LaVar Ball pulling La Melo from Chino Hills'I'm not dealing with the coach over there

LaVar also repeatedly used Lonzo's likeness to promote Big Baller Brand items, a choice that suggested the threat of the NCAA ruling his son ineligible didn't particularly faze him. LaVar has threatened to have LaMelo skip college ball entirely and go play internationally before being draft-eligible. The elder Ball "had already been having concerns about" Dennis Lattmore, the new coach, according to the Times.

"I'm not dealing with the coach over there", LaVar told ESPN.

John Feinstein says college basketball and football cheating won't stop until the penalties are stiffer. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore.

"That coach has his own frame of mind on how he wants to play and who he picks in the team. It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team". Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage.

This really isn't all that surprising, given the direction the senior Ball has had his son running towards the past year or so. Without me training those players at my house.

Despite the eligibility question, Sondheimer reports Ball intends to have LaMelo Ball enroll at UCLA when the time comes.

But by lashing out at the Chino Hills coaches and prematurely ending LaMelo's high school basketball career, LaVar is showing what happens when he doesn't get his way.

He was taken No. 2 overall by the Lakers.

That depends. Who does LaVar bring in to train LaMelo?

LaVar's latest decision, to lift LaMelo from the high school where he has starred, is shocking in that it's rare and counter-intuitive but also predictable in that LaVar's chief goal for his sons seems to be National Basketball Association stardom, and you don't need to know trigonometry or European history to make an All-Star Game.
