LaMelo Ball to skip last two years of high school basketball

As he watches LaVar Ball wage a public power struggle with Chino Hills High School over control of its basketball program, UCLA coach Steve Alford should be pondering one pressing question.

Will he then get housed when he plays real games? "(LaMelo)'s on track for UCLA, but he doesn't have to be dealing with those knuckleheads. Now, the high school is set to lose a lot of followers and publicity due to LaMelo's departure.

Only a few weeks into the beginning of the academic year, LaVar Ball has chosen to pull his youngest son, LaMelo Ball, out of Chino Hills High School, according to Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times.

LaMelo's leaving will surely have significant effects on Southern Californian basketball, let alone Chino Hills.

LaVar also spoke about something that could potentially impact LaMelo's college athletics eligibility: the release of the high school baller's signature shoe with the family-owned-and-operated Big Baller Brand, the Melo Ball 1 (also referred to by the brand as the MB1).

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. "So they can't stop me by saying, 'OK, he's not going to the NCAA.' Who cares?"

LaVar went on to claim that through his coaching and training, LaMelo will become "the best basketball player ever".

Chino Hills has cycled through three basketball coaches in three years because of LaVar's meddling despite producing a 65-3 record the past two seasons. "Less distractions. He just needs to focus".

After the game, LaVar confronted the coach, demanding an explanation for his tactics. The elder Ball "had already been having concerns about" Dennis Lattmore, the new coach, according to the Times.
