LaVar Ball stated that he will begin a basketball league for high school players who do not want to go to college. He’s stated he is going to pay them between $3,000 to $10,000 a month and allow players to focus on preparing for their pro careers. This is an amazing thing. I do believe LaVar Ball is the right person to be in charge of it. Changing the NCAA’s stranglehold on elite basketball for kids not-yet-eligible for the NBA is difficult and probably impossible work; a reasonable person wouldn’t take this step. And so, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, we have Ball aiming to recruit 80 players for 10 teams (the math is a bit sketchy there) to play in NBA arenas by NBA rules. Players will focus purely on honing their skills, all day and every day.
