    In the fall of 2017, LaVar Ball sent shockwaves throughout the basketball world by removing his son LiAngelo Ball from UCLA after a shoplifting incident in China had him indefinitely suspended from the team. In an effort to buck the system, he sent LiAngelo, and younger brother LaMelo to Lithuania to play professional basketball creating a media firestorm. In the midst of this, he had an idea to bring an amateur professional basketball league to the United States, which would allow players who had a desire to play professionally in lieu of going the college route. His detractors believed the league wouldn't get off the ground and the idea was merely a pipe dream. What many don't know is just how the league was created, who was part of the process, and how a small team managed to make history and defy the odds. Brandon Williams was the Director of Media Relations and Color Commentator for the League and has first-hand knowledge of the inner workings of all things JBA League. In this book, he answers those questions and reveals how the JBA League forever changed the basketball and amateur athletics landscape as a whole forever.
