LaVar Ball to home school son LaMelo for next two years

LaVar Ball to home school son LaMelo for next two years

Arguably the most famous high school basketball player in the social media era, the youngest Ball Brother became an internet sensation last winter for his half-court jumpers and 92-point performance. I am disappointed it couldn't have worked better for LaMelo and the players. Emboldened by the success of Lonzo and, to some extent, recent UCLA enrollee LiAngelo, LaVar seems to be testing all sorts of gimmicks on LaMelo.

LaVar Ball is pulling his youngest son out of high school.

Appearing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday for Lonzo's second National Basketball Association preseason game, the eldest Ball informed ESPN that he was pulling his youngest son, LaMelo, from high school. He is, apparently, through with high school basketball, though.

Of course, LaVar didn't need to pull LaMelo entirely out of school just to get him away from a coach he didn't like.

"I'm going to make him the best basketball player ever".

We hope that is not the case, but like with everything surrounding LaVar Ball, you can never tell what happens next.

"I see him going to college, but we're going to see what goes on; his development and how everything goes, we'll see".

LaMelo is a 6-3 point guard ranked as a four-star prospect by Scout.com.

Chino Hills hired Dennis Latimore as its new head coach in May, and LaVar made it clear during his interview with ESPN that he did not want LaMelo playing for those "knuckleheads".

With the Ball brothers in action, Chino Hills sold out games, competed for championships, and also went 35-0 a few years ago.

"They're going to come to the house and train with me anyways", LaMelo said.

Whether or not LaVar is a good coach is not the question.

According to the LA Times, LaMelo won't play for a team until next spring in travel ball.
