LaVar Ball to serve as head coach of sons’ Lithuanian team

LaVar Ball continues to move up in the basketball world.

Ball will serve as head coach Sunday for Vytuatas’ game against Jonavos Jonava in the final matchup of the Big Baller Brand Challenge Games, the team announced.

Ball had previously served as assistant coach during Vytuatas’ 147-142 win over BC Dzukija earlier this week.

If you go with eight teams or fewer, your rosters will be stacked with plenty of star power, though you can counter that by enlarging the size of each team’s roster, like using two starters at every position or several utility players. This can be a fun way to get the ball rolling if you are a newbie.

Ten teams is the traditional size of most leagues. The player pool is deep enough that each team has stars, but managers will still have the challenge of picking up free agents and players who are getting hot.

George is averaging 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game on the season.

For a greater challenge, try using 12 or 14 teams. In bigger leagues like that, the player pool is thinned out enough that managers will need to have knowledge of lesser-known players in order to succeed.

Rosters: Standard rosters include one catcher (C), one first baseman (1B), one second baseman (2B), one shortstop (SS), one third baseman (3B), one middle infielder (MI) — filled by a 2B/SS, one corner infielder (CI) — filled by a 1B/3B, five outfielders (OF), one utility (UTIL) spot — filled by any position, nine pitchers (P), and three bench (BE) spots. Those who are on your bench are players who are on your roster but not in your starting lineup.

The fun part of fantasy baseball is all of these options can be adjusted however you see fit. Every league is a little different, and some league commissioners find certain roster settings more fun than others. The options are endless, really.
