His debut has gotten better since this shot.
Today is the Lithuanian professional debut for LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball. The brothers are playing in the first of five exhibitions which comprise, what else, the “Big Baller Brand Challenge.”
The Ball’s Vytautas squad is taking on Zalgiris 2. LiAngelo got the start, but LaMelo checked in early.
Here is a look at his first shot, a 30-foot pull-up three-pointer in transition that was off the mark.

Before you laugh at LaMelo too much, he’s had a couple of nice assists, an old-fashioned three-point play on a drive and a fast break bucket where he nearly dunked. He’s settling in nicely.
