The high school basketball career of LaMelo Ball is over.
The 16-year-old junior at Chino Hills will be home-schooled and not play for any team, his father, LaVar Ball, said Monday in a phone call.
“I’m going to make him the best basketball player ever,” LaVar said.
He intends to check him out on Tuesday.
LaMelo scored 92 points for Chino Hills in a game last season. Brother Lonzo is the Lakers’ new point guard and brother LiAngelo will be a freshman at UCLA.
LaVar had already been having concerns about Chino Hills’ new coach, Dennis Latimore.
Well, LaVar Ball just dropped another bombshell in what has been a wild ride in the Ball Family Saga. LaMelo Ball not playing the rest of his career at Chino Hills looks like LaVar’s best idea yet.
What does LaMelo gain from two years at Chino Hills? Absolutely nothing. Sure, he would score a shit ton of points, but people forget how bad the competition was at Chino. He won’t get any better playing a run & gun system against a bunch of schmucks.
LaMelo Ball has some significant holes in his game, one of those glaring deficiencies is defense. Melo is going to have 10 hours a day to shuffle his feet now. I can’t wait to see this, but there will be idiots that think he will be isolated from school. Melo will do his homeschool work, and then ball the rest of the day.
That’s why Leonard Fournette, and Christian McCaffrey skipped their useless college bowl games. They would be risking shit for nothing, stuck in the mud. They are built for bigger and better things. Also, what would be the point of LaMelo Ball transferring to a powerhouse like Mater Dei? Would have only a month to adjust to a new system.
LaVar is already a great trainer, his work ethic is bonkers. If you had the chance, just watch their show “Ball In The Family” on Facebook. LaVar was the only person to rehab his wife from a stroke and she is thriving already. LaMelo now has two YEARS to train for his UCLA career. LaMelo Ball, a 5 STAR recruit has a two year head start over his classmates to play college hoops. Don’t be worried about Ball, he is going to be a star.
