Can you believe it? LiAngelo Ball went undrafted in last week’s NBA Draft and isn’t even going to be a part of the Los Angeles Lakers‘ Summer League team. Absolutely stunning considering LaVar Ball, a man who supposedly speaks things into existence, predicted Gelo would be on the Lakers next season.
It’s hard to pinpoint where it all went wrong for Gelo. Perhaps it was letting daddy pull him out of UCLA? Stealing in China? Playing meaningless basketball with his brother in Lithuania? Or maybe the scouts were right all along in their assessment that he’s not an NBA talent?
New footage from one of Gelo’s workouts seems to prove the scouts right, as the middle Ball Bro absolutely tanked a three-point shooting drill by going 4-16. To Gelo’s credit, he does make two in a row at some point before concluding with a miss off the side of the backboard.

At least someone from Lithuania got drafted:
