LiAngelo Ball Trolls HIMSELF In New Foot Locker “One And Done” Commercial (Video)
LiAngelo Ball isn’t your typical one and done NBA prospect. In fact, depending on who you talk to, he’s not an NBA prospect at all. It’s true that LiAngelo was briefly enrolled as a student-athlete at UCLA. But he never played a regular season game with the Bruins. His dad pulled him out of school after he got busted for shoplifting in China. He then went and played part of a season with BC Vytautas. But his dad pulled him out of there, too. So any way you look at it, calling LiAngelo Ball a one and done player is a bit of a stretch. Zero-point-five and done maybe.
I bring this up now because it’s the context you need to fully appreciate the latest Foot Locker ad.
With the 2018 NBA Draft getting underway on Thursday, the world’s biggest sneaker retailer has a new series of commercials paying tribute to all the “One and Done” players. One of the ads features former Oklahoma Sooner Trae Young. Another features LiAngelo Ball, who hilariously pokes fun at himself for his legal misadventures and his highly publicized tenure in Lithuania.
Take a look:
Good to see LiAngelo cracking jokes now. He probably won’t be in the mood for humor after he goes undrafted.
