Ball family takes another L

Starting 2 years ago, in Chino Hills, California, 3 young basketball players by the names of LaMelo, LiAngelo, and Lonzo Ball became famous for dominating in their state high school league. The oldest, at the time, was Lonzo Ball, who was in his senior year of high school, and was planning to attend UCLA to play basketball before heading off to the NBA. LiAngelo (Gelo) is the middle child, who was a junior, and was also planning on going to UCLA like his older brother Lonzo. The youngest of the three Ball brothers, is LaMelo (Melo), who has been playing 16u basketball since he was in the 6th grade. LaMelo’s being a freshman at the time, put a large spotlight onto the Ball brothers, and it definitely stuck with them after the season.

Lonzo Anderson Ball is the oldest of the three Ball brothers and is currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. Lonzo played at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for a year before heading to the 2017 NBA draft, where he was picked second overall by the Lakers. LiAngelo Robert Ball is a 19 year old freshman, who was a former basketball player at UCLA before an incident in China  caused LiAngelo, and three two other teammates, to be suspended from the team. The youngest brother, LaMelo, was a junior at Chino Hills High School, but was pulled out by his father Lavar Ball, and is now being homeschooled. Both LiAngelo and LaMelo are to begin playing overseas soon.

Recently, a lot of negative attention has been falling on the Ball family. The family recently started their own reality show call Ball In The Family. The show had gone well, but interfered with their personal lives and caused drama between some of the boys and their female partners. The show has given the Ball family a lot of success lately and has been good for more exposure. Lonzo has been playing somewhat okay in the NBA and until a few months ago both Melo and LiAngelo had been playing well in their seasons as well.

LiAngelo and 2 of his teammates were arrested in China at a Louis Vuitton store. They were accused of stealing sunglasses and were put into detention. President Trump had talked to the president of China and was able to get LiAngelo and his teammates released from the Chinese police force.

The head of UCLA basketball said that he didn’t want people like LiAngelo and his 2 other teammates to be playing at UCLA anymore, so he, and the other two young men, were suspended permanently from the UCLA basketball program, and UCLA itself.

LaMelo was pulled out of his high school because his father thought it would be better for him to be homeschooled to help him work on his “NBA progress.” We all know what happens when LaVar says something big like this. Most likely, Melo won’t be going to the NBA anytime soon because of his current situation in Lithuania.

NBA teams and more!

Being 8 weeks into the NBA season, the new and improved “super teams” have shown who will succeed in this year’s games and who will lose. This year, many teams have shown that they have what it takes to go all the way to the playoffs, and maybe even win a championship. Some of the better teams in the NBA have been known to not do so well, but because of a few new additions to the team, they have been doing quite well.

The first team that is becoming a surprise is the Minnesota Timberwolves, led by the three-year veteran Karl Anthony Towns. The Timberwolves have started to become a force to be reckoned with and are on a roll to a playoff appearance. The Timberwolves record is currently 14-10 and they are 5th in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves sort of have a “big three” which includes: center Karl Anthony Towns, guard Jimmy Butler, and forward Andrew Wiggins. A few other key players that contribute to the team’s wins are forward Taj Gibson, guard Jeff Teague, guard Jamal Crawford, forward Shabazz Muhammad, and center Gorgui Dieng. The team is still struggling to beat some of the better teams in the West though.

The second team we will be talking about is the Boston Celtics. With the acquisition of guard Kyrie Irving, from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Celtics have the best record in the NBA with a whopping 20-4 record. The Celtics lineup contains guard Kyrie Irving, guard Marcus Smart, rookie forward Jayson Tatum, forward Marcus Morris and center Al Horford. The Celtics lost their star forward Gordon Hayward to a terrible ankle injury that has put him out for the rest of season. Hayward suffered the injury only five minutes into his debut with his new team, and has said to be very happy to be back, and to be able to start recovery for next year’s season. The Celtics have done very well, even with the loss of their hometown hero Isaiah Thomas, and are said to play just as well going into the rest of the season.

The last team that is coming up in the ranks of the NBA and its best teams is the Toronto Raptors. The raptors have a decent record at 14-7. The Raptors are 3rd in the Eastern Conference and have been playing pretty decent as of lately. The Raptors are struggling to try and find a constant starting lineup because of injuries, and just finding the players that fit there offense and defense the best. Right now, the line-up is guard Kyle Lowry, guard Demar Derozan, forward Norman Powell, forward Serge Ibaka, and center Jonas Valanciunas. The Raptors have started to become a threat in the East but will have to be able to confirm a starting line-up to be able to beat the Celtics in a future playoff matchup.
