LaVar Ball Is Pulling His Son LaMelo Ball Out Of High School

"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 am disappointed it couldn't have worked better for LaMelo and the players.

LaMelo Ball still aims to join UCLA one day, but he'll be training and schooling at home in the meantime.

LaVar has raised concerns about each of his sons' coaches during their stints in high school, and has been known to pull his team out of games entirely if he is displeased with the officiating, as he did earlier this summer at the Adidas Uprising Summer Tournament.

The latest move in Ball's many-step plan to take over the basketball world (with the help of his three sons, who actually play basketball) is the decision to homeschool his youngest progeny, LaMelo, for two years, while training him at the same time. He is, apparently, through with high school basketball, though. "It's good for Melo", the 48-year-old told the Los Angeles Times. "But you know he's got his own shoe, you know the NCAA don't like that, so they might be like, 'Hey, back up.'" I ain't got no problem backing up because we're still going to get to here, he's on deck, coming to the Lakers".

City captain Vincent Kompany is also some way off returning from injury, despite being named in Belgium's squad. Aguero took a photo with the singer and posted it to his Instagram account on Thursday, hours before the crash.

"I see him going to college, but we're going to see what goes on; his development and how everything goes, we'll see". "Less distractions. He just needs to focus".

Chino Hills coach Stephan Gilling was sacked after just one season on the job, and LaVar disputed reports that he was responsible for the coaching change.

With the Ball brothers in action, Chino Hills sold out games, competed for championships, and also went 35-0 a few years ago.

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