LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball will no longer play basketball in Lithuania. As Sports Illustrated notes, Lithuanian sports journalist Donatas Urbonas revealed the news on Twitter earlier today.
“Ball reality show comes to an end,” reads a tweet from Urbonas. “BC Vytautas confirmed that Ball brothers are set to leave Lithuania next week, with two LKL regular season games left to play. BC Vytautas still will be fighting to avoid relegation.”
Vytautas coach Seskus was shocked with the fact Ball bros left the team with season not finished yet: “It’s just another proof they came here to make a show, not for basketball. It’s sad they didn’t understand what we gave them. We understand how they helped us, but they don’t”— Donatas Urbonas (@Urbodo) April 25, 2018
The Ball family is set to return to Los Angeles next week. “We’re not going to waste our time,” LaVar Ball explained to Urbonas. ”Coach ruined everything and he’ll have to pay the price that Melo is not coming back.” The Ball family were pleased with Lithuania and its people, but they never managed to “get along with the coach.”
