LaVar Ball Says LaMelo Is The Most ‘Notable’ High School B-Ball Player Ever; Better Than LeBron, Jordan
For much if 2018, LaVar Ball seemed to take a backseat to his hot takes that he had been spewing on a weekly basis on every network that would invite him on.
On Friday, the CEO of Big Baller Brand was present for an introductory press conference for his youngest son LaMelo Ball to be reintroduced to the United States high school basketball scene, joining the prep squad at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
Per usual, LaVar was in a talkative mood and stated how LaMelo is a rockstar in the high school scene.
“He’s the most entertaining, most notable high school player ever,” Ball said. “People say that he’s better than LeBron, [Michael] Jordan — anybody.”
“Nobody knew LeBron when he was in high school in London. In Germany. In Latvia. In Lithuania,” the patriarch of the Ball family said with his signature enthusiasm. “The social media wasn’t like that. Melo was in the social media era where it blows everything up to astronomical proportions.”
This is how Lamelo was welcomed to Northeast Ohio:

“We got the guy who can make the blind see and the crippled walk in LaMelo Ball,” said SPIRE head coach Jermaine Jackson. “Like Magic Johnson said in the 80s, don’t look down at your popcorn because you might miss something. It’s showtime baby.”
