LaMelo Ball and Zion Williamson both put up monster performances in front of a monster-sized crowd.
Bomani Jones reflects on LaVar Ball's appeal that turned an AAU game into a full-blown spectacle.
The Wichita State Shockers were a 10-seed in the 2017 NCAA tournament, but the latest version of the Basketball Power Index says Gregg Marshall's experienced and talented team should be aiming much higher in 2017-18.
The game was a spectacle, with NBA players, college coaches and fans flocking to see LaVar Ball, LaMelo Ball and the Big Baller Brand AAU in Vegas. To LaVar, it was all about him. "The best coach ever. That's how I describe myself," he said.
A few days after pulling his AAU team off the court after receiving a technical foul, LaVar Ball finds beef with the officials yet again.
In a wide-ranging chat, LaVar Ball proclaims himself the best coach ever and calls his son LaMelo the most famous high school athlete ever.
