Not sure I like this precedent. He will be home schooled & according to dad 'become one of the best basketball players ever'. Kid will play on dad's traveling basketball team. LeMelo currently a junior at Chino Hills High.

I don't understand. How can UCLA accept someone that doesn't graduate high school? Clearly will be ineligible with the NCAA, right?

You get a high school equivalent diploma as long as the district approves the curriculum. Now grades & SAT are a different matter. Nonetheless it looks like one & done or international for a year is the goal. Too bad...high school provides the best memories & friends.

I don't even understand those AAU games. The highlights I have seen there is literally no defense by either team.

Besides black folk, does anyone really care about the Ball family? I doubt it. ESPN likes to pretend they do.

Home schooling is a fkn joke.

But the social part of school is what he is going to miss. What is the hurry to make him an adult

Also it looks like lavar is trying to make this one better than the other two. Especially lonzo who trashed the quality of the bbb shoe. Dad is out for the "look how great you could have been if you listened to me" to lonzo thru this one.

Just sad.

Why not say fk it and go play in europe right now. Aau is a waste of time and doesnt develop any understanding of basketball.

I watched Lonzo's game the other night. Same ol' Lonzo. Which means the same in store for Lomelo. They peak early because of all the games they play very little room for improvement.

Any chance their ages were manipulated?

Remember Danny Almonte.

He was a stud in Little League.

Only one problem...he was 14.

I remember when Carmelo Anthony asked LeBron James early in his NBA career, "How old are you, really?"

Oh, by the way, Danny Almonte is now 32.
