LaVar Ball pulls son LiAngelo out of UCLA, per reports

Posted December 05, 2017

LaVar Ball told ESPN that he has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA.

LiAngelo Ball, formerly a UCLA basketball player.

LiAngelo Ball, along with teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, have been suspended indefinitely since they shoplifted items from stores inside an upscale mall in China in November before the Bruins' season opener against Georgia Tech. They were later released days later and then another media storm ensued when President Donald Trump claimed he personally asked Chinese General Secretary Xi Jinping to help resolve the case.

The charges against LiAngelo - and two other UCLA freshmen - were dropped, which is what reportedly has LaVar peeved over the suspension.

"We are exploring other options with Gelo..." "He's out of there".

Reporter Zach Baron wrote that LaVar Ball was referring to LiAngelo Ball, his middle son.

LaVar Ball, the bombastic owner and founder of the infamous BBB, is a man known for bold moves and even bolder statements.

The three players are subject to review for violating the university's Student Conduct Code, which includes a section on theft. "That's like telling the Clippers back in the day not to play JJ Redick", LaVar Ball said.

The New York Times' Adam Zagoria appeared to receive confirmation from UCLA head coach Steve Alford that LiAngelo will be leaving the program. LaVar Ball publicly downplayed Trump's role in freeing his son and refused to offer the praise that the president was expecting.
