LaVar Ball Makes It Official: LaMelo Won't Honor UCLA Commitment

LaVar Ball Makes It Official: LaMelo Won't Honor UCLA Commitment

"I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said in an interview with ESPN. 'I want them to go somewhere where they will play them together on the court at the same time.

Earlier in the week, LaVar reiterated his pipe dream of trying to get LiAngelo and LaMelo to team with their older brother, Lonzo, on the Los Angeles Lakers, but of course, that's as far-fetched as any of his boasts.

LaVar's decision to hire an agent ends any chance of LaMelo (who's now ranked No. 7 nationally in ESPN's class of 2019 high school recruiting rankings) playing college basketball. His father decided they weren't going to wait to find out the length of the indefinite suspension and removed him from the school. Ball then said he sent the President three pairs of Big Baller Brand shoes-one in red, one in white and one in blue-but that Trump didn't thank him for the gesture. It's a future that has nearly certainly been made more unlikely by this move. The NCAA forbids players from signing endorsement deals and could have intervened if LaMelo ever attempted to play for the Bruins.

State Health Minister Satyendar Jain tweeted last week that he has ordered an inquiry "into this unacceptable act". As per the report, no ECG tracings have been done to trace whether the child was alive or not.


According to Goodman, several teams in Europe and Asia (presumably not in China) have expressed interest in signing the Ball brothers. As a former middle school basketball coach, I've witness firsthand how parents think little Johnny or Susan are the next great Olympians and anyone who tells them otherwise is insane and doesn't know what they're talking about.

In another Twitter post, which was a Periscope video, Vitale said that LiAngelo Ball was was the worst offender of the three who were under house arrest in China (Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were the others).
