LaVar, LiAngelo Ball explain shoplifting incident in China, decision to leave UCLA

LaVar, LiAngelo Ball explain shoplifting incident in China, decision to leave UCLA

LaVar also said he believes his punishment in the US has been tougher, thus far, than anything his son faced in China. They don't know how to coach my son.

"We just learned through reports yesterday, I think shorty before or after practice" Alford said.

Asked Tuesday how Ball, who did not appear in a single game for UCLA, projects as an National Basketball Association prospect, Alford said he had "no idea on that". "I'm at Pauley [Pavilion] every day. If they need to talk to me, they know where to find me".

LiAngelo isn't playing anywhere now as it seems mid-major programs aren't biting, LaMelo isn't playing anything other than AAU ball right now if that, so it seems their immediate future is playing professionally somewhere.

"It's a disappointment there's an end to that where he didn't get to be a part of an incredible academic institution, so that's out". "That's one of the main reasons he went to UCLA is to play basketball".

"When you don't get to experience that, that's disappointing".

The Bruins announced Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were indefinitely suspended after stealing from multiple stores when the team was in Hangzhou preparing for a November 10 game against Georgia Tech. They are barred from all team activities.

That said, the Lakers organization still can't prevent the Big Baller from going on shows such as SiriusXM NBA Radio and voicing his displeasure with the team's performance. Authorities eventually let them go home.

Well, that didn't take long.

His father told "Access Hollywood" that his "grand plan" is for his three sons to play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

LiAngelo Ball, son of LaVar Ball, was pulled out of UCLA by his father, who believes the indefinite suspension the players received is too harsh.

LiAngelo's older brother, Lonzo, was the second pick in this summer's NBA Draft and is now registering record-setting shooting numbers with the Lakers.

"I'm going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have", Ball said.

Granted that it is certainly likely that Trump helped to speed along the UCLA players' return to the US, Chinese law experts have said that the teens were in no danger of actually being jailed in China. Ball minimized Trump's involvement in winning the players' release and Trump tweeted in response that he should have left the players in China in jail.

LaVar told "Access Hollywood" he sent Trump three pairs of Big Baller shoes in red, white and blue.
