LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball Lithuanian jerseys now on sale at Amazon
Big Baller Brand might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there is always business to be done and money to be made, regardless of how controversial it may be.
CEO LaVar Ball is always in the news usually talking about the next venture he is planning and most of the time that includes his three sons, who have all been involved in one of the company’s business ventures one way or another.
Recently, Senior Ball decided it would be best to homeschool LaMelo Ball, just prior to pulling LiAngelo Ball from UCLA, ending the dream of all three brothers playing at the same Alma Mater.
More eyebrows were raised when Senior Ball announced that both of his younger sons would forgo college completely and sign with professional Lithuanian basketball club Vytautas Prienai. It wasn’t a ploy either, as the Ball family recently arrived at Vilnius Airport to a madhouse of cameras and media full of excitement due to the anticipated arrival of their guests.

Before the Ball brothers suit up to play a single game, the team had already planned to sell their jerseys online, promising a January release date.
After shipping around 500 uniforms to Amazon in December, the team posted limited edition jerseys live on Amazon for sale at the retail price of $99, which quickly sold out. This, for at least LaMelo, is now set where you can purchase an official LaMelo Ball Lithuanian jersey and a pair of LaMelo Big Baller Brand signature shoes if you have the money to spend.
The uniforms are available in small, medium, large and x-large sizes in LaMelo’s number 1 and LiAngelo’s number 3.
I don’t think it’s been even 12 hours yet, but they done sold out of LaMelo Ball’s pro jersey in all sizes but small on Amazon.

Not only are the two players expected to get enough playing time to matter, but Senior Ball doesn’t expect the stint overseas to last longer than two years before they return to the states for the NBA Draft.
