LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Leigh Steinberg, one of the most well-known sports agents, expressed bewilderment Tuesday for LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball’s choice to play professionally in Lithuania, a move likely orchestrated by their father LaVar.

Steinberg, once dubbed the “Super Agent” has represented over 300 athletes, including eight No. 1 NFL draft picks, in his 40-plus year career and was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire. He said this is most concerning for 16-year-old LaMelo who was recently yanked out of high school by his dad to be home-schooled.

“This is a very strange experiment. We’ve never seen anything like this before.” Steinberg said in an interview with KNX1070.
