Lonzo Ball is second in the nation in assists. His little brothers, LiAngelo (Class of 2017 / scored 72 in a game last week) and LaMelo (Class of 2019, committed to UCLA when he was 13) are tearing it up at Chino Hills High School and headed to UCLA within the next few years. All three will be in the NBA a few months later according to their father, LaVar Ball. Via CBS Sports:
“All three of my boys are going to be one-and-done.”
Back in November, LaVar also predicted that UCLA would win the National Championship. UCLA hasn’t slowed down since then, improving to 11-0, including a win over then #1 Kentucky. Meanwhile, here are highlights from the latest little Balls high school game. That’s LaMelo pulling up from about two steps inside half-court on the first offensive possession of the game.
And people think Stephen Curry is a bad influence on the children. Not as long as it goes in, I say.
