LaVar Ball Pulls LaMelo Ball Out Of High School To Train Him

0:42 | College Basketball         La Var Ball To Pull Son La Melo From School and Train Him

According to Sondheimer, LaMelo still plans on signing a letter of intent with the UCLA Bruins, though there's still the matter of whether his signature Melo Ball 1 sneaker with Big Baller Brand will impact his NCAA eligibility.

LaMelo is the youngest son of the Ball trio, a basketball family that has captivated and/or alienated the hoops world over the past year, depending on whom you ask.

LaVar grew so frustrated with new coach Dennis Latimore the past few months that on Monday he announced he will home school youngest son LaMelo rather than subject him to two more years playing for a coach he doesn't trust. He is, apparently, through with high school basketball, though. LaVar has threatened to have LaMelo skip college ball entirely and go play internationally before being draft-eligible. "Less distractions. He just needs to focus".

LaVar Ball has always had strong feelings about how the basketball careers of his sons should go, and in the case of Lonzo Ball becoming a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, he was correct about how it would go.

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. He made national headlines when he scored 92 points in a Baseline League game against Los Osos. They're good kids. If I knew this was going to be the result, I probably wouldn't have left.

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

It's actually quite a surprise that Chino Hills didn't consider LaVar for the head basketball coaching job after he drove the last coach out.

After the game, LaVar confronted the coach, demanding an explanation for his tactics. Gilling was sacked after the season, and LaVar continued to have issues with the new coach Dennis Latimore.
