UCLA freshman basketball players, from left, Cody Riley, LiAngelo Ball and Jalen Hill appear at Wednesday's press conference at UCLA before reading statements and apologizing for their shoplifting arrests last week in China. This national story grew with the intervention of Trump and Liangelo's father.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said the matter, "has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities", after Ball, along with teammates Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on November 14 following the 12-hour flight from Shanghai.
I'll be the first to admit, I didn't think much of the Ball family when I first heard about three brothers in California who were hyped to be the next great family in basketball. "So I don't know if there's an adjustment, we just keep moving forward". And I bet they're probably thrilled. I'm one of them.
Furthermore, talk about putting vast pressure on son LaMelo Ball, who's still just 16 years old. LiAngelo Ball explained on the Today Show that "people started taking stuff and me, just not thinking and being with them, I took something too". "We're getting better. That's what I'm most proud of with that group of young men; we've traveled a lot and had our share of distractions over the past five weeks".
Unless Ball is a reincarnation of John Wooden, that's not happening.
The incident garnered national attention and criticism for the Ball family, most of it aimed at Lavar, who did not restrain his words about the incident or President Donald Trump's involvement. How would you react if this were your son? "The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the National Basketball Association draft".
LiAngelo isn't playing anywhere now as it seems mid-major programs aren't biting, LaMelo isn't playing anything other than AAU ball right now if that, so it seems their immediate future is playing professionally somewhere.
Are we forgetting one aspect here?
LaVar Ball said at the time that "one of the main reasons [LiAngelo Ball] went to UCLA" was to play basketball. But is that the issue here? But is their father that incompetent to expect it to be fact?
