Written by rickyramon on December 24, 2017
LaVar Ball is switching up the basketball game! LaVar is starting a basketball league for high school graduates that are looking for a place to get paid to play basketball other than college.
According to ESPN, It would be called the Junior Basketball Association and it will pay the players a salary of $3,000-$10,000 a month. The goal is to land 80 players, put them on 10 different teams and play in NBA arenas in Los Angeles, Dallas, Brooklyn and Atlanta. The catch is that the league would be sponsored by Big Baller Brand, meaning that all of the kids participating would be wearing BBB shoes, BBB jerseys, BBB warmups, BBB everything.
