The Best Of Ballislife: The Official LaMelo Ball Mixtape

If you’re a basketball fan, then you probably know all about Ballislife. The Ballislife crew creates some of the best basketball videos in the world. Eastbay has teamed up with Ballislife on marquee events like the Ballislife All-American Game, which is one of the fastest growing high school All-American games in the country, having featured big names like Tyler Ulis, Zach LaVine, Stanley Johnson, Isaiah Briscoe, Thon Maker, Brandon Ingram, and Skal Labissiere.

Each month, we’ll feature some of the top videos from the Ballislife team. This month includes LaMelo Ball’s official mixtape, an inside look at Jaylen Hand’s life off the court, a look at how Lonzo Ball went from a skinny 9th grader to a likely lottery pick, and the latest from internet sensation and 5-star prospect Zion Williamson.

The Official LaMelo Ball Mixtape

LaMelo Ball’s run-and-gun, free-wheeling style of play has captured the attention of the nation. Now, Ballislife has created the official LaMelo Ball mixtape. There’s been some pretty crazy mixtapes on the Internet, but Ball’s might be the craziest yet. And he just finished his sophomore season. It’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a lot more of the youngest Ball brother in the next few years.

Jaylen Hands: A Day In The Life

There are thousands of basketball highlight videos on the internet, but an inside look at the life of a 5-Star prospect is pretty rare. UCLA signee Jaylen Hands opened his doors and welcomed Ballislife into his home for a rare look at his life off of the court, the pressure he faces, and the work he has to put in to be successful.

The Evolution of Lonzo Ball

Lonzo Ball is one of the biggest names in basketball today and could become a top pick in the 2017 draft. He’s been in the spotlight for years as a high-profile recruit and college star, but before all of that he was a skinny 9th grader trying to make a name for himself. Ballislife took a deep dive into the evolution of Lonzo Ball, who has developed into one of basketball’s most polarizing figures before even entering the league.

Zion Williamson vs. Romeo Langford Showdown

Zion Williamson’s highlight-reel plays have gone viral a number of times. The 5-star prospect squared off against another 5-star recruit in Romeo Langford for an epic showdown. See who came out with the W at the 2017 adidas Gauntlet in front of a ton of blue blood college coaches.

Melo Ball Goes Off In Front Of His Brothers

The youngest Ball brother delivered a dominating performance in a spring game as his team put up nearly 100 points in an easy victory. Melo is used to delivering big victories, but usually his older brother is on the court with him. With Gelo heading off to UCLA next year, watch Melo run the show and deliver a highlight-worthy performance with both of his big brothers in the stands.
