Ball, who is the brother of Los Angeles Lakers rising star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball and the son of the outspoken Big Baller Brand founder LaVar Ball, now remains in China with his two teammates.

"They (the Chinese authorities) do not play games".
Meanwhile, cops have already found the name of the person - Gena Prasad - who had rented the shop next to the bank. The incident came to light when a customer and a bank officer entered found that 27 lockers had been broken into.
