The reviews are interesting, to say the least.
As you’ve probably heard by now, the younger Ball brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, are headed to Europe to play pro ball, as the two have signed one-year contracts with the Lithuanian club Vytautas.
They’re scheduled to report next month, and while it’s unclear how the two will fare overseas, what is clear is that their soon-bo-be head coach, Virginijus Seskus, is a bit…on the nuttier side, shall we say. He loves screaming and he loves trunk meats, apparently.
Check it out:
Spoke with a couple more players familiar with the team in Lithuania where the youngest Ball boys are headed. "There's not a lot of structure. The coach goes crazy, yells and screams all the time. … he's crazy." Wonder what the over-under is for the number of days they make it.

Prominant former American player who played for Ball brothers's new coach had some insight on him: 1. Competent coach w/free-wheeling pick-and-roll offense. 2. Speaks no English 3. Screams the entire game. 4. Sold meat out of his car trunk to his players after practice. I swear.

At any rate, Dick Vitale is apparently a fan.
Sounds like my kind of dude!

Never a dull moment when it comes to the Ball brothers, that’s for sure.
