Youngest Ball bids goodbye to high school

Frederick Owens

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, LaVar told the paper that he will be pulling LaMelo out of his high school at Chino Hills (Calif.) and will train him for the next two seasons. Ball expanded on his reservations about the coach in a conversation with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage.

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.

Will he then get housed when he plays real games?

LaMelo is the most-popular high school basketball player in the country, with more than 2 million followers on Instagram.

All this seems a bit fitting for Chino Hills, which reacted to LaVar's ludicrous public criticism of previous coach Stephan Gillig as he led the program to a 30-3 record in 2016-17 by opening the position, meaning Chino will have its third coach in three years despite extraordinary recent success.

Sean Lee didn't practice again, questionable for Sunday
If you're tuning in for the Rams' Week 4 contest against the Dallas Cowboys , you'll probably notice that something is ... off. Though giving up 42 points to Denver in Week 1 wasn't pretty, the Dallas defense has taking meaningful steps since past year .

The move delivers a crushing blow to the Chino Hills team, but LaVar is only focused on his son's future.

LaVar Ball announced this evening some "stunning" news for his youngest son, LaMelo Ball.

Could this be a good idea?

But there's less pressure on UCLA to bend to LaVar's will now that there is a very realistic chance that LaMelo never plays college basketball. Does he teach him himself or hire an at-home teacher? How will the National Basketball Association view a prospect who never completed high school but isn't an worldwide player? " This is an insane antic, but we now expect decisions like this from LaVar".

What's his report card going to look like?
