Sunshine state

As Melo is at the prep school, SPIRE Academy, which travels the nation playing games. Excluding Lonzo, the whole Ball family including J-Ray went to Florida to watch Melo play and they also had a pop-up shop for Big Baller Brand. What was unique about this specific pop-up shop was that the grandparents were the ones signing the autographs and not LaVar and his sons.

The pop-up shop turned out well and SPIRE won the game 95-84.

Since they were in Florida, Gelo and J-Ray went to a gulfarium which consisted of animals that don't live underwater as well as animals that do live underwater. Gelo joked that he was excited to see J-Ray in his natural habitat at the gulfarium. While there, J-Ray held an alligator and tried to get Gelo to kiss it. Also, a penguin bit Gelo and almost bit J-Ray.

To spread Christmas cheer, the Ball family went to a soup kitchen to help the unfortunate. The Ball family felt great to be helping people in need as they said that giving is better than receiving.
