LaVar Ball Removes Shoplifting Son LiAngelo Ball From UCLA

LaVar Ball Removes Shoplifting Son LiAngelo Ball From UCLA

Following their return, the Bruins basketball program suspended Ball and teammates Jalen Hill and Cody Riley indefinitely due to the incident.

After a quiet couple of weeks in Westwood, the maneuver by LaVar Ball brings the latest round of publicity and counterblast to him and his family.

"They don't know how to coach my son", LaVar Ball said in November, according to Bleacher Report. The charges were eventually dropped, but not before the worldwide incident made headlines when President Donald Trump tweeted that he helped free the players, which the elder Ball disputed.

"We are exploring other options with Gelo", he said. President Trump, who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled. "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them".

"I'm not sitting back and waiting", LaVar Ball told ESPN.

"He's not transferring to another school", Ball told ESPN.

The announcement comes just two months after Ball chose to pull his other son, LaMelo, out of Chino Hills High School.

"He might as well be in jail", LaVar Ball, LiAngelo's father, told the Los Angeles Times.

It appears LiAngelo Ball's UCLA career has ended before it ever began. But even without a landing spot, Lavar feels he can prepare LiAngelo for the National Basketball Association better than a college team can.

His older brother, Lonzo, played one year at UCLA before declaring for the NBA Draft.
