LaMelo Ball horrid from 3-point range in Junior Basketball Association

LaMelo Ball, touted as the marquee player of the Junior Basketball Association (JBA), is doing something extraordinary.

Extraordinary awful.

Three games into the inaugural season of the JBA — a league started by LaVar Ball for NBA hopefuls who don’t want to play college basketball — LaMelo Ball is 3-for-32 (9.3 percent) from 3-point range, including 0-for-16 in the past two games.

Ball, 16, was 0-for-9 from 3-point range Friday in a 130-108 loss to the New York Ballers that dropped Los Angeles’ record to 2-1.

He is averaging 41 points on 38.3 percent shooting from the field along with 12.7 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game during the 48-minute contests.

Ball, who plays guard, will have a chance to break his 3-point drought Tuesday when Los Angeles plays Dallas.

Players are being paid $ 3,000 month and that league, which opened its season June 29 in Ontario, Calif., is scheduled to continue through Aug. 12.
