    Default Lavar Ball is going to start a new basketball league

    Aimed at kids who don't want to go to college, the Junior Basketball Association is going to be funded by the Big Baller Brand. Kids will need to agree to wear the BBB shoes/apparel. Lavar says he will pay kids between $3k and $10k a month, which on average is more than NBA G league players make.

    LaVar, according to the report, is planning to pay the “lowest-ranked” player $3,000, and the “best player” $10,000 a month which, if paid out like a G-League salary, would be more than the average G-Leaguer earns. I’m not saying one should question the validity of any claim made by a man who once said he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one in his prime, I’m just saying that up to $10K a month could mean anything from $1,000 a month to a cameo on the Ball family’s Facebook show.

    As nutty as Lavar Ball is (and he is plenty nutty), this is not a terrible idea, IMO. Even if it doesn't work, it might spur the NCAA into being more reasonable about college players earning money.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    It would be a shame if someone as stupid as Lavar Ball brought about the end of college basketball.

    That wont happen. But he might make the NCAA be a bit more reasonable with respect to the kids in college and their compensation.

    I would sell all of my assets to see LaVar and Trump fight to the death. Two assholes enter. The other is shot exiting the cage.
