Strange things are afoot in Lithuania. And I for one am shocked, SHOCKED, I say, about what is taking place in the Big Baller World.
It seems the highlights coming out of Lithuania featuring Middle Ball and Youngest Ball were taking place during exhibition games they are calling the Big Baller Challenge. These games are against players closer in age to the Balls and NOT against real professionals.

Life in the Big Baller World comes at you fast. One minute you think you’re watching a couple of Future Lithuanian League HoF’ers and the next you find out they’re just a couple of kids playing pickup games half a world away in some sort of expertly conceived attention grabbing rouse to promote a clothing line.
