Lithuania has caught Ball Fever. It started when LaMelo Ball, LiAngelo Ball, and their father LaVar arrived in Lithuania on Wednesday, and they were greeted at the airport with a reception that’s usually reserved for boy bands or pop stars who got married in Vegas. LaMelo and LiAngelo are just there there to play basketball and start their professional careers for Prienu Vytautas, but everyone is already obsessed.
The outbreak of Ball Fever continued on Friday when their new team introduced the three Balls at a press conference. If you want to know how the whole thing went, the last question sums it up pretty well: a local reporter asked LiAngelo out on a date. Seriously.
