What’s Wrong With LaVar’s JBL? Empty Arenas And Poor Basketball!

 

LaVar Ball’s initial idea of the JBA (Junior Basketball Association) as an NCAA alternative may have been a decent idea, but what he since made out of the idea makes us think that it was less idealistic than mercenary.

Would you go to a JBA game? A league that features no top-100 recruits? A league that basically is on one level with some AAU games? Yes, why not, I’d watch it! I bet you won’t when you find out that LaVar is charing more for a ticket than most NBA arenas.

For the opening games on June 21 in California, tickets started at $40 and went up to $99, before fees obviously. This led to basically no one coming to the games, that nontheless take place in 10,000-plus-seat arenas.

But it turns out that the empty arenas aren’t the main problem, but the actual basketball being played. Check out the league’s poor style of play summed up in this short video.
