Zion Williamson vs. LaMelo and LaVar Ball tomorrow in Vegas

How appropriate is it that one of the most anticipated matchups of the summer will take place in Las Vegas?

Tomorrow night, 2018 phenom Zion Williamson and his SC Supreme squad will face off against the youngest member of the Ball family, LaMelo, and Big Baller Brand, coached by the infamous LaVar, in the adidas Summer Championships. Zion is considered the second best player in the 2018 class, while LaMelo is currently the top ranked point guard in 2019 in ESPN’s rankings.

Like his brothers, LaMelo has gotten more than his fair share of publicity over the past few years, but this summer, he’s going toe-to-toe with the best players in the country now that Big Baller Brand is participating in major AAU tournaments. This probably won’t surprise you, but this past weekend, LaVar pulled his team off the court and forfeited a game at a tournament in California. LaMelo found it all hilarious (language NSFW):

His dad’s antics aside, LaMelo can ball. He turned in back-to-back 50-point games earlier this month:

That’s all fine and good, but I have a feeling Zion will steal the show tomorrow night. Look at what he did in front of John Calipari a few weeks back at the adidas Gauntlet:

On Friday, LaMelo will go head-to-head vs. Zion’s friend and potential future Kentucky teammate Immanuel Quickley. While Zion vs. Big Baller Brand will steal headlines, that’s the real matchup Kentucky fans should look out for. Expect John Calipari to be front and center for both.

    Is LaMelo the one that the video’s have been showing up with him missing dunks, bricking 3’s and taking horrible contested shots? If so how in the world is he the #1 PG in the class? He is horrible.

      Totally agree. Soft as a baby’s butt and has no interest whatsoever in getting in somebody’s way on defense. I wonder if Alford will recruit this one?

      He’s already committed to UCLA

  4. Zion could outscore him 50-2 and Lavar would claim little Brother Ball outplayed him.
