In January, it was announced that LaMelo Ball would not play in the McDonald’s All-American Game despite being ranked higher than several of the players that were selected in ESPN’s top 100 prospects. Suffice to say, his father, LaVar Ball, wasn’t thrilled about it.
During this week’s episode of “Ball In the Family,” LaVar said the world famous high school All-Star game lost its credibility:
They used to say “who’s who” used to play at the McDonald’s All-American. Now it ain’t the who’s who because guess what? Melo the most popular, most skilled sucka and don’t make it? Their credibility is raggedy. Back in the day they said “You somebody, you a McDonald’s All-American.” Melo finna change all that, cause now they know you don’t take the best.
