LaVar Ball’s $3B family sponsorship pitch isn’t looking too good after LaMelo’s latest game highlights…

I tried to avoid using this family’s name in a story at all costs, but this one was just too good to pass up.

LaMelo Ball, youngest son of LaVar Ball and younger brother of NBA Draft prospect Lonzo Ball, was featured in a new highlight tape that may end Big Baller Brand entirely.

LaMelo is currently listed as a consensus 5-star prospect in the class of 2019 with a firm commitment to UCLA, his only offer.

You may remember LaMelo for scoring 92 points in a single game on wide open layups (and not getting back on defense) several months back. At the time, he took over the social media world, and many thought he could eventually become the best Ball brother in the game.

After watching his latest game highlights, recruiting services may need to pump the breaks on the hype for this kid:

Down 25 points at halftime, good ole’ Coach LaVar gave his team quite the pep talk rocking a “Stay in Yo Lane” shirt…

The “Big Ballers” lost to the Compton Magic 109-57. 52 points.

A little rough when you play someone with half a lick of talent and have to play defense, eh?

LaVar Ball better hope Lonzo pans out, because his Dr. Evil-esque negotiation tactics with sponsors aren’t getting him anywhere…

    To be fair, LaMelo is a pretty good player. Pretty small kid, will hit a growth spurt and bulk up soon like his brothers. That team, Compton Magic is a nationally renowned team and Big Ballers are just a team made up of kids from Chino Hills. They were outmstched physically and talent wise. Honestly, it’s impressive they even took on the matchup.

    This post made me smh. Why? A 2019 kid had a bad game in AAU against one of the best teams in the nation. Seriously. I get it, the dad is a piece of work. But the kid is just playing basketball.

    LaMelo is a very, very over-rated player, who (like his brother) has absolutely no idea on the defensive end and has been putting up all of his lofty stats against D-level white boy talent in the suburbs…….This kid will get exposed every time he plays against true 4 and 5 star talent……He is quite literally a Brad Calipari level player……Shoot first think later balloon head……

    As much as we all hate Lavar this is dumb. The Compton magic are a national powerhouse and do this to like everyone. His team was already getting drilled or of the gate so who cares

    I get it let it rest. I’m tired of hearing about the big ballers too. Compton magics no joke. However, the balls spos’d to be good, allthat. For what the star ratings are, that don’t look like a five star baller…

    The only thing exceptional about this family is how weird they all look.

    Kind of sad foe adults to pick on a 16 year old kid for having a bad game against a great team. A little surprised Matt signed off on this article

    Lavar Ball is an idiot who wants to keep his family name in the media therefore his KIDS are fair game. I normally wouldn’t feel this way but TRUST ME…..he wouldn’t mind one bit putting your 7 year old on blast if the opportunity presented itself and it benefited him….

    Regardless of who they played Lamelo is garbage. That kid is the product of social media hype and news headlines. Yes, Compton is ranked so why try to run with those horses? BigBaller basketball is all hype and no substance. Their fundamentals are atrocious and it won’t translate to sucess in later basketball.
    They are hundreds of kids with more heart and talent but they won’t get a look bc idiots are stuck on Big Ballers.
