LaMelo will be trained and home-schooled by LaVar for the next two years.
LaMelo is considered one of the top high school recruits in the United States and has committed to play at UCLA, where his brother Lonzo played last season. His older brother is already a major name in the National Basketball Association, his dad is on TV all the time and his other brother is at UCLA as a freshman.
LaVar plans to home school LaMelo for the next two years, taking away one of the premier talents at the high school level and the lone reason Chino Hills' gym has been swarmed with fans during his games.
LaVar has grabbed attention over the past year with exaggerated claims and headline-grabbing antics.
Chino Hills is on to its third coach in as many years, and LaVar Ball had his concerns about leaving his youngest boy in the program according to a statement tweeted by ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne.More news: Chicago Police 'Aware' of Reports Vegas Gunman Booked Hotel During Lolla
A proud basketball dad, Ball was accused of undermining former Chino Hills coach Stephan Gilling, who was let go this past April, by "entering the locker room and offering instructions from the stands that contradicted what he had coached the team to do". The biggest of the big ballers has had enough with yet another high school coach. "It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team".
"It's good for Melo", his father said. LaMelo is the ranked as the 17th-best player in the country, fourth-best point guard and second-best California product in his 2019 class. "He said, 'all those 50 shots a game, that's going to stop.' So I'm like, 'Wow, '" LaVar said.
The next time everyone gets to see LaMelo play again is in the next spring ball.
"They're going to come to the house and train with me anyways", LaMelo said.
