Lavar Ball’s creative juices are flowing and he wants to start a brand new league. It would be called “The Junior Basketball Association.” and it would cater to high school prospect who wanna skip college. It will also pay well, a baller can earn up to $10K a month.



According to TheJasmineBrand, Ball said in a statement, “We have officially launched our own pro basketball league called the “Junior Basketball Association,” sponsored by Big Baller Brand. The JBA is the very first junior pro basketball league of its kind. The JBA will cater to the top ranked high school basketball prospects in America. All nationally ranked high school seniors, whose main goal are to reach the NBA, will be offered an opportunity to join the JBA, turning pro straight out of high school and bypassing the usual college pit stop. The participating players will be paid up to $10,000 per month, as they prepare to enter the NBA Draft the following year. The JBA league is for basketball players who intend to pursue the sport professionally. With the introduction of the JBA, allowing the NCAA to regulate and control the eligibility status of top basketball prospects will no longer be an issue. There is no need to partake in an institution that claims its purpose is not to help you prepare for your professional career.”

His son LaMelo would be in the league as well. Do you think it would work?
