Je’Rell Springer is the Perfect Star Player to Rival LaMelo Ball in the JBA League


It’s been less than a week and the JBA League has been off and running with no plans of slowing down. For Seattle Ballers point guard, Jerell Springer, that appears to be the case as well. When it was announced last month that LaMelo Ball would indeed join the upstart league, many wondered if other players would draw the same appeal as the young celebrity.

Insert Je’Rell Springer.

Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, Springer showcased his immense talent during the Houston tryouts and blew the talent evaluators away. Fast forward to now, and he’s continued the same for the Seattle Ballers in the JBA League.

Blessed with the perfect basketball body at 6-foot-4 with great length and skills to match, Springer set out a mission to let the world know he too belonged in the same breath as LaMelo and with two games under his belt, he has not disappointed in the least.

From the outset on Sunday’s huge match up between the Los Angeles Ballers and the Seattle Ballers, Springer made his presence felt in front of the home crowd as he quickly put up the Seattle Ballers’ first 7 points in the first minute of the game. For his efforts, he finished the contest with 48 points in a losing effort, but he got the attention of thousands of fans watching live via the Facebook Watch platform on the JBA page.

While this league is still young, it is begging for rivals and head-to-head showdowns. For good reason, many want to tune in to see LaMelo — but now, Springer is putting everyone on notice that he too deserves the same top billing treatment.

He wears the number 0, and it was apropos how many were liking him to Oklahoma Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, who coincidentally was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics 10 years ago.

Who knows how the season will end for Springer, but if the first two games are foreshadowing, expect the Springer/LaMelo battles to be epic — and Springer to continue to make a name for himself. Stay tuned.
