The news that LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball would be playing in Lithuania has sparked all kinds of questions. How will they handle a different kind of basketball? How will they tolerate being so far from home, in a small, foreign town with few English speakers? What will they eat? Where will they live?
We don’t know the answers to most of those questions, but we do have the answer to where the Ball boys will be living. According to the team’s athletic director, who spoke on a news report, they’ll be living at Vytautas Mineral Spa.
As you might have guessed from the name, it’s a fancy European spa with tons of treatments and amenities out the wazoo. There’s even a short video on YouTube that features a tour of the facility.
Nice, right? Very tranquil and modern-looking. Seems like the perfect place for LiAngelo and LaMelo to come home to after a tough day on the court. There’s an onsite restaurant and bar, and the spa offers facials, body treatments, saunas, mud baths and massages. But not just any massages! Massages that won gold medals at the Baltic Massage Championships! That’s legit.
The spa’s website has some interesting descriptions of their facility. The site is in Lithuanian, but we have a rough idea of what it says thanks to the magic of Google Translate.
Just 20 meters from the complex, you can see a 715-meter deep well with a high mineral content of water. “Vytautas mineral SPA” mineral water has no analogues all over the world, in the depths of the earth it has formed over hundreds of millions of years, and now each of us can be proud of the health and healing powers that it provides. Unique borehole water has a beneficial effect on treating nervous, digestive, and joint diseases by reducing stress.
Vytautas mineral SPA service and the interior of the building blend into a whole that gives inner peace, allows the body to relax, relax. That’s why the corridors in the spa area are round and curved shapes.
Ancient healing waters and calm-inducing curved corridors. People are saying that the Ball boys might not last a month in Lithuania, but with all of this at their fingertips, I’m not sure they’ll ever want to leave.
