If the JBA doesn’t appeal to him, perhaps LiAngelo could consider the Chinese Basketball Association. If NBA scouts aren’t convinced by what they’ve seen from him in Lithuania’s LKL—the 11th-best league in the world, according to ESPN.com’s Fran Fraschilla—a move to the CBA, ranked 12th, may help him juice his numbers and get noticed.
Success against softer competition might build LiAngelo’s nfl jerseys china confidence, perhaps to the point he’d be ready to skip right past the LKL in a few years and take a crack at the eighth-ranked Adriatic League!
This’ll work so long as LiAngelo didn’t do anything dumb in China like, say, getting arrested for shoplifting.
The CBA presents a problem much like the one the G League does. While it’s easy to conclude the competition is suspect based on guys like Jimmer Fredette, Jared Sullinger and Terrence Jones performing well there, it’s vital to remember those guys were dominant college talents, reasonably effective NBA players at some point…or both.nfl wholesale jerseys
LiAngelo isn’t on the same level as NBA washouts killing it in China, which means he’d have to be comfortable going over there (if anyone would take him) and riding the pine. For someone with NBA dreams, that doesn’t seem like the best strategy.nfl jerseys from china
With options limited by his game and baggage (both self-created and handed down from his father), a return to Lithuania seems like LiAngelo’s best bet. His father can manage the environment and narrative there, and he’s scoring 15.7 points per game on 45 percent shooting from deep in his first nine games with Vytautas Prienu.
“He’s shot it well in Lithuania,” Wasserman said. “But it won’t be enough to make up for his inability to pass, rebound or defend, not to mention the character concerns official nfl jerseys cheap raised from the shoplifting incident. Continuing to build up his game and brand in Lithuania may be his best move, assuming he goes undrafted.”
