No place for Lavar Ball in sports world


The Big Baller Brand founder went on quite the media tour Tuesday, including a stop on "TODAY" with son LiAngelo Ball, during which the two explained why LiAngelo made a decision to Withdraw from UCLA. LiAngelo has been, since coming back (from China), he's been tremendous as far as (he's) been to all his classes.

"If you're looking for one word, maybe it's surprised because it's nothing that we saw coming".

Earlier in the day Tuesday, LaVar Ball said in an interview on CNN that UCLA's coaches should shoulder some of the responsibility for the situation in China involving Ball and two other Bruins freshmen that blew up into an worldwide incident.

"It was frightful", LiAngelo said about jail on the "TODAY" show. They are barred from all team activities.

The pots for Champions League last 16, first and second leg dates
Manchester United , Manchester City , Liverpool and Spurs all topped their groups, while Chelsea came second. Group winners are drawn against second place sides and play away first, with the second legs at home.

Ball and his father LaVar appeared on morning news shows Tuesday, including the Today Show and CNN, detailing the shoplifting scandal that started in Hangzhou, China and eventually expanded into President Donald Trump's Twitter timeline.

LaVar Ball told ESPN before the season that LiAngelo would stay at UCLA for only one season, even if he wasn't projected as a draft pick. Yes, all three brothers (Lonzo Ball plays for the Los Angeles Lakers) are good at basketball. All that being said, I do not think we should keep giving him the attention.

LiAngelo Ball, along with fellow freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, are now serving indefinite suspensions for their participation in a shoplifting incident during the Bruins' trip to China last month. I'm here. I'm at Pauley every day.

LaVar Ball said earlier Monday that he hadn't informed the UCLA coaching staff that he was pulling LiAngelo.

Roger Goodell defeats Jerry Jones, signs National Football League extension
The position has been a lucrative one for Goodell, who has earned more than $200 million since 2006, according to ESPN . He later said he would not take the matter to court but told USA TODAY Sports' Jarrett Bell he wanted "accountability".

"They had him there just to use the Ball family name. If they need to talk to me, they know where to find me". "We left thinking we would just get away, you know how kids think, I just didn't realized until we got back to the hotel, I was like, that was stupid but I didn't realize it was too late", Ball exclaimed.

In the tweet, Trump criticized Ball as being ungrateful of what he did for his son and the two other freshmen. His brother Lonzo played one season with the Bruins before being drafted No. 2 by the Lakers.

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.

LaVar told "Access Hollywood" he sent Trump three pairs of Big Baller shoes in red, white and blue.
