LaVar Ball pulls youngest son from high school

LaVar Ball La Melo Ball

Ball had allegedly not gotten along with the new Chino Hills High School head coach, as both were apparently at odds over the style of play the team was running.

Big Baller Brand patriarch LaVar Ball has made a stunning decision regarding his youngest son, LaMelo Ball. The elder Ball "had already been having concerns about" Dennis Lattmore, the new coach, according to the Times. As if that bombshell wasn't enough, LaVar then spoke to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN concerning the reasoning behind the move and, well, he didn't pull punches.

And yes, pulling LaMelo out of school might make it hard to ensure the guard is eligible to play in college. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore.

USC's Tony Bland has hired a high-profile NY attorney to represent him against the federal charges that resulted in his arrest last week. Now, he will have the next two years to train under his bombastic father and be homeschooled prior to heading off to college. Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage.

OJ Simpson freed from Nevada prison after 9 years
The former football legend was released from the Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada at 12:08AM PT on Sunday (Oct. 1). Tom Scotto, a friend of Simpson's, said the former National Football League star will not hide once he's released from prison .

It looks like LaMelo Ball is going to be getting a "big baller" high school education. "But you know he's got his own shoe, you know the NCAA don't like that, so they might be like, 'Hey, back up.'" I ain't got no problem backing up because we're still going to get to here, he's on deck, coming to the Lakers".

LaMelo Ball is, by nearly any measure, the most famous non-professional basketball player in the world today and the soap opera surrounding his development continued on Monday. That's a level of national exposure the youngest Ball will miss sitting out two seasons while other top prospects, like Zion Williamson, Marvin Bagley and DeAndre Ayton, soak up the sunlight left by LaMelo's exit from the high school hoops scene.

LaMelo Ball still aims to join UCLA one day, but he'll be training and schooling at home in the meantime.
