LaVar Ball removing 16-year-old son LaMelo Ball from high school

LOS ANGELES -- LaVar Ball is pulling his 16-year-old son LaMelo out of his Southern California high school to be home schooled and so he can be made into "the best basketball player ever."

LaVar told The Los Angeles Times that LaMelo, a junior, will leave Chino Hills High School on Tuesday so he will have fewer distractions and better focus.

LaMelo is considered one of the nation's top high school recruits and has committed to play at UCLA, where his brother Lonzo played last season. Lonzo is now a rookie with the Los Angeles Lakers and their brother, LiAngelo, will be a freshman at UCLA.

LaMelo, who scored 92 points in a game for Chino Hills, will focus on playing for his father's travel team, Big Baller Brand.

LaVar has grabbed attention over the past year with exaggerated claims and headline-grabbing antics.
