    Absolutely no f’ing way Cal even thinks about that. He hates how parents wont stay out of the process.

  2. davis2319

    Sign him who cares. Duke gets everyone else anyways

    1. ClutchCargo

      No. Just no. He sucks, and his loudmouth dad is the only reason we have ever heard of him.

  3. Kat4Life

    He sucks. By far the worst of the three. He may not receive a single D1 offer

    1. JusSayin

      I’m not a fan… but according to most scouts, he was 5 star talent. Much better than the thief Gelo.

    2. StuckinLville

      He was a top 15 player. The middle one is the worst.

      Just like Zion was so fat and couldn’t shoot. Alot of Kentucky Fans and “sports reporters” always have it figured out before everyone else…. The KID is still growing and has pretty good size and his leaping ability and strength are climbing as well. I wouldn’t necessarily throw this out the window just yet, due to fans hatred towards Lavar Ball. One of the reasons UK fans dont like Lavar is because of his antics when his son was at UCLA. Who cares, the guy is just a dad thats promoting his sons, to me he is definitely getting what he wants. People get so caught up in the mess, they dont even see the clear picture, Lavar Ball and the rest of the ball Brothers are the ones laughing. They’re getting what they want by manipulation of the media, and its working. If he is eligible and wants to play at UK, I say bring him on. Go against the grain and to be honest, alot of white people dont want to see a black man be outspoken and successful, I think thats the biggest take away when it comes to Lavar, and im white.

      Not caring for Lab at Ball has nothing to do with race, at least not for me. I have trouble respecting bloviating, disrespectful people.

      You’re an idiot Shagaris. LaVar is not just a loving father. He is trying like hell to make money off his sons and live vicariously through them for what he never could have, a basketball career. You think pulling your son out of school when he was suspended for stealing is good parenting? You think pulling your youngest son out of high school and taking him overseas is what was best for his career? No it wasnt. LaVar is about LaVar.


      I’m black an I agree 100%! I tell ppl this ALL the time about LaVar

    8. Blue Bill

      And you are an idiot.

    9. Matt10

      A lot of white people, what?! That’s the dumbest BS. I wouldn’t care if LaVar was white, yellow, brown or green, he’s still painfully, embarrassingly obnoxious.

    10. Shagaris Sock Puppet

      Exactly, thats you not others. I said alot of white people and I am right, alot of white people does not include all. There are people out there that do not like what he does, but if it was a white man wanting change and creating the JBA or promoting his kids, hes a saint, btw the NBA stole his idea and is using it lol a bunch of rich white men using a black mans idea and profiting off it. Id say the guy is pretty smart, he just comes off as this arrogant character.

    11. ibescootch

      There’s actually a pretty well known white guy that does this exact thing. He treats his players like sons, and promotes them constantly, sometimes at the expense of the university. He’s creative in getting them exposure. He’s about as confident as they come, and he’s gotten pretty wealthy from having such good players. Hmmm, who could it be? My point is, it’s not racially motivated. People hate when others change the narrative, and Lavar is just REALLY obnoxious about it.

    12. World Wide Wes

      Wonder what sandy bell thinks?

    13. ukcamel

      The race card for LaVar Ball is just a bridge too far. Who’s next? Bill Cosby or Rae Carruth?

    14. J-Dub421

      Lavar Ball is the A-Hole who wouldn’t let his sons go visit their mother (his wife) in the hospital after she had a stroke. Then he was a total A-Hole to her while she was recovering and undergoing physical therapy afterwards. That tells me all I need to know about Lavar Ball; he is a terrible person.

  4. Travisc

    would he even be allowed? Did he get paid to play over seas?

    1. JusSayin

      He didn’t take a salary apparently. A lot of the younger prospects in those leagues don’t get paid.

  5. az1006

    How would he even be eligible? He’s played “professionally” overseas and in that ridiculous JBA. Can’t see him being cleared by the NCAA. Regardless, I don’t think there’s a blue-blood coach in America that would sign him, I don’t care how good he is (he isn’t).

  6. nybrasky

    Surely Lavar and LaMelo know that he’s not even eligible, but they also know they have to say stiffness like that to get press coverage and attempt to stay relevant.

  7. Cmart0907

    He couldn’t if he wanted too lol. He already signed a pro contract. His dad ruined his career

  8. bpisforuk

    No,nope,no thanks, move on, adios

  9. Wade

    Cal won’t

  10. Realme

    That’s gross. Be funny to see our fan base react to him being recruited though.


    Why not sign him?

    1. Snapper42

      Why not? Because it’s a package deal; LaMelo AND Lavar.

    2. jaws2

      A PERFECT fit for oOFsmell!!! Pleas take him and bring on the popcorn!!!

