His older brother is starring for the New Orleans Pelicans. His younger brother will be one of the top picks in the 2021 NBA Draft. But for LiAngelo Ball, his well known family name has not done much to further his NBA career.
Ball, 21, went undrafted back in 2018 and is currently playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder’s G-League team.
With something clearly left to prove, Ball is now banking on himself. Check out the tattoo the youngster got on his back recently. It really is something else.
“Bet on myself. Beat the odds.”
Ball almost literally has a huge chip on his shoulder as he attempts to make an NBA team moving forward.
Remember, the young man was involved in a scandal with his brother, LaMelo, during their days playing ball at UCLA. It led to a trip overseas to play professionally, something that did not work out for the middle of the three sons.
