LaVar Ball announces he's starting his own basketball league

LaVar Ball's Junior Basketball Association will give a chance to players who graduate from high school to play instead of going to college is actually a pretty good idea.

"The JBA will cater to the top ranked high school basketball prospects in America", Ball said in a statement (via SLAM).

"Getting these players is going to be easy", Ball told ESPN.

Ball said he wants to assemble ten teams in cities such as Los Angeles, Dallas, Brooklyn, and Atlanta.

There's no telling what could've happened to Lonzo Ball had the chain of events been different.

Ball said Emmert was right because "kids who are one and done, they shouldn't be there with the NCAA trying to hold them hostage, not allowing them to keep the jersey they wear while selling replicas of them in stores". So our guy isn't going to go to Florida State for a year. Black and gold, it features the silhouette of his son, Lonzo Ball (currently a L.A. Lakers player), making a dunk. Can they pull it off this time as they travel to the Bay Area to play against the Dubs on Friday?

LaMelo, however, could presumably play in the JBA at a later point, assuming the league gets off the ground.

With momentum gathering to reshape the one-and-done draft entry rule, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA executive director Michele Roberts met with the new Commission on College Basketball in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, league sources told ESPN. LaVar said in a video posted to social media. One has to assume that any player who is at least 18 and truly on an National Basketball Association track might prefer the higher salary and the higher quality of coaching they are likely to receive in the G League. "Gonna be one of the most exciting ever!"

After turning his Big Baller Brand into a household name, LaVar Ball is now reportedly planning his next business venture - his own basketball league.