  12. Han

    A lot of people here don’t understand that you can play for a pro team overseas as long as you don’t actually take the salary. Kanter did and what made him ineligible was the money given for his schooling went to his parents first instead of the school.

    That said, he probably took the money because their family is stupid. Also, why would any school take him when his father pulled his brother out of school (after the theft in China) and pulled him out of high school to go play overseas. The first time LaVar decides he isn’t playing enough, he leaves, hurting your APR. Also, LaVar will be a huge pain in the butt PR-wise, just like he was at UCLA.

    Any lower-level coach who takes him deserves the headaches they’ll get.

  13. ClutchCargo

    You think there is any way LaVar dragged his kid all the way to Lithuania to play for free? Me neither. Regardless, he’s not even good enough to be worth it the 3 ring circus. And he’s half LaVar, so let that sink in for a minute. Pretty much the exact opposite of a Cal recruit.

    1. Bluebloodtoo

      Of course he didn’t pay for free, but i completely believe that his dad took all the money.

  14. StuckinLville

    I dont want to look at that hair. He’s a punk anyway, look how he slapped that dude on the court.

  15. Alleykat16

    Well I’ve been thinking what was going to be next with the basketBall family it’s been kinda quiet no arrests, no pro ball over seas, JBA not hearing much from that. So now Lamelo wants to go back to school get his diploma and play college ball. Wonder how long it took them to think this one up. I know Cal does some crazy stuff, but there’s no way he will play 1 sec of ball for any major college. Now he might play at Louisville but he’s not playing at UK.

  16. Bluebloodtoo

    I think there is about a .00001% chance that any of the Ball kids get a scholarship from a major program.

    1. FlySoup

      There’s only 1 left who is still in high school… unless you’re referring to all three of them when you say “any of the ball kids”? In which case the 2 older ones already recieved scholarship opportunities from UCLA which is in my opinion a “major program.” So what was your point again?

  17. J-Dub421

    That’s a whole big bag of NO for me. Also, Lavar pulled LaMelo from his high school team because the coach wouldn’t let him shoot it 50+ times per game, so there’s exactly ZERO chance Cal would ever recruit him.

  18. Jiminy Crickets

    Oh a ball hog Ball with a loud mouth dad, with eligibility concerns and he’s not that good?? Oh yea I’m sure the big boy schools are lining up for that

  19. Booher

    How can he even play high school or college basketball?

    1. Irish son

      Guarantee you’re a racist POS

    2. bigbluebanana

      Did you mean to reply to this guy? Or the comment below? Lol

  20. ukcats1776.90

    white women like tyler Thompson overwhelmingly voteRepublican. thus, KSR, by employing a white woman, is a racist, hate-mongerer (because anyone who votes Republican is racist and full of hate) anybody who hates racism must boycott KSR until the racists is charge refuse to employ white people

    1. Snapper42


  21. Matt10

    I love that Homer gif. Used it a few times myself. Perfect for what I guarantee Cal would do in this case.

  22. Snapper42

    I take that back if you’re trying to be sarcastic. If so, sarcasm doesn’t translate well in printed word. Just sayin…

  23. Zissou87

    Cal constantly talks about recruiting high character kids and promising them 30+ shots a night. Tony Barbee and Kenny Payne are probably in Chino Hills now.

  24. Beavis

    My day was not going well until I read this crap. I will be laughing well into the night. Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom

  25. kydrummer

    No thanks, we good!

  26. CoachCat

    Like that would ever happen

  27. natertatter

    no but hell no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Irish son

    Sign him up Cal! He has to be better than any guards we have. I bet he wouldn’t come to play Duke and piss down his leg like our guards did

    1. bigbluebanana

      Don’t cut yourself in that edge there dude

  29. Shively1978

    He didn’t just say Kentucky. He’d probably pick Duke anyway.

  30. Blue Bill

    Don’t care if he’s better than lebron. Not a snowballs chance in hell.

  31. henderblue

    I hear what you’re saying Lavar. But no, take him somewhere else…

    1. henderblue

      Comment meant for Shagaris Sock Pup…aka Lavar

  32. KYjellyRoll

    Cal could turn him into a great person and player no doubt in my mind. But, no, please

  33. World Wide Wes

    I actually feel bad for the boys…

  34. Memphiscat95

    He would probably be one of the more skilled guards we’ve had here in a while

  35. sportsbird66

    LeMelo……LeNo,but at this point,what could it hurt? Just kidding

  36. Racerr11

    Lavar Ball outspoken, absolutely. Lavar Ball successful, lol. So you can throw the white men don’t like a successful black man out the window. That’s nothing but an excuse not a reason.


    I’d love to see Lamelo Ball come to UK….just so I could see him sit on the bench.
