Was checking out high school basketball clips of the Ball Brothers (LiAngelo and LaMelo) and their school logo caught my eye. It was reminiscent to the Minnesota Timberwolves logo in the 90’s. Not just on subject matter but the color schemes are quite similar. I’m not feeling their road jerseys however; the navy-blue numbers are hard to see on evergreen! A shade on a shade… And I’m throwing shade. So it’s a shade on a shade on a shade. Bleh.
More about the Ball Brothers: They have been sweeping the nation the past couple years. Helped Chino Hills High capture the state title last year with their older brother Lonzo Ball, now a UCLA freshman guard.
Both LiAngelo and LaMelo have also committed to UCLA, but they probably won’t get another shot to play with Lonzo, who is expected to be a lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
LaMelo Ball went viral this week… His halfcourt shot VS Foothill got millions of views across multiple media sources and even Stephen Curry had something to say about it…
This is bigger than you think. I’ve never seen so much hype around California high school basketball in a long time.
Their father is living the basketball dream right now. You can tell he’s been pushing them hard for a long time. An athlete himself, I’m sure he’s been waiting for this.
