LaVar Ball announced that his youngest son, LaMelo Ball, will be heading back to high school for his senior year at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
One of his teammates there will be Robert Bobroczky, who at 7-foot-7 is the tallest high school player in the world.
He described in the video what it has been like to be so tall so young:
My father used to tell me that it’s a blessing or a curse – it’s up to you how you see it. And it is, indeed. When I was young I tried to look at it as a blessing but I was not mature enough so most of the time I looked at it as if I wished I was shorter so people wouldn’t look at me. But when I realized there was more than just you, things changed. You don’t work just for yourself. You also work for your family, for your community, for your fiends. In my case you work for my country so I just want to make everybody proud and not let them down. That’s the motivation.
Rob Bob is entering his third year at SPIRE.
This team is perfect for the circus sideshow LaMelo will create with his presence.
