Ball Brothers bring home the JBA trophy.
LaVar Ball's Junior Basketball Association wrapped up the inaugural season over the weekend with a championship matchup between LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball's Los Angeles Ballers and the Seattle Ballers. Once again, the Ball brothers combined for a ridiculous 92 points as the Ballers from L.A. secured a 132-121 victory in the first ever JBA title game at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.
LiAngelo led the way with 58 points (on 53 shot attempts), in addition to 11 rebounds and six assists, while LaMelo added 34 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists. However, the younger Ball brother also turned the ball over 11 times and connected on only two of seven shots from three-point range.
Following the conclusion of the game, LiAngelo was named MVP and each member of the Los Angeles Ballers reportedly received brand new Cadillacs, as shown in the tweet below.
Although the JBA's first season has officially come to an end there's still more to come, as 10 of the league's best players will reportedly embark on an international tour to compete against overseas squads.
It's still unclear what lies ahead for the Ball brothers but 16-year-old LaMelo's next move could be to Poland, since he won't be draft eligible until 2020. During an episode of "Ball In The Family" back in May, LaVar headed to Gdynia, Poland to tour the facilities of Asseco Gdynia, one of the top teams in Polish basketball history.
“To me, this Polish team I think is going to be right for Melo. The next move could be here … The facility looks amazing: nice, big offices, weight rooms and nutritional rooms, it just got a better, professional feel about it.”
