TMZ Sports reported that LaVar was upset with UCLA for putting his son on indefinite suspension after LiAngelo and other UCLA teammates were arrested in China for shoplifting. "He's out of there".

LaVar Ball has pulled LiAngelo Ball out of UCLA before he ever played a game. Although there are seemingly no hard feelings from the Ball family, they are no strangers to taking this course of action.

"He's not transferring to another school", he told ESPN. "We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future".

LaVar Ball reportedly considered LiAngelo's suspension unfair after the charges against him and the others were dropped.

One NBA executive was rather blunt about the NBA prospects for Lonzo Ball's younger brother. "If I was going to thank somebody I'd probably thank President Xi (Jinping)", LaVar Ball said to CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"I haven't told any of those guys,"Lavar told ESPN".

The three players are subject to review for violating the university's Student Conduct Code, which includes a section on theft.

Looks like LiAngelo's career with the UCLA Bruins is over before it could officially begin. "That's like telling the Clippers back in the day not to play JJ Redick", LaVar Ball said. LaMelo verbally committed to attend UCLA in two years. LaVar Ball publicly downplayed Trump's role in freeing his son and refused to offer the praise that the president was expecting.
