LiAngelo Ball Plays Pickup with LaMelo in 1st Sighting Since China Incident

Teenagers played basketball at a gym. This is typically not considered newsworthy, but two of them have the last name "Ball."

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, the younger brothers of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, recently played a pickup game. 

The former recently returned from China after getting arrested for shoplifting with UCLA Bruins teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill. The school suspended all of them indefinitely when they returned to the United States.

Instead of competing against LeBron James at UCLA's gym, the freshman honed his skills in a game featuring his younger sibling, who is being home-schooled after his father, LaVar Ball, pulled him from Chino Hills High School in October.

The video, courtesy of Hoop Journey, mostly shows the Ball brothers shooting. Maybe it just cut out the passes.
