The Rush: LiAngelo Ball joins L.A. team…that isn’t the Lakers

The Ball family is back in the news once again, announcing that middle child LiAngelo is going to play basketball in L.A.  For the Lakers you ask? With Lonzo and LeBron?  No, no. LiAngelo will be playing for the Los Angeles team in the Junior Basketball Association, owned and operated by pops Lavar.  We wouldn’t bat an eyelash at this if it weren’t for the fact that LiAngelo said only a few weeks ago that playing for the JBA would be a “step back” in his career.  Yikes!

More exciting than a Ball family reunion is the Semifinals of the World Cup.  The players are France vs. Belgium and Croatia vs. England.  Unless you’ve got some family history in those Euro nations, you’re probably wondering which team to root for in the Semis.  The Rush has a bracket to help you decide based on factors having absolutely nothing to do with sports, so watch the video to see the madness!

Finally, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson proved that he is not in fact good at everything.  Pop singer Ciara and her husband filmed a video where they did the “In My Feelings Challenge” and let’s just say that only one of them had any moves.  Ciara got down to business while her husband played hype man in the background, showing a lack of skill with his feet.  Apparently Russ only has the power of fancy footwork while on turf.
