    Dislike this video this guy pure hate. LaMelo playing in Lithuania is a + to me think about it! What 16 yr old play in a league with grown men on one of the worst teams in that league and still managed to have a couple 30+ games performances. It was obviously evident when he came back to H.S his IQ was way above everybody in SPIRE played with ease making smart passes taking good shots. Proof is the pudding you need to get off that white supremacists 🐎 you riding probably a Trump fan too with all that hate in yo blood put money on that.

    If the kid was "WHITE" he would be the talk of the town, like he & his brother's has been all the damn time; the only difference is the boys didn't get "White Zaddy" approval 👌; hmmm🙄🤨🤔? Amen!!!

    Ppl can't express themselves about the balls in a negative way without making the cry babies mad. It is a mess, it is a joke most of the time. Lavar does hurt those boys more than he helps them now. Maybe not b4 they were grown. But theyre adults now so yeah lavar is only hurting them.

    All the ball kids couldn't survive in the CBA. That's why their father tried to Hype them up so much. To create a distraction. You have players in the NBA right now they can't even shoot. Like home boy on Philadelphia. He's scared 2 shoot! Money money money money ... money!

    Honestly I use to hate on Lamelo, but ever since I watched his families show I have a new view on everyone. Gelo is a man that is soft spoken and has made a mistake, Lamelo has really matured especially when he played for Spire stop showing clips of when he 15 he’s 17 now and starting his second round of playing pro ball. Lonzo is talented but has had injury problems, he works hard to recover. Lavar is a great dad and husband he helps his wife with rehabilitation after her stroke. He pushes his kid so that they can succeed their goals, he always bets on himself and his kids and that’s just being a good dad. Without Lavar Ball acting crazy we might have forgot about the other ball brothers, I think creates controversy so that they pay more attention to his boys.

    Why is ESPN so committed to hating on Lamelo Ball. He is talking about playing within a structured environment like that's what other elite ball player does. Not true, you go up and down the top ranked HS Ballers and I guarantee you, for the most part, their coaches just let them go out and make plays. What's up with this extra standard for Melo?

  • Malik Lee

    How impotent do you have to be to talk down about a 17 year old? He has been doing his thing at spire getting some structure plus he is a team first player which is something considering the style he had when we were first introduced to him. He even says it him self that he thinks lesser of Melo but why? Probably knowing Lavar's mouth he gave that bald cuck a clean f#@k you and his balls shriveled up into a mangina. Now he on espn trying to take his emotions out on a 17 year old.

    I might be alone in this but I like LeAngelo, his shooting form is orthodox, not a bad touch from deep, reminds me of Jae Crowder. I think his Dad should have left him at UCLA after the China incident since they didn't put him off the team.

    "The sons are a story, the rest doesn't interest me." Wow,he actually passively,aggressively denounced Lavar as if the invisible man squirted Lamelo into existence.

    This was a horrible video. Because he’s taking a different route than most players you guys get real disrespectful. All the ball brothers can play. The media shines a different light on them. Just let them hoop and grow their brand like most hoopers should do.

    This guy is talking nonsense🤦🏼‍♂️ In his 92 point game he only cherry picked like 25 points meaning he’s legitimately scored around 65 points. He said Melo went overseas just to promote his new shoe.......wtf. And he acted like playing overseas at age 16 wasn’t tuff af and a very good thing for him. Also he didn’t mention anything about him averaging a triple double at Spire academy🤔This boul didn’t have really anything good to say about him
