Former Newport Harbor high school standout Brandon Phillips, who played for the Los Angeles Ballers in LaVar Ball’s Junior Basketball Association, claims the league owes him money and have failed to live up to their promises.

Today, Phillips spoke with Thomas Duffy of Cycle media and claims that the JBA has only paid him roughly one-third of his promised salary, and are not answering his phone calls or emails.

Phillips, who was cut by the league midway through the season to make for LiAngelo Ball, took to Twitter to also claim that the league made him pay to check in his own bags at the airport.

Back in June, LaVar Ball confirmed that players were going to get paid $3k a month in base salary and receive 60 percent of all jersey sales.

The JBA league wrapped up earlier this week with every player on the championship team getting a brand new Cadillac.

Hopefully the JBA resolves the situation with Phillips soon because as of right now it’s not a good look for the league.
