LaVar Ball, LiAngelo Ball explain shoplifting arrest and decision to leave UCLA

06 December 2017

"It was disgusting", LiAngelo Ball said of his experience in the Chinese jail.

As for the decision to leave UCLA, LiAngelo said his suspension was starting to take toll.

LiAngelo Ball said he spent "a day and a half or something like that" in a Chinese jail. Three UCLA basketball players-Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley-detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting returned home, where they may be disciplined by the school as a result of the global scandal. "He only went to UCLA one-and-done to play basketball".

UCLA was in China last month for a game against Georgia Tech.

This comes after LiAngelo's arrest in China for stealing LV shades caused somewhat of an global incident.

The Bruins are wrapping up a critical four-game homestand that Alford has dubbed "growth week" before they play their only true nonconference road game of the season Saturday at MI. During the past three games, opponents are shooting just 35.7 percent from the field.

"That's just a long time of doing nothing", he said.

Video posted online recently showed Ball playing a pickup game against LaMelo. In light of Ball's latest involvement in dealings with President Donald Trump, I thought I would look more into Ball's antics and figure out whether or not I agree with this reputation, though it's hard not to at this point.

"We all went out one night, went to the malls, went to the Louis Vuitton store and, uh, people started taking stuff, and then, you know, me just not thinking and being with them, I took something too". Police officers showed up at the team hotel the next morning and arrested Ball, Riley and Hill.

"And we left thinking we'll just get away - you know how kids think". The players are allowed to use athletic facilities, including the weight room, but aren't working directly with the coaching staff, he said.

"We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future", Alford said in the statement. Alford said the disciplinary process remains ongoing through the office of student conduct, and he did not have a timeline for when it will be complete. "I think each of them are individual cases, so I don't think it makes us worrisome that something else is going to happen". But, according to a Yahoo report, Lietkabelis of the Lithuanian Basketball League has reached out with interest in the Ball boys. "Because if I got a fallback plan, that means I'm going 80 percent this way and 20 percent to my fallback", LaVar Ball said.

"Why for?" Alford responded.

Whatever his intentions, I can personally say I am exhausted of seeing him in the news.
