Youngest Ball bids goodbye to high school

Youngest Ball bids goodbye to high school

LaVar Ball isn't a fan of Chino Hill High School's new basketball coach, but Notre Dame coach Mike Brey is. I am disappointed it couldn't have worked better for LaMelo and the players.

LaVar said LaMelo still intends to sign with UCLA. LaMelo is also the first high schooler with a signature shoe, which could impact his college eligibility.

LaMelo will be home schooled for the next two years, his father LaVar told Los Angeles Times high school reporter Eric Sondheimer on Monday. Instead, the Big Baller Brand head honcho will be working with his son on his own, in order to make him "the best basketball player ever". A more forgiving interpretation might call it the latest example of LaVar doing whatever it takes to get his son where they both want him to go. It seems like anybody whose training over here that coach don't want him in the team. Ironically enough, the only thing Latimore did to anger LaVar was say that LaMelo needed to stop shooting 50 shots-a-game, which, he frankly isn't in the wrong for demanding.

LaMelo is leaving Chino Hills after the school's basketball program brought in a new coach that family patriarch LaVar had some disagreements with.

Of course, LaVar didn't need to pull LaMelo entirely out of school just to get him away from a coach he didn't like.

Two years ago with all three in the Chino Hills fold, the Huskies went 35-0 and finished No. 1 in 10 national polls.

LaMelo is a 6-3 point guard ranked as a four-star prospect by Baik moved to Los Angeles Fairfax High last season; he said it was to cut down on the long commute from his home.

Whether or not LaVar is a good coach is not the question.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the elder Ball said, "I'm not dealing with the coach over there [at Chino Hills]".
