This is pure hilarity, and LaMelo should be proud.
Virginijus Seskus, head coach of the Ball brothers, is not feeling the 16-year-old LaMelo right now — voicing his frustation, and giving the talented guard a new nickname during an interview with a Lithuanian television station.
“When I watch them in practices, they stand out, especially the little one. You can’t control that little chipmunk,” Seskus said, courtesy of Josh Martin of USA Today Sports. “You say: ‘Don’t shoot 40-footers.’ Next thing you know, he’s shooting 40-footers.
“He’s used to doing that stuff. They’re not used to training hard. You need to make them give 100 percent in practices.”
Seskus was adamant that once the Big Baller Brand Challenge Games end, LaMelo, and LiAngelo will “see that we’re a serious team, and they will need to stop playing around.”
The Chino Hill’s days are gone, and it looks like both players need to start thinking and shooting like professionals.
