LaVar Ball Will Try To Start New Basketball League


LaVar Ball has business plans beyond trolling Nas.

The basketball dad is in talks to start a  junior league for highly ranked high school graduates who don't want to play college basketball.

JBA (Junior Basketball Association) players will be paid between $3,000 and $10,000 a month. Ball wants to recruit 80 players for ten teams -- which will play in NBA arenas and under NBA rules.

"Getting these players is going to be easy," Ball told ESPN. "This is giving guys a chance to get a jumpstart on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we're going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids. 

"Those 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," Ball continued.

Speaking of jerseys, all players in the JBA will be required to wear Big Baller Brand uniforms and shoes.

Do you think this is going to work.?

Or do you think this is all a harebrained scheme to get LaMelo and LiAngelo out of making near-minimum wage in Lithuania?
