Well, surprise, surprise, surprise! On Sunday night, LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball led their Los Angeles Ballers team to a 131-121 victory over the Seattle Ballers in the first-ever championship game of LaVar Ball’s JBA league.
Gelo won MVP of the game after scoring a game-high 58 points (24-53 FG, 7-16 3PT) to go with 11 boards and six assists. The 58 tied the league-high total he set two playoff games ago but wasn’t a big surprise since he averaged a league-leading 50 a game during the season…and HE TOOK 53 SHOTS!
Melo flirted with another triple-double with 34 points (10-23 FG, 7-16 3PT), 15 boards and 9 assists with 11 turnovers. This also wasn’t too surprising since he led the league in assists (11) and turnovers (6.5).
As a reward for passing the ball to Gelo and rebounding a lot of missed shots, each member of the championship team was given a 2018 Cadillac ATS Sedan. Nice!
