As legal fires rage at home, the Ball family is going international.

Basketball’s loudest family announced the opening of the 2019 Big Baller Brand Mini Camp, in which young basketball players of all skill levels can pay the low price of 400 Euros for a two-day coaching session.

Details are predictably sparse in the camp’s website. What we do know is that the camp is scheduled to take place in Doha, Qatar, as well as three European cities, and a place in the camp will cost families 400 euros (around $450).

The camp, run by a company graded with an F by the Better Business Bureau, promises the typo-filled following:

  • Interaction with “Lavar (sic) Ball and all Ball family” (the camp’s site didn’t correctly capitalize LaVar’s name)

  • eligibility to be a draft pick for the Junior Basketball Association World Tour Team (that’s still going?)

  • professional basketball coaches. (that’s good!)

  • “a gift package, including a food (sic) on camp day” (also good!)

It’s more than a little surprising that the Ball family is proceeding with this. Dysfunction has defined Big Baller Brand even more than usual since company co-founder Alan Foster was forced out after $1.5 million went suspiciously missing. Lonzo Ball, the company’s majority owner, seemed to signal the death of the company when he covered his tattoo of the BBB logo.

Big Baller Brand’s site isn’t even live right nowits Twitter account hasn’t tweeted in over a month and its financial manager might be headed to jail, again. And now, they’re going to run a basketball camp across four countries on the other side of the globe?

This is all to say one simple thing: Buyer beware.
