LiAngelo Ball is just days away from knowing whether he’ll be the latest NBA Draft pick from the Ball family. It’s not yet known whether the middle Ball son will be drafted, but the defending champion Golden State Warriors are among the squads interested in him.

After going pro in┬áLithuania following a drama-filled brief stint at UCLA that included Ball being detained in China for theft, there’s definitely come questions about his maturity level.

As a way to potentially move past this, LiAngelo is appearing in a new Foot Locker commercial, making fun of the China incident in the process.

It’s just brilliant.

“That’s an absolute steal.”

Job well done by all involved.

Moving forward, LiAngelo hopes that any team selecting him in Thursday’s draft will also be getting a steal. Insert monkey banging drums GIF here.
