LaVar Ball says he's going to home school his son LaMelo

LONG BEACH CA- MAY 06 La Melo Ball headed to UCLA looks on with his brother Lonzo and dad Lavar during the 2017 Ballislife All American game

Even by his own standards of outlandish acts, LaVar Ball - the father of Lakers rookie Lonzo and UCLA pledge LaMelo - has one-upped himself.

After the season, Chino Hills went looking for a new coach and hired Dennis Latimore, a native of Kansas who played two seasons at Arizona and one at Notre Dame.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the elder Ball said, "I'm not dealing with the coach over there [at Chino Hills]".

LaVar's aim in making his son as a stud player in college and as a future National Basketball Association star had a significant influence in his decision. "It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team". "He's on track for UCLA, but he doesn't have to be dealing with those knuckleheads". You can put that on the principal and the coach over there.

Will he then get housed when he plays real games?

This really isn't all that surprising, given the direction the senior Ball has had his son running towards the past year or so. A more forgiving interpretation might call it the latest example of LaVar doing whatever it takes to get his son where they both want him to go.

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.

While LaMelo will still have the opportunity to play AAU ball with Big Baller Brand, removing him from the high school circuit altogether is a surprising move.

LaVar has raised concerns about each of his sons' coaches during their stints in high school, and has been known to pull his team out of games entirely if he is displeased with the officiating, as he did earlier this summer at the Adidas Uprising Summer Tournament.
