LaVar Ball Already At Odds With Chino Hills Coach

LaMelo Ball Signs With Agent; Won’t Go To UCLA

Outspoken LaVar Ball is already at odds with new Chino Hills (CA) coach Dennis Latimore, the school’s third skipper in the last three years.

 

“There’s about to be new drama,” Ball told the LA Times. “I don’t like him [Latimore] one bit.”

 

Latimore said he is aware of LaVar Ball’s critical comments of him.

 

“I’m aware of the situation. We’re going to be handling everything internally,” Latimore said. “He can say whatever he wants to say. We’re going to try to make this about high school sports and the kids and at the end of day, we’re going to do what’s best for the team.”

 

Latimore was hired in May, replacing coach Stephan Gilling, who left the job in April despite guiding the team led by Ball’s sons LiAngelo and LaMelo to a 30-3 record and the CIF Southern Section Open Division semifinals this season.

 

Tensions arose when outspoken LaVar blamed coach Gilling for the team’s season-ending 87-80 loss to Bishop Montgomery at the CIF State Southern California Regional Semifinals in March.

 

“Man, we were supposed to go to Sacramento, but that coach is hard-headed. He wanted to do things his way,” Ball told ESPN of coach Gilling after the defeat. “If we would have gotten along, we would have been in the state title easy.”

 

Gilling, who coached at the school for only one season, had replaced Steve Baik, who also left Chino Hills amid rumors the he had become fed up with meddling from LaVar Ball.
