I know I'm supposed to use this short clip filled with such an overwhelming amount of incompetence that it makes it seem about 10x longer than its running time to mock the JPA as a pay-for-play extension of AAU. After all, from the little I've seen, those kids look exactly as incentivized to play a style of basketball that runs counterproductive to them making any real money in the sport as you'd expect. LaVar Ball's plan to give teenagers a profitable way out from under the NCAA's iron fist was always a much better plan in theory, so laughing at the objectively hilarious execution kind of feels like a long time coming.
That being said, he's certainly proved the doubters that didn't think he was capable of starting his own "semi-professional" league wrong. If nothing else, LaVar Ball has shown any and all young entrepreneurs that want to become sports' commissioners that all they really need is whole hell of a lot of dollars and a dream. Of course that dream is a lot more glamorous as such, seeing as no one should want to sit court side in an otherwise empty arena (see below) and lay claim to a product that embarrassing. However, as long as you're not at all concerned with the integrity of the sport, or thriving as an entity, or developing players, the JBA appears to be the blueprint for getting shortsighted business models off the ground while trying to capitalize on time-sensitive relevance.
