LaVar Ball predicted son LaMelo would score 40-50 points against Zion Williamson

LaMelo Ball

LaVar Ball had Big Baller aspirations for his son LaMelo Ball, expecting him to score between 40 and 50 points against No. 2 high school senior prospect Zion Williamson and his AAU team SC Supreme.

“I don’t know man, 40? 50?,” Ball told Overtime about a potentially epic night for his son. “He just gonna put it down, he’s trying to get that win.”

LaMelo fell short, but still impressed with a game-high 31 points and eight assists in a 104-92 loss in the Adidas Uprising Summer Championship game, hitting 11 of his 15 field goals while playing the entire game.

While dropping a 40, or a 50-bomb in a championship game is no easy task, let’s remember it wasn’t Lonzo or the middle brother LiAngelo dropping 92 points in a game back in February, but LaMelo.

LaVar might have big aspirations for his kids, but thus far they’ve managed to impress at all the levels they have played in, so in the words of the great Michael Jordan, when it comes to the Big Baller Brand — “the ceiling is the roof.”
