Everyone watching the game saw the Ball Brothers combine for 29 points to help BC Vytautas defeat the Zalgiris junior team 90-80 on a court teeming with Big Baller Brand signage and logos. LaMelo had 10 points and nine assists while LiAngelo had 21 and five rebounds. And a potential 125,000 people just googled the Big Baller Brand.
Prienu Vytautas, the Lithuanian team that has signed LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball, has dropped out of the Baltic League in order to play a series of friendlies.
It's apparent LaVarBall's master plan to move his boys away to the relative obscurity of Lithuania's professional basketball league was a success branding opportunity. In comments published Sunday by ESPN, Balltold Goodman that Lakers Coach Luke Walton is "not connecting" with his players, who are "not playing for Luke no more".
The oldest Ball brother, Lonzo, is now a rookie with the Lakers, and LiAngelo is draft-eligible this year. At the end of the presser, a Lithuanian reporter asked Gelo if he had a girlfriend and if he'd like to go out with her.
The Balls could play in the team's Lithuanian league matchup January 13 at Lietkabelis, but that may depend on how they fare in practice and in their debut Tuesday. "It made a good experience to play against him". Great numbers considering the gym they played the game in, only seats 1,500 people. He ain't connecting with them anymore.

Australians mourn death of 14-year-old cyber bullying victim
Amy Jayne Everett, also known as "Dolly", became the face of iconic Australian outback hat maker Akubra when she was 8-years-old. Dolly's death has sparked both sadness and outrage among many families, including those from rural and regional Australia.
In the wake of his remarks regarding Walton, LaVar has drawn a good deal of criticism, including from National Basketball Association legend Reggie Miller, who told the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday that Lakers GM Magic Johnson should step up to LaVar and threaten to trade Lonzo if the father doesn't tone it down.
There was a general feeling of incongruity to the whole exercise, which may be exactly what LaVar wants.
Wouldn't surprise me if 17-year-old Zalgiris PG Rokas Jokubaitis becomes the best National Basketball Association player out of this game.
Vytautas' next game is Saturday night in a Lithuanian league contest at Lietkabelis that counts in the standings.
There were a couple of highlights, such as LiAngelo's open-court dunk and LaMelo's sweet dish to his older brother.
