LaMelo Ball Records First Triple-Double Of Pro Career


LaMelo Ball has wasted no time going from a standout high school basketball player to a professional at just 16 years old.

On Sunday afternoon, the youngest Ball brother lit up the scoreboard and put together a strong all-around effort to record the first triple-double of his professional career.

In BC Vytautus’ 151-120 win over Jonava in the Big Baller Brand Challenge Games, Ball put up 40 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Older brother LiAngelo Ball added 31 points, 8 rebounds and five assists on the day.

Included in LaMelo’s standout performance were two impressive dunks. While following the play, LaMelo found himself in position to throw down a one-handed alley-oop.

And in case you were wondering whether LaMelo was feeling himself, he threw down a two-handed breakaway jam and took a bow for the crowd.

It’s going to be fun to continue watching LiAngelo and LaMelo develop overseas before eventually trying to make it in the NBA.
