LaVar pulls LiAngelo from UCLA

Adjust Comment Print

LaVar Ball told the Los Angeles Times and ESPN on Monday that he's going to explore other options for LiAngelo because "I'm not going to let him sit back and not practice".

As a result, the elder Ball has since made a decision to pull his son out of college.

"We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA", Bruins basketball coach Steve Alford said.

The middle Ball brother has yet to play a single game for UCLA, where brother Lonzo - now the starting point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers - played before he was drafted.

LaVar Ball put an end to his son LiAngelo's indefinite suspension at UCLA by working to pull his son from the school, according to multiple reports. "So basically they're in jail here".

The tiny rockets generate around 0.2 pounds of thrust, roughly equivalent to the force from the weight of a deck of playing cards. The spacecraft are powered by radioisotope thermal generators (RTGs) that generate heat from the decay of plutonium-238.

"He's not transferring to another school".

"I'm going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have", he said. LiAngelo is eligible to enter the NBA Draft in 2018. The arrests became an even bigger story when President Donald Trump intervened on behalf of the players with Chinese president Xi Jinping and they were allowed to come home shortly thereafter.

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

No word on what this means for the youngest ball brother, LaMelo, who is supposed to be heading to UCLA's basketball program in a couple of years. LiAngelo was a student and athlete at UCLA.
