LiAngelo and Lonzo Ball

LiAngelo Ball has declared himself for the 2018 NBA draft, according to Yahoo Sports. But sports analysts say he will almost certainly go undrafted.

LiAngelo, pictured left with his L.A. Laker brother Lonzo Ball, is currently playing for Vytautas Prienu team in Lithuania, along with his 16-year-old brother, LaMelo Ball.



LiAngelo’s outspoken father LaVar Ball threatened to make Lonzo leave the L.A. Lakers if they didn’t sign LiAngelo or LaMelo. But the Lakers have Lonzo locked into a contract until 2021.

Sports analysts say NBA teams won’t pick LiAngelo because he simply isn’t good enough.

via SB Nation — This is a no-brainer move for LiAngelo Ball, but there are no expectations that he will be selected in either round this June, despite his social media fame. Before he was detained for shoplifting in China during a preseason trip, Ball was slated to come off the bench for the UCLA Bruins this season. There is a very short list of players who are drafted despite coming off the bench for their college team, and they usually involve circumstances that don’t apply to Ball.

At best, I could see the Lakers extending a summer league invite to LiAngelo Ball, or perhaps even signing him to their G-League team. But if he’s simply not good enough, and most indications are that he’s not, then even that would be an insult to actual G-League players who do deserve a look…

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The daddy is so unattractive

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    I really don’t know what the rush is China was just in November he is only 19, and only doing marginally well overseas and Lonzo is still trying to find his own game for the NBA level. I’m sure Lavar has a plan because you just know this lil boy will get drafted. He was connects with Magic and probably Masonic ones too. All this matters, if he wants his kids to all be Ballers then they will.

  • Simone

    Sandra can you please pretty please find out which actress bit Beyonce?

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

  • klwbaby

    His father said out of the three sons, he is the worst. I doubt any NBA team wants to deal with his issues or deal with the dad’s loud azz mouth .

  • KISSmyENTIREass

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    nope, i feel like being irritating today.

  • Yardgirl

  • hi-liter

    Tiffany just BSing….she just a crazy Bey stan.

  • iWasteTime

    I think Tiff was joking and being a comedian.
    Did an actress get handsy with Hov, probably. Did said actress bite Bey, and Bey say all that? Nope … lol
    I’m employed and apart of the over 35 Hive

  • iWasteTime

    Saana said She did not … lol

  • hi-liter

    NBA aint got no practice squad like the NFL…..the boys seems okay, it’s their father who is going to burn all types of bridges for them….ALL tree of them.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    I do ? and I LOVE Angelica Houston I watch Adam’s family 2 times a week ?

  • hi-liter

    I agree, she IS a comedian, and she likes to make up stories, that’s how she got that Groupon deal. Kinda reminds me of Dave Chappel and Charlie Murphy with them Prince stories.

  • Red Grant

    poor kid…his dad is dumb as a sack of rocks

  • Phillybruh

    Some team will draft him.

  • iWasteTime

    And the fact that it keeps getting bigger,
    Now there is a bite on the face

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Isn’t his girlfriend pregnant?
    Boy you better find a job.

  • Trey

    He is not NBA caliber

  • Ghost

    TMZ is saying it was Sanaa Lathan! smh

  • shelly

    There is no way in hell Julian would let anyone bite Beyoncé. I think Tiffany is just joking she knows Beyonce likes to be low key.

  • Karen Brady

    They don’t want his deranged daddy either.

  • Karen Brady

    Laughing and smiling..me too

  • Karen Brady

    Sanaa denied it.

  • TxCyn

    Is it me or does Tiffany talk …. way too much. I just don’t know … she just comes off celebrity obsessed and involved. That move with Meryl Streep at the Oscars … now this. After that Beyonce rap reference I personally would have shut up …. I just don’t know .

  • zero options

    In lithuania or some other former satellite communist country

  • zero options

    I can’t understand why he lets his deranged dad push him around.

  • zero options

    Hey Miss sandra,
    how about a story on Giannis Antetokounmpo?
    The Greek Freak!
    He seems to be the nicest most grounded and a damn great player.
    I didn’t know about his background until he was on 60 minutes.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Sanaa Latham

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I don’t know what the big deal is

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    ???

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Me too!!!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The movies?

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    yes they just hilarous

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Me toooo … I think she’s playing on the ” take too much thing ” so she’s giving people something to talk about . But she’s running out

  • angrysolo

    as if

  • Conscience

    They don’t want the drama of his father. Unbelievable he would sabotage his kids careears with his antics. He is a real ass hole.

  • Yardgirl

    Lol it’s all over the entertainment shows too!! Crazy!!

  • Yardgirl

    Poor Saana all caught up in this madness!

  • TrollingStoned

    Which is why he should’ve stayed in college lol gotten a free ride and done something else with his life. Now if this is true he’ll be chasing those NBA dreams forever and while living off his brothers because his father didn’t let him get that UCLA fallback degree.

  • Logan Roberts

    Those stories were true, Prince and Rick James both confirmed it.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Its all over YOUTUBE thats it was Sanaa Lathan ?

  • hi-liter

    Yeah I know those stories were true but they still sound ridiculously made up.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    He is hella hot and I would love to see him on a team in the NBA every game .. Hell I would watch the team play just to lust over him !!!

