He is strengthening us.”

Bleacher Report: LaVar Ball to Launch Big Baller Brand Basketball League For Top Ranked Players Who Skip College @balleralert G BAL BRA Read More: www.balleralert.conm LaVar Ball to Launch Big Baller Brand Basketball League For Top Ranked Players Who Skip College – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LaVarBall is back at it again with his Big Baller ideas and new rules for success. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The father everyone loves to hate and hates to love has just launched a new league for high school students to follow their dreams. According to Slam Online, the Junior Basketball Association will pay top prospects a couple of thousand dollars a month and will serve as an alternative to the one and done athletes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We have officially launched our own pro basketball league called the “Junior Basketball Association,” sponsored by Big Baller Brand,” Ball said in a statement to the publication. “The JBA is the very first junior pro basketball league of its kind. The JBA will cater to the top-ranked high school basketball prospects in America. All nationally ranked high school seniors, whose main goal are to reach the NBA, will be offered an opportunity to join the JBA, turning pro straight out of high school and bypassing the usual college pit stop.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With a monthly stipend between $3,000 to $10,000, as well as the proper tools and assistance needed to prepare for the NBA draft, the new league will be a new way for players to pursue the pros. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, Ball is looking to secure at least 80 players for 10 teams, with games held in LA, Dallas, Brooklyn, and Atlanta. He spoke with ESPN’s Darren Rovell about his decision and expressed his confidence in league’s participation, saying, “Getting these players is going to be easy. This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new league will follow the rules of the NBA with professional court features, but there is a catch. All players will be required to rock BBB merch for the league. ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Bleacher Report: Derrick Rose Reportedly Wants To Return To The Cavalierss @balleralert CLEVELAND Derrick Rose Reportedly Wants To Return To The Cavaliers – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After taking some time to reconsider his career in the NBA and recover from a sprained ankle, DerrickRose has revealed that he’s ready to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, just 10 days after leaving the team to debate his future in the league, Rose wants to come back. However, with the team on an 11-game winning streak, “where he fits now remains to be seen,” Lloyd reports, but “The Cavs are expected to have an announcement regarding Rose on Sunday.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rose’s injury issue dates back to 2012 postseason. However, upon his arrival in Cleveland, the baller had been ready for a fresh start. But, when he tweaked his ankle on Oct. 20, things took a turn for the worse. One month later, the team said Rose would be undergoing treatment on his ankle, with plans to reevaluate in a few weeks, Bleacher Report states. However, just days later, Rose considered hanging it all up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rose’s decision to take some time off to reevaluate his future, prompted several former and fellow teammates to release statements of support. LeBron James offered his support, saying, “Whenever he’s ready to tell us or whatever, we’re ready for that. You don’t ever fast-track someone’s process of what they may be going through. When they’re ready to talk about it or ready to bring it to the forefront, as his teammates, we’ll be ready for it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t know what the organization’s stand on that is. That’s different,” he continued. “From us as players, we don’t need an answer from him. We want him to be as great as he can be, off the floor first before he even thinks about being on the floor.”

Others reportedly believe his anger stems from his failed attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills in 2014. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He’s trying to destroy us,” the owner revealed. “He’s trying to use race to divide the players and our fans. It’s all over a grudge.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump’s attacks began to increase in September when he said players who kneel should be fired, calling them “sons of b*tches.” The attack received widespread backlash and prompted even more players to ban together in protest against Trump. However, the attacks didn’t end there, they continued week by week with attacks as recent as Tuesday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, the league made their own efforts to end the movement. According to Bleacher Report, the league has made a proposal to players to contribute “at least $89 million over a seven-year period” to causes in African-American communities in an effort to halt the protests.

Bleacher Report: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”
