I am disappointed it couldn't have worked better for LaMelo and the players. LaVar said his son still intends to join the UCLA.

LaMelo is the most-popular high school basketball player in the country, with more than 2 million followers on Instagram.

Class of 2019 5-star guard LaMelo Ball has been pulled from Chino Hills High School in California by his father, LaVar, and will now be homeschooled for the final two seasons of his high school career, according to Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times. He is, apparently, through with high school basketball, though.

When asked about LaMelo potentially being ineligible, LaVar basically said he didn't care.

We hope that is not the case, but like with everything surrounding LaVar Ball, you can never tell what happens next. His plans to go to UCLA still stand, but if LaMelo doesn't prosper on the National Basketball Association level, this move could come back to haunt him.

"I'm making him the best basketball player, ever", LaVar said in an interview with LA Times. It seems like anybody whose training over here that coach don't want him in the team.

Sandoval's homer came off of Phil Maton , and it might have cost the Giants the chance to pick first in next year's draft. Sandoval finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon, also knocking in a run in the second on a ground out.

Chino Hills hired Dennis Latimore as its new head coach in May, replacing Stephan Gilling, who was the head coach for one season. "Less distractions. He just needs to focus".

The 16-year-old Ball has had a whirlwind of a year, first grabbing headlines after dropping 92 points in a single game last season while with Chino Hills.

The junior scored 92 points in a game with his high school team a year ago, and now, Chino Hills' basketball team is the number four high school team in the nation.

After the game, LaVar confronted the coach, demanding an explanation for his tactics.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the elder Ball said, "I'm not dealing with the coach over there [at Chino Hills]".
