LaVar Ball Launched His JBA League to a Nearly Empty Arena

Thursday was a big day for the Ball family: LiAngelo hoped to hear his name called in the NBA Draft, and LaVar officially launched his new basketball league, the Junior Basketball Association. It appears neither event, however, went as LaVar would have hoped.

LiAngelo went undrafted—though it appears he has received a Summer League invitation from his brother’s team, the Lakers—and the JBA didn’t have much of an audience.

From the looks of it, several hundred fans attended the league debut at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario. The JBA used black curtains to cover empty seats in the upper decks.

  1. I see all these comments about helping Lavars league to "support the kids and help them get off the streets". You idiots should be sending money to reputable education projects and get better schools and shit in the ghetto. Not having these kids waste away in another of Lavars cash grabs. Shit, id rather buy a 100 dollars worth of jergens to jerk off with than put money in this shysters pocket

  2. love how the low class are defending this idiot. Lavar is trash. Always will be. Big mouth but nothing to back it up. Nothing but talk talk talk and then his "league" is a flop. then more talk talk talk. Just walk walk walk and shut that trap. In other words, prove it or lose it….anyone can talk.
