‘Can Make Blind See, Cripples Walk,’
… Says New Coach

“We got the guy who can make the blind see and the cripples walk in LaMelo Ball”
Yeah, that’s a REAL quote from LaMelo Ball‘s new high school basketball coach, Jermaine Jackson — who says he’s so excited about the young player, it’s like Magic Johnson all over again.
LaMelo, along with Jackson and LaVar Ball, just hosted a media event at the Spire Academy in Ohio where the 17-year-old will play this season … and they’re HYPED UP!
“Like Magic Johnson said in the ’80s, don’t look down because you might miss something,” Jackson said about Ball … “It’s showtime baby!”
LaVar added this message to the Ohio media — “Since LeBron left, I brought you a Ball boy.”
Don’t worry, LaMelo has a plan after he finishes his senior year — he wants to play college ball.
In fact, Ball told the media he’s already got some schools in mind — including North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Michigan State … according to WKYC’s Ben Axelrod.

LaVar also told the media he thinks LaMelo is the most famous high school basketball player of all time — even more famous than Bron was — because James was virtually unknown overseas.
Ball is expected to make his Ohio high school debut in the next few days.
Stay tuned …
