Good news for Big Baller enthusiasts who were worried that LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball signing with a lower-level Lithuanian team would hamper their ability to represent all three Ball brothers: you can now purchase their Prienu Vytautas jerseys through Amazon.
Sale of the jerseys was announced in December 2017 and first broken by Yahoo! Sports' Shams Charania, who also announced that the brothers are slated to start playing on January 9. There are reportedly around 500 jerseys available in total, 250 for each brother, and individually retail for $99.
The brothers were swarmed when they arrived at Vilnius International Airport this past Wednesday. Lavar Ball, their father and, after a recent Google glitch, alleged founder of the NBA, traveled with them.
LaMelo and LiAngelo's jerseys each cost $30 more than that of their brother, Lonzo Ball, currently averaging 10 points, 6.9 rebounds and 7.1 assists for the Los Angeles Lakers, albeit on just 34.9 percent shooting from the field. Meanwhile, Prienu Vytautas is trying to find creative ways to get the younger Balls on the court without sacrificing their regular league record. LaMelo and LiAngelo have already hit the practice court for their new club, though not wearing their own jerseys.
On the plus side, you can cop the trio of Ball jerseys for less than the cost of the cheapest ZO2: Prime or Melo Ball 1 sneaker available through Big Baller Brand, and whether you like the Prienu Vytautas jerseys or not, they're a whole lot easier on the eyes than Lonzo's ghastly spin on Nas' It Was Written cover that he wore to a game against the New York Knicks.
