The LaVar Ball circus returns to the Bluegrass this weekend, but if you want to film any of LaMelo’s games, you’re going to have to fork over some major money.
LaMelo’s SPIRE Institute is participating in the “Big Baller Beatdown” showcase Saturday and Sunday in Marshall County and according to Adam Zagoria, the Big Baller Brand is requiring video outlets to pay $3,500 to film SPIRE’s games:

LaMelo’s chances of being eligible to play college basketball seemed shaky at best after his stint in Lithuania, but there’s no way it happens now that his dad is profiting directly off his games, right?
Adding to the madness in Marshall County will be Zion Harmon’s debut for Bella Vista Prep. According to Larry Vaught, Harmon has been cleared to play for the Arizona prep school even though he’s still enrolled at Marshall County:
Just got it confirmed. Zion Harmon will be playing for Bella Vista Prep out of Arizona Friday night at Marshall County against Life Christian. Tipoff about 8:30 p.m. CST. Story to follow in a bit. @zion_harmon will remain in school at Marshall County@thegrindsession
