While his brother Lonzo is getting ready to play next to LeBron James in Los Angeles, LaMelo Ball is throwing hands on a basketball court in Lithuania. With the regular Junior Basketball Association season over, a few of the best of the league hit Europe and was playing against Lithuanian team Alytaus Dzukija where a scuffle broke out.
On an inbound play, opposing player Mindaugas Sušinskas appears to smack LaMelo on the back of the head and was immediately met with a swift slap from the youngest Ball brother. From there a shoving match breaks out between the two teams. LaMelo was ejected from the game, however, the Big Baller Brand appears to be ok with his reaction tweeting “LaMelo Ball wasn’t having the disrespect! #JBAUSA.”
If you happen to be outside of the USA, you can look to catch the JBA in China, Turkey, Russia, Croatia, and other nations worldwide. Check out the fight below and if the JBA isn’t your thing, don’t worry, the NBA is back in just a couple of weeks.
