LaVar Ball: Withdrawing suspended son to prepare for National Basketball Association

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were all detained in China for shoplifting. "He only went to UCLA one-and-done to play basketball".

"If [he] did it genuinely", Ball said, speaking of the players" release, "do you really need to come up to me and say, "Boy, you better thank me'?" "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them". He'd be unable to enroll and play immediately for any NCAA Division I program, although there would have been at least the possibility he could catch on at a lower-level program, like an NAIA school. Ball and the other players thanked Trump-a bit too slowly for the president's liking-but Ball's father LaVar remains adamant that the president's desire for gratitude was unseemly. "It's just you and all the officers, and they don't speak English".

It wasn't until later that Ball realized he'd made a serious error in judgment: "We left thinking we'll just get away".

While all three basketball players thanked Trump at a news conference once they were back on US soil, LaVar Ball has played down Trump's role in bringing them home, prompting furious tweets from the president. LaVar Ball publicly downplayed Trump's role in freeing his son and refused to offer the praise that the president was expecting.

UCLA said in a statement on Monday afternoon: "We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA".

LaVar Ball, the boisterous and bombastic patriarch of three basketball-playing sons, has become a major marketing marvel.

LaMelo and LiAngelo - as well as their older brother Lakers star guard Lonzo - have quickly developed name recognition thanks both to their play on the court and their large social media presence off of it.

"The grand plan stays the same: All these boys are going to get on the Lakers". "Watch how I do this".

Ball added that he sent Trump three pairs of his eldest son Lonzo Ball's signature shoes, the Big Baller Brand ZO2 Prime Remix.

"I'm going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have", LaVar Ball told ESPN in his latest obnoxious boast.

"I ain't got no fallback plan", LaVar said.

LaVar and LiAngelo Ball. "I'm 100 in. So I never get stopped".
