I tried to avoid using this family’s name in a story at all costs, but this one was just too good to pass up.
LaMelo Ball, youngest son of LaVar Ball and younger brother of NBA Draft prospect Lonzo Ball, was featured in a new highlight tape that may end Big Baller Brand entirely.
LaMelo is currently listed as a consensus 5-star prospect in the class of 2019 with a firm commitment to UCLA, his only offer.
You may remember LaMelo for scoring 92 points in a single game on wide open layups (and not getting back on defense) several months back. At the time, he took over the social media world, and many thought he could eventually become the best Ball brother in the game.
After watching his latest game highlights, recruiting services may need to pump the breaks on the hype for this kid:

Down 25 points at halftime, good ole’ Coach LaVar gave his team quite the pep talk rocking a “Stay in Yo Lane” shirt…

The “Big Ballers” lost to the Compton Magic 109-57. 52 points.
A little rough when you play someone with half a lick of talent and have to play defense, eh?
LaVar Ball better hope Lonzo pans out, because his Dr. Evil-esque negotiation tactics with sponsors aren’t getting him anywhere…
