LaVar Ball has put one son in the NBA as fans will tell you; he’s also pulled two from school as critics will point out. Following home schooling youngest son LaMelo Ball as announced this summer, middle child LiAngelo Ball has been pulled from UCLA after a shoplifting fiasco overseas in China.
Perhaps best for both LiAngelo and the program due to the controversy since created, with Gelo no longer being an NCAA athlete he no longer has to wear school mandated Under Armour and can create his own shoe. According to our own Nick DePaula and his ESPN colleague Jovan Buha, the Big Baller Brand Gelo 3 is in the works. Also of interest, Gelo’s short stay at UCLA included a pickup run with 2 Chainz and Kanye West where Yeezy debuted the Yeezy basketball shoe. Very rare.

Now that LaVar Ball has pulled son LiAngelo Ball from UCLA, there are plans in place for a third Big Baller Brand sneaker alongside the ZO2 and Melo Ball 1. LiAngelo’s eventual signature shoe will be called the “Gelo 3,” via ESPN’s @JovanBuha. https://t.co/bW4mxTfifI
