(Source-) LaVar Ball said Wednesday that he’s launching a basketball league for nationally ranked players who have graduated from high school but don’t want to go to college.
Ball said his Junior Basketball Association — which he said is fully funded by his Big Baller Brand — plans to pay the lowest-ranked player a salary of $3,000 a month and the best player $10,000 a month. Ball is looking for 80 players to fill 10 teams that will seek to play at NBA arenas in Los Angeles, Dallas, Brooklyn and Atlanta. “Getting these players is going to be easy,” Ball told ESPN. “This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.” Ball said the rules of his league will follow those of the NBA instead of college — 12-minute quarters and a pro 3-point line.
Big moves from Big Baller Brand and people who wear Big Baller Brand merchandise. What a week. First Vince McMahon said he may be bringing back the XFL. Then Lavar says he is creating the JBA. Well good news always comes in threes. Based on the success of our first Rough N Rowdy we are actively looking for famous people with grudges who want to headline Rough N Rowdy. We will pay at least 10K per fighter depending on how fake famous the person is. It could be more. It could be percentage of pay per view. These could be big pay days. So if you know people who need get in the ring and settle shit let me know. Rough N Rowdy, XFL, JBA….it’s a new sports world indeed.
