Big Ballers London Clash
The London Lions are pleased to announce an International game against Lithuanian LKL side BC Vytautas Prienu on Easter Monday – 2nd April at 4.00pm.
US born brothers Lamelo and LiAngelo currently play for the Lithuanian side and people say they are destined for the NBA like their brother Lonzo Ball who plays for the LA Lakers.
The Big Baller Brand visited the Lions Trophy Semi Final at the Copper Box Arena in February and LaVar Ball, head of the family, couldn’t help but be impressed at the charm London has to offer. The basketball family’s reality TV show, “Ball in the Family”, is one of the number one shows on Facebook, and exposure for this game will be high in the US.
