LaMelo Ball has made his return to Lituania today as part LaVar Ball’s, his father, Junior Basketball Association (JBA) international tour.
Throughout the tour they will play 28 games over 3 months. A lot of these games are more for publicity and not really too note worthy.
Shockingly, the Ball’s always find a way to make the news, and LaMelo did just that. The 17-year-old slapped an opponent, with some good landing on it, right in the face.
This of course, lead to a good ol’ fight.
The JBA will be making stops all across Europe and Asia over the next few weeks, including stops in Germany, France, Croatia, China and the Philippines. The JBA’s 13-man All-Star roster includes LaMelo’s brother LiAngelo, as well as their LA Ballers teammates Gregory Floyd and Melvin Davis.

It will be interesting to see how LaMelo and the Ball Brothers continue to get treated after more bad publicity. As we know, LiAngelo, his older brother, got arrested in China last year for stealing sunglasses. Luckily the oldest brother Lonzo has stayed out of trouble and now earns the most spotlight being a part of a LeBron James lead Lakers team.
