LaVar Ball has become infamous for his wild statements and personality. But his reaction to a skirmish involving his youngest son, LaMelo, could really land him in hot water.

In a recent game between LaVar's JBA Team USA and BC Dzukija of Lithuania, LaMelo got ejected and LaVar was noticeably peeved. Beyond that, few details were available.

On a recent episode of Ball in the Family, LaVar got to re-watch the brawl and got incensed. Following LaMelo's ejection, LaVar Ball stated to the cameras that he wanted to "choke" his son over what had happened.

“Didn’t I tell you don’t do this on that stage? Oh, I wanted to choke the hell out of him. Like, man, you messing this up for a lot of people, man. For a lot of people.”

LaMelo is only 17 years old and supposedly seeking a way to get into the NCAA despite having played professionally in Lithuania.

The talented guard was spotted at a college basketball game this weekend, but he was reportedly just there with a high school teammate.

It's probably unlikely that LaMelo will find his way onto a major college basketball team's roster.
