LiAngelo Ball is still getting plenty of attention.
The middle Ball Brother is facing backlash on social media after revealing the name of his unborn baby.
As the second son of LaVar Ball, LiAngelo is now playing for the G League’s Greensboro Swarm. The Ball family has a tradition of basketball and naming their children with names starting with “L”.
Recently, LiAngelo shared photos of his baby shower with girlfriend Nikki Mudarris, revealing they are expecting a baby boy named LaVelo – a combination of LaVar and LaMelo’s names.
Fans are trolling LiAngelo for the unusual name choice, with some making jokes and memes online.

However, it’s worth noting that this trend was started by LaVar Ball’s family, and he has even received praise for his involvement in his son’s athletic careers, particularly Baby Gronk, a 10-year-old football player being groomed for the NFL.
