1/18/2018 9:00 AM PST
TMZ Sports has obtained documents showing LaVar (doing business as the Big Baller Brand) has filed applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to get the rights for the "JBA" aka the "Junior Basketball Association."
He's stated he wants to pay players between $3,000 and $10,000 per month. He's looking to recruit 80 players to fill 10 teams.
LaVar is gunning to launch the JBA in the Summer of 2018.
FYI, Ball doesn't outright own the trademark ... yet. It could take months before the USPTO approves his application.References^ LaVar Ball (www.tmz.com)^ Lonzo Ball (www.tmz.com)^ create the league (www.tmz.com)
