LaVar Ball: LaMelo is more famous than LeBron was in high school

"We got the guy who can make the blind see and the cripples walk in La Melo Ball

So, if LaMelo indeed is eligible to play college basketball, where would he play?

A little less of a hot take from Ball. He's enrolling in Spire Academy and already making headlines. The school is located less than 50 miles from Cleveland.

The billboard was put up by the sports company Overtime to welcome LaMelo to his new home.

His youngest son LaMelo is in OH where he'll start at the SPIRE Institute, and of course the comparisons to a certain other high school star from OH started getting flung around. So we thought it would be pretty epic to celebrate his return to high school with a billboard, playing on another famous Cleveland billboard.

The youngest son of LaVar Ball, LaMelo left Chino Hills High School previous year to play overseas in Lithuania with his brother, LiAngelo Ball, and recently played in his father's JBA League. A billboard popped up Friday in downtown Cleveland, just minutes from Quicken Loans Arena, with Ball's photo and the caption "Welcome to Ohio, LaMelo".

That includes Spire coach Jermaine Jackson, who told TMZ Sports that Ball has the opportunity to eventually become the first pick in the National Basketball Association draft. Presently, the 1-10 Cavaliers could conceivably be in possession of one of those future top picks, though they'll definitely be considering other candidates besides Ball.
