Virginijus Seskus: LaVar can be my assistant

Lithuanian side Vytautas and head coach Virginijus Seskus are certainly excited about having the Ball brothers with the playcaller even saying that father LaVar could be an assistant.

In an interview with LRytas, Seskus, who speaks no English, is looking forward to welcoming LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball and is not worried in case their father, LaVar decides to interfere with the team.

“When we get with him (LaVar Ball), we will put a good show. In the worst case, he can be my assistant,” coach Seskus joked. “Then he can shout at my players, not me.”

The 50-year-old coach thinks that LiAngelo and LaMelo can truly be useful to the team.

“Why not? Clearly, it will be difficult for a 16-year-old and he’ll take time to adapt in European basketball,” Seskus said.

“But we will try to help them and pay them extra attention. My son Edvinas played in a Lithuanian League match when he was 14. I think that it will be good for the brothers that they will practice and play with grown men.”
