LaVar Ball’s next venture may be creating his own league as he’s rumored to be willing to pay big bucks to top talent.
LaVar Ball does it all–at least he wants to. The Big Baller’s latest move is trying to start his own basketball league for top-tier players as an alternative to college. Ball announced he’s founding the Junior Basketball Association where he plans to pay anywhere from 3k-10k per month to players who join.
The league would be sponsored by Big Baller Brand, of course, and Ball is looking to tip things off in the summer of 2018 with the youngest Ball brother, LaMelo, set to join.
Here’s what LaVar had to say on his latest Big Baller move:
“All nationally ranked high school seniors, whose main goal are to reach the NBA, will be offered an opportunity to join the JBA, turning pro straight out of high school and bypassing the usual college pit stop. The participating players will be paid up to $10,000 per month, as they prepare to enter the NBA Draft the following year.”
We’ll see how this plays out, but so far what LaVar wants he gets. Running a league won’t be easy and the finances will be hard to maintain if he’s going to pay his players the numbers he threw out. But if LaVar is a true Big Baller he’ll speak it into existence.
