Lithuanian club BC Prienai Skycop, the former team of LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, issued a press release accusing their father’s, Lavar Ball, “Big Baller Brand” company of making moves that would eventually “destroy the club.”

The release includes some quotes from Prienai head coach Virjginijus Seskus who, among other things, says that LiAngelo and LaMelo were “nowhere near the level” of the Lithuanian LKL league and that they showed no intention for improvement.

“The first and most crucial mistake we made was allowing them, especially Lavar, think that they are in charge of the club – its decisions, its plans and even the game,” Seskus says. “His boys were nowhere near the level of the LKL, let alone NBA, which league obviously understands, seeing the draft outcome. And the most disappointing fact was that they had no inner drive to become better. And when they saw it was going nowhere, they started destroying the club, not paying out prize money to the Big Baller Brand tournament winners etc.”

Prienai was relegated to the Lithuanian Second Division after finishing at the last place of the standings at end of the season.
