LiAngelo, LaMelo Ball want to play together overseas

"It was terrible", LiAngelo said about jail on the "TODAY" show. It's about what I can control. The other part of me thinks he is a insane dad who clearly loves his sons but does not know how to conduct his love for them in a socially acceptable way.

Even if it were true that scouts would fall in love with LiAngelo if they saw him play with Lonzo, it's nonetheless pointless to talk about, as the two obviously won't play together in a game before the 2018 NBA Draft.

"That's a long time of doing nothing", LiAngelo told NBC's "Today" on Tuesday of his suspension at UCLA.


With LaVar Ball yanking his son out of college in the classic, "this isn't going my way so I'm taking my ball and going home", move, there are surely parents throwing their hands up in the air filled with anger and disgust.

"Yes, we have openings at the security staff because they have experience in this field" is the best put down on the Ball family anyone has thrown yet, and it comes from a Lithuanian basketball team you've never heard of until reading this story. LaVar said. "Let's stand up to bat (for the players) and say you're the coach".

The other two freshmen detained in China for shoplifting - Jalen Hill and Cody Riley - remain enrolled at UCLA but suspended indefinitely. "They take your clothes, you wear like whatever they have for you, a little jumpsuit or whatever, take your shoestrings and you just sit in a cement cell for however long". "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.


LiAngelo is the middle child of Ball's three sons.

The brothers - Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo - were tearing up the high school and AAU circuits, most notably for their high-scoring performances.

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 Ball and President Donald Trump have engaged in a public war of words since the three players returned from China. Nevertheless, it's a joke that should come across well with the Big Baller Brand-hating section of the population, which is significant.
