LaVar Ball is not a happy man these days. The egocentric sports dad, whose 3 sons are among the most talked-about athletes in sports, has run out of time.
Carron J. Phillips, a writer for the NY Daily News, reports that LaVar failed to sign one basketball prospect to his Junior Basketball Association (JBA).
LaVar had proposed to pay top high school prospects anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 to opt out of going to college and play for his league.
But according to a report by SB Nation, LaVar failed to recruit any of the top players in the 2018 class to join his league.
Additionally, it was announced that LaVar’s troubled middle son LiAngelo Ball would not be one of the 69 players invited to this week’s NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.
After pulling LiAngelo out of UCLA following the embarrassing shoplifting incident in China last year, LaVar took LiAngelo and youngest son LaMelo Ball to play for the low-level Lithuania league for three months.
LaVar also has serious problems off the court. The Better Business Bureau downgraded LaVar’s Big Baller Brand to an ‘F’ rating after fielding multiple complaints about his business practices.
The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about Big Baller Brand’s “unfulfilled and erroneous orders” after receiving 30 complaints.
Last week, Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones said it took a year to receive the $495 Big Baller Brand shoes that he purchased 12 months prior.
“I’m not one to complain, but these, um, just got here,” Jones said in a video to TMZ Sports. “I bought these a year ago. They just got here.”
