UCLA freshman Lonzo Ball is a virtual lock to go in the top 10 in the 2017 NBA draft. Such lofty status is bound to give a young man a certain degree of swagger. Yet Lonzo might not even be close to the swaggiest member of the Ball family, judging by this footage of younger brother LaMelo—a high school sophomore—pointing at the half-court line before casually pulling up and nailing a half-courter. He then walked away like it was nothing because, seriously, what else is there to do at that point?
Such is life for the youngest Ball brother, who committed to UCLA at the age of 13. Middle bro (and current teammate) LiAngelo has also committed to the Bruins. For now, though, the two lead a Chino Hills (Ca.) high school squad that remains undefeated following their win against Foothill in the 2016 Rancho Mirage Holiday Invitational. Last season all three Ball brothers led Chino Hills to an undefeated season and a CIF Open Division state title.

LiAngelo scored 65 points, but LaMelo got the highlight of the night. Isn't that just like a younger brother to steal the attention despite all your hard work?
