Over the weekend LaVar Ball announced that . LaVar Ball was asked by Olgun Uluc about LaMelo Ball's plans following this season for SPIRE with

“I’m going to let you know the plan know so everyone can just stop. With college, I already knew what they were about to do. ‘We’re going to investigate, we’re not going to let him play until we let him play, LaVar. We’re not going to let you do all that big mouth talking and then we’re going to hold him back and a whole year goes by.’ The G League … I’m not going to let no 28, 29-year-old dudes tee off on him.
