LaVar Ball's latest: Will home-school, home-train youngest son LaMelo

"I'm going to make him the best basketball player ever", LaVar Ball said, whose cut quite the cult figure for his bold statements on his sons. "He's on track for UCLA, but he doesn't have to be dealing with those knuckleheads".

The website lists him as a hard commit to UCLA, where his older brother Lonzo went before joining the National Basketball Association and his other brother LiAngelo now attends.

The father of Lakers' point guard Lonzo Ball and UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ball told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne "I'm not dealing with the coach over there".

LaVar told the Times in August that there was going "to be new drama" at Chino Hills because "I don't like him one bit", referring to Latimore.

Nokia is killing off its VR unit
Nokia said that Nokia Technologies will sharpen its focus on digital health and accelerate the company's growth in that market. The unit was one of three that Nokia retained following the sale of its handset business to Microsoft in 2013.

LaMelo, 16, and his time at Chino Hills Hill School in San Bernardino, California ended today (Oct. 3) with his dad pulling him out of the nationally-ranked high school.

LaVar Ball and Dennis Latimore, Chino Hill's new coach, are reported to have been having issues with one another.

The teen will no longer play for a high school team. Ok, y'all got all that going on, let's see how you do without my tutelage. I would never tell my own son, go work for a really bad company that makes awful PR decisions and personnel moves. Ironically enough, the only thing Latimore did to anger LaVar was say that LaMelo needed to stop shooting 50 shots-a-game, which, he frankly isn't in the wrong for demanding. "It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team".

LaMelo will be unable to discover how to fit his game into the structure of a team setting, with the exception of the very haphazard approach taken by his summer team, Big Ballers. Oh, how much money we would give to go back to high school and have LaVar Ball teach a class.
