LaVar Ball pulls youngest son from high school

The LM1 shoes were revealed on Thursday despite La Melo Ball still holding two years of high school eligibility

LaVar Ball, the enthusiastic yet at-times abrasive father of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, is reportedly pulling his youngest son out of high school in order to homeschool and train him, as he continues to excel in the sport in his own right. "It's better for Melo to be pulled out of school, less distractions, focus is what he needed", LaVar said. Without me training those players at my house.

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

That's all the green light LaVar needs after already butting heads with the coaches at Chino Hills in the past.

LaMelo will continue to play for LaVar's AAU team, the Big Ballers, while finishing home school before heading off to UCLA.

LaMelo Ball is now ranked as the seventh-best player of his Class of 2019, the No. 1 player in the state and the second-best available player in the nation at his position - rankings which could quickly change if he is not enrolled to showcase his skill by the start of the season. Which could mean he could enter the 2020 NBA Draft having played only summer/AAU competition in the previous three seasons. 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.

But there's less pressure on UCLA to bend to LaVar's will now that there is a very realistic chance that LaMelo never plays college basketball. That's a level of national exposure the youngest Ball will miss sitting out two seasons while other top prospects, like Zion Williamson, Marvin Bagley and DeAndre Ayton, soak up the sunlight left by LaMelo's exit from the high school hoops scene.

"They'll have to sit back and wait", LaVar said.
