LaVar Ball announced in December he was starting a new league for blue-chip high school basketball players who would rather avoid the current one-and-done NCAA system in place. Though the league has not lured any top players other than LaMelo Ball—and some prospects have put LaVar on blast for sliding in their DMs to attempt to recruit them—the league, dubbed the Junior Basketball Association, is set to kick off June 21 in Ontario.
So, how much will it cost to attend a JBA session? We found out Monday, as the first round of tickets went on sale. You can check them out here, via Ticketmaster.
Tickets generally range in price from $40-100, plus the requisite ticket-buyer fees. LaVar always prefers premium pricing—as we saw with Lonzo's signature sneakers—so it's no surprise these tickets are far from cheap.
On Sunday, the league released details for prospective players interested in trying out.
The Big Baller Brand Media Twitter page has posted JBA updates, if you're interested in following the league's progress.
LaVar recently pulled LaMelo and his middle son, LiAngelo, from their professional team in Lithuania. The reason was unsurprising: the eldest Ball couldn't see eye to eye with his sons' coach. LiAngelo recently declared for the NBA Draft.
