    Lamelo is going to get that twig frame of his destroyed by the physicality of other players. LiAngelo might be alright though.

    they'll be back likely by march , let alone the summer , however i wish them luck as it ain't an easy world in sports . Melo may get offers from G League but i fear for Gelo . Rosetta stone !

    Gonna be good for Lamelo. He’s playing against grown men who are better than the competitors he’d face in high school.

    Couldve skipped all aau shit and hired a full time nba trainer for both of them in the summer. Let them do they thang in the states and Melo wouldve been a lottery pick after 1 yr in college and Gelo wouldve gottwn drafted after about 3 or 4.

    Big ballsack brand is a joke and seeing these comments with little 15
    Year old boys defending lavars decisions it's hilarious , some of u kids need to watch the NBA and stop with this lavar ballsack brand , and watch real basketball players not this reality show kardashian ish shit show , No 16 year old should get taken out of
    Highschool to go to Lithuania and stupid lavar is telling us that was the plan all along OH really it's not the fact that liangelo stole in china got benched at ucla daddy took him off team and now forces lamello to leave highschool if u dumb kids say that homeschooling in Lithuania is the same education as highschool in the U.S ur stupid as lavar is

    Seriously may they go and play ball and with any luck they won't come back.

    I hope it goes well for them and ESPN has to eat their words!
    Players used to go from HS to the NBA at 17-18 years old and I’m gonna guess the NBA is more physical league.
    And lastly, ESPN is just helping BBB to get bigger from all this coverage. They hate on them, but exposure is exposure!
