player

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball signed to play professional basketball overseas with Lithuanian club Vytautas Prienai on Monday. The club is coached by a man known as “The LaVar Ball of Lithuania,” so there was immediate speculation regarding how great a of a relationship head coach Virginijus Seskus and Ball family will have.
There’s also the fact that the coach speaks no English.
If you ask former Wisconsin basketball player Ben Brust, who played against Vytautas Prienai during his brief stint in the Lithuanian league, the move is a “disaster waiting to happen.”
Brust believes the Balls will be in for some culture shock and also shared a photo of the team’s gym.

Another former college basketball player, Billy Baron who played at Canisius, explained his relationship with Coach Seskus while he also played in the Lithuanian league. According to Baron, Seskus told him through an assistant coach that he would not see much playing time because they were unable to communicate.

We just hope that “Ball in the Family” returns for a season 2 that highlights ‘Gelo and ‘Melo’s time overseas; along with any communications between LaVar Ball and Seskus.
