LaVar Ball's latest: Will home-school, home-train youngest son LaMelo

LaMelo said he's not anxious about missing out on traditional high school life and not going to school with his friends.

LaMelo will be home schooled for the next two years, his father LaVar told Los Angeles Times high school reporter Eric Sondheimer on Monday. "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". LaVar said his son still intends to join the UCLA. 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. "Less distractions. He just needs to focus".

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

"I'm going to make him the best basketball player ever", Ball told the Times. He made national headlines when he scored 92 points in a Baseline League game against Los Osos.

The two of them worked at the Henry County Medical Center in Paris, Tennessee, he as a nurse, she as an orthopedic surgeon. Romero-Muniz, a grandmother, worked as a discipline secretary at Hiroshi Miyamura High School in Gallup, N.M.

"It's a new coach and I don't like him one bit. I didn't foresee this happening", Baik said.

As detailed in a For The Win article by Andrew Joseph, LaVar on at least one occasion last season publicly contradicted Gillig's strategy by shouting different orders from the stands - orders the players often followed, given that sons LaMelo and LiAngelo were on the team. Would it surprise anyone if LaVar uses his massive fame to publicly question Alford the same way he has the Chino Hills coaches? Ball then entered the team's locker room against Gillig's wishes.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelbourne, however, LaVar is effectively ending LaMelo's high school career because of a difference of opinion with Chino Hills' new coach Dennis Latimore.
