LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball held their first press conference in Lithuania on Friday, and it was every bit as bizarre as you would expect it to be. It started with LiAngelo and LaMelo showing off their new Prienu Vytautas jerseys (which you can buy for less than $100 on Amazon right now!) alongside their dad, LaVar Ball, who also received a jersey for some strange reason while threatening to come out of retirement.
And the press conference ended with an incredibly awkward moment involving LiAngelo and his love life. As things came to a close, a female reporter asked LiAngelo if he’s single—and then seemed to ask him out. ESPN’s Jeff Goodman later identified the woman as Evelina Pavliukovic, a reporter for LNK V.
LiAngelo was initially taken aback by the question and asked her to repeat it. When she did, he responded with a simple "no comment" that got a lot of laughs from the crowd of reporters gathered around the Ball brothers and their dad.
LiAngelo’s response to the question also got quite a reaction on social media with people pointing out the absurdity of it all.
Despite what he said, it appears as though LiAngelo has a girlfriend, too. He’s dating his high school sweetheart Isabella Morris from his hometown of Chino Hills, California. They have a number of photos together posted on Morris’ Instagram page.
That only serves to make this entire situation even more awkward than it already was.
