LaVar Ball says he's going to home school his son LaMelo

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

LaVar Ball said Monday he plans to remove son LaMelo from Chino Hills High School in Chino Hills, California, and homeschool him for the next two years, the Los Angeles Times' Eric Sondheimer reported. In an interview with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, LaVar referred to Latimore and Chino staffers as "those knuckleheads" and said he didn't want them to "mess with (LaMelo's) head". Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage.

Latimore, a 6-foot-9, 238-pound forward, played two years at Arizona (2000-2003) before transferring and finishing his career under Brey at Notre Dame.

The move delivers a crushing blow to the Chino Hills team, but LaVar is only focused on his son's future.

LaVar's latest decision, to lift LaMelo from the high school where he has starred, is shocking in that it's rare and counter-intuitive but also predictable in that LaVar's chief goal for his sons seems to be National Basketball Association stardom, and you don't need to know trigonometry or European history to make an All-Star Game.

Pulling LaMelo will also rob him of organized competition, but it's a safe bet LaVar has something up his sleeve to keep his son in game shape. 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.

So who knows if LaMelo will actually make it to Westwood and follow in his older brothers' footsteps, Lonzo Ball and LiAngelo Ball.

Could this be a good idea?

LaMelo, a UCLA pledge who turned 16 in August, is a five-star prospect ranked as the No. 17 player in the Class of 2019 according to 247Sports. Does he teach him himself or hire an at-home teacher? "Who cares? If he can't play, then he can't play".

What's his report card going to look like?
