LaVar Ball says he'll pull LaMelo from school, cites coach, administrators

LaVar Ball pulling La Melo from Chino Hills'I'm not dealing with the coach over there

LaVar Ball isn't a fan of Chino Hill High School's new basketball coach, but Notre Dame coach Mike Brey is.

LaVar Ball, the father of Lakers rookie Lonzo and UCLA freshman LiAngelo, announced a major decision in the basketball development of his youngest son, LaMelo.

LaVar will take over LaMelo's training, telling Sondheimer he's "going to make him the best basketball player ever". Gilling was sacked after the season, and LaVar continued to have issues with the new coach Dennis Latimore.

"I'm not dealing with the coach over there", Ball said, via Shelburne. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore. Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage. It seems like anybody whose training over here that coach don't want him in the team. I am disappointed it couldn't have worked better for LaMelo and the players.

The decision to pull LaMelo out of high school was one that seemingly revolved around basketball and molding him into a stud college player and future NBA prospect.

Even if the teenager is deemed eligible, possibly after the company temporarily shelves his shoe, there will be questions about his skill level and ability to fit into college-level team concepts, assuming he only plays for his travel team and in summer showcases for the next two years. "So they can't stop me by saying, 'OK, he's not going to the NCAA.' Who cares?"

LaMelo Ball is, by nearly any measure, the most famous non-professional basketball player in the world today and the soap opera surrounding his development continued on Monday.

Like his brothers, LaMelo has a commitment to UCLA.

LaMelo, 16, and his time at Chino Hills Hill School in San Bernardino, California ended today (Oct. 3) with his dad pulling him out of the nationally-ranked high school.