  • Malcom Flex

    Another black male breed himself out and trying to pass those mutts off as black. This has ALL been predicted already.

  • Allihave2say

    The sons will end of killing there malignant narcissistic father or becoming bottom feeding drug addicts. I’m all for marketing and pushing for your kids but there’s a way to do business and Mr. Ball drops the ball every time he opens his mouth.

  • Allihave2say

    He is a narcissistic self entitled ass-hole.

  • Allihave2say

    Their father has probably been abusive, demeaning, self serving and sabotaging them their whole lives. I doubt they were able to make a decision about their choice of toothpaste let alone life goals. Dad has a huge ego and PD to go with it. His delusions wouldn’t allow him to allow his children to grow into themselves.

    These types of parents destroy their children’s self esteem. Not only their kids but their spouses too. I understand making money but this husband was nowhere to be found while his wife was in the hospital.

  • JENNYJONES1

    NO TMZ NAMED ALL OF THE ACTRESSES THAT WERE/ HAD BEEN ACCUSED OF BITING BEY AND SANAA LATHAN UNLUCKILY IS THE CURRENT ONE AND SHE DENIES SHE DID IT JUST LIKE THE OTHERS HAVE………JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    YES SHE DOES TALK WAY TOO MUCH BUT BEY AIN’T MAD B/C HER NAME IS ON EVERYONE’S LIPS AND SHE HAS A TOUR ABOUT TO KICK OFF. STRAIGHT FREE PROMO……..JENNY JONES!!!

  • Panther Charleston

    If I owned a team, I’d be like, I’ont care how hard he ball, I ain’t got a lick of time for that smart-mouth pappy of his. Neeeext!

  • nick c

    I agree the use to him starting and ending all fights they probably don’t have the energy to fight with him either.

  • Allihave2say

    Daddy is an emotional vampire. After he’s destroyed their lives and spirits he will sent them in flames with comments about how they were never good enough to amount to anything.

  • pure_rachet

    Have you heard him speak? I doubt he would have gotten the degree either.

  • HelloToni

    This is music to my ears!

  • datjerk

    The cutest of the 3.

  • Layah Jhene

    Pretty much

  • Coco_Butter

    Maybe the sons got that Frankenstein look from the mom’s side of the family. Because their mix was not good lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    Really??? Is he a mumble mouth??? I’ve never heard him speak…

  • Quitedeliteful

    chilled borscht.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    LOLLOLLOL!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Poor kid. I wonder if He won’t get drafted because of his father or because he really is not that talented…

  • V Dubb

    Oh really?!?!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    It’s something about this boy I find sooooo sexy

  • You already know ?

    He is really not that talented…. “real talk

  • Trace da Ace

    well thats what happens when your father thinks he is the bomb.com and can tell folks what to do…..tell your dad to have a nice tall glass of “shut the fuck up”…..and you and your brother stop having sticky fingers….

  • pure_rachet

    totally.

  • Birdman24

    NO he is not good!!!

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I heard the opposite, hopefully he will be picked-up. The Balls’s hustle hard! I’m not mad at this family, get that money, and shut-down the haters!

  • teather

    Watch. Remember this is a capitalistic society, not a society of ethics and morals. Some team WILL take him.

  • Karen Brady

    a nice tall glass of “shut the fuck up”.. LOL!!! I love this and have to use it :-)

  • TheOwley

    To all professional Basketball teams, prepare for this, permanently:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c3e21b11ea394c32dfb7c47aeb07d16c7d536d0609c4f952517f088834265394.jpg

    Or do yourselves a big favor and take a pass because that thing comes attached with super crazy glue.

  • TheOwley

    The father is in charge. Those 3 kids do as he says, they don’t have a mind of their own. One day they will come to realize how detrimental he has been in their career, but it will be a while.

  • TheOwley

    I think it’s the older brother with the Lakers.

  • TheOwley

    Love your analysis. One day when they are much much older and look back, they will resent their father. I’ve heard of helicopter parents but this guy goes beyond that. He’s a saboteur for sure, one of those men that says if I can’t have you, no one else can. He’s a bit worrisome to me.

  • TheOwley

    Well he’s going to need some one to blame right? Right now it’s the coaches. When the kids go past their prime, he will let them have it. He’s the typical narcissist.

  • TheOwley

    Why? Ball has made it clear he wants all 3 sons playing for the Lakers. Why draft him and have big mouth papi run his mouth all day until they trade him to the team he wants.

  • Allihave2say

    Malignant narcissism…

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Who?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No one bit Beyonce. Tiffany is lying again for attention. She is truly pathetic.

  • zero options

    WHO?!?!?
    Miss Rose!
    I don’t even follow bball and I know who he is!
    He’s a modern day cinderella story and probably the nicest guy in the sport.
    His parents, if i remember correctly, migrated to greece from nigeria, survived all the hardships that immigrants face.
    The kids started playing bball at their fathers suggestion.
    Giannis was eventually spotted by a scout, given a chance and recruited by the milwaukee bucks (15th pick).
    Use your reporting skills, maybe get an exclusive interview with him!
