LiAngelo Ball Is Leaving UCLA Without Having Played a Game

  • Li Angelo Ball listens at a press conference at UCLA after flying back from China where he was detained

"We are exploring other options with Gelo", LaVar Ball told Jeff Goodman of ESPN. "He's out of there".

A reason LiAngelo Ball was on the UCLA roster was due to his older brother, Lonzo, starring there previous year, and because his five-star recruit younger brother, LaMelo, is slated to go there in 2019. Ball, freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested while their team was in China for their season opener.

The three players were subsequently suspended indefinitely by the team after returning to the United States. The incident made global news and even President Donald Trump weighed in on the matter claiming he advocated and was responsible for the release of Ball and the other two UCLA players.

LaVar Ball has reportedly removed his son, LiAngelo Ball, from UCLA.

Several chains tightened store inventories as well, to ward off any post-holiday liquidation that would weigh on profits. There was little evidence of the delirious shopper frenzy customary of Black Fridays from past years.

"They don't know how to coach my son", LaVar Ball said in November, according to Bleacher Report. That sparked a very public back-and-forth exchange between the celebrity-in-chief and LaVar, with Trump tweeting, "I should have left them in jail" and calling the outspoken hoops dad an "ungrateful fool" for not thanking him. While LiAngelo Ball is good enough to make the UCLA roster, he probably has little chance to make an National Basketball Association roster anytime soon. His brother Lonzo played one season with the Bruins before being drafted No. 2 by the Lakers.

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.

"I haven't told any of those guys,"Lavar told ESPN".
