This guy's Wikipedia page is ridiculous. He spent so much time writing it, you can tell.

He has four Li-brothers himself. Who knew there were so many L names?


George Foreman syndrome is real

I'm accepting it but reports that he wasn't sold were true. I shouldn't have been definitive about them passing on him. That was obviously wrong.

Shakes says that he will be a stud. No way in hell with that game. Let's see if he takes the L as graciously as I have.

He didn't on the Westbrook stuff.

How exactly did I lose on the Westbrook stuff? I said he wasn't a reach at #4 and then linked to the best websites out there for NBA draft where they had him ranked top 4 pre draft. How is that losing?

Nice try at deflecting though.

I provided the post draft analysis. They all agreed that he was a reach. I remember reading the mocks which listed him at 4 too. It shocked me at the time because he backed up Collison.

LAS VEGAS -- LaVar Ball threatened to pull his Big Baller Brand AAU team off the court on Friday morning after receiving a technical foul, eventually leading to the female referee being replaced mid-game.

"She's got a vendetta," Ball told ESPN after the game.

"She needs to stay in her lane because she ain't ready for this," he added.

The referee declined comment on what happened.

Adidas said it was their decision to replace the referee.

"There was some miscommunication," said Chris Rivers, Adidas Director of Global Basketball Sports Marketing.

Ball was given a technical foul in the first half of Big Ballers' game against Team BBC at the Adidas Summer Championships. He pointed to the official and yelled, "We need to get someone else in here."

Minutes later, Ball looked at his team and said "Let's go." The players began to pick up their bags and walk off the court.

After a long delay in which coaches from the two teams, along with representatives from Adidas and the referees, met on the court, the game resumed -- with a different official.

It's unfortunate that this guy is the new go to sports ratings thing. He and his boys are literally the kardashians of sports. They will be 24/7 news forever now.

I saw someone on another site say that the Lakers should've put a "no dating or interacting with any Kardashians" clause in Lonzo's contract :lol:

He will be seen as a genius or complete fucking idiot and either way I am enjoying the journey. He has already declared the middle son will be one and done and that kid may not even start at UCLA.

Dan Gartland

LaMelo Ball is done playing high school basketball, his father LaVar says.

The youngest Ball will be home-schooled instead of attending Chino Hills High School for two more years and won’t play on the school’s basketball team, LaVar told Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times. His father intends to train him personally.

“I’m going to make him the best basketball player ever,” Ball told the Times.

Chino Hills coach Stephan Gilling was fired after just one season on the job, and LaVar disputed reports that he was responsible for the coaching change. The elder Ball “had already been having concerns about” Dennis Lattmore, the new coach, according to the Times. Ball expanded on his reservations about the coach in a conversation with ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

It’s also possible that the decision to pull Ball from high school competition wasn’t entirely voluntary. LaVar’s Big Baller Brand announced a signature shoe for LaMelo last month, calling into question his amateur status.

LaMelo, like his brothers Lonzo and LiAngelo, has committed to play at UCLA. He will continue to play for LaVar’s AAU team.

LaMelo and LiAngelo helped lead Chino Hills to a 30–3 record last season and LaMelo turned heads with a 92-point effort on 61 shots in a game in February.

Something is going on behind the scenes with LaMelo would be my first guess here.

The Ball wall is starting to crumble.

They were likely going to be declared ineligible because the dad is a moron.

I thought that was if he were profiting from the shoe in college? Idk the exact rule, but I think it's ok to profit from it in high school.

Lavar Ball is a great American. I'm almost postive he cares more about his sons than Nike, the NCAA, or the NBA do.

What exactly are the NCAA rules when you yourself are an owner (or part owner) of a company? Let's say you have a small business while you are in college, can you not profit off of your own work as a student-athlete? Does NCAA ban you from having a job? I don't see how they could do that.

He can profit from his business but not his likeness. He has to wear Groucho glasses in any marketing material.

If the business is related to his athletic performance then you can't.

His business is related to shoes, not athletic performance.
