LaVar Ball Announces He's Pulling LaMelo Ball From His High School


When asked about LaMelo potentially being ineligible, LaVar basically said he didn't care. The outspoken father said he would home-school LaMelo for the next two years to keep him focused and away from the distractions created by his newfound status as a celebrity. "You can put that on the principal and the coach over there", he said in a statement to's Ramona Shelburne. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore. There is no rhyme or reason to what LaVar will do with his sons, and at this point, doubt is growing that the youngest Ball will ever play for UCLA.

LaVar will take over LaMelo's training, telling Sondheimer he's "going to make him the best basketball player ever". After his second preseason game, Lonzo's continuous development was overwhelming but Luke Walton, the Lakers' coach, still wants him to show more aggressiveness and selfishness.

In the spring, Chino Hills hired Dennis Latimore as its third head coach in three seasons.

"That coach has his own frame of mind on how he wants to play and who he picks in the team". Without me training those players at my house.

Chino Hills' former Coach Steve Baik helped the school to its 35-0 record on a previous season before leaving for Fairfax. But if this does actually happen it won't have much impact on LaMelo's future as he already verbally committed to UCLA for the 2019 class and, as LaVar told the L.A. Times, he still intends to sign with the Bruins.

Chino Hills was the fourth-ranked team in the nation and No. 2 team in California last season when LaMelo and his brother, LiAngelo, led them to a 30-3 record last season. He played briefly in Europe before beginning a career of mentoring and coaching youth. " This is an insane antic, but we now expect decisions like this from LaVar".
