LaVar and LiAngelo Ball Explain What's Next After Son Leaves UCLA

LaVar Ball and his son Li Angelo Ball are seen in file

But LaVar Ball always seems to have something up his sleeve, and we'll just have to wait and see what that is.

LiAngelo Ball was indefinitely suspended alongside teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill after they were accused last month of shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store next to their hotel in Hangzhou, China.

The trio apologized to their teammates, friends, families and the government - including President Donald Trump - at a news conference after they were returned to the USA on November 14.

Two weeks after a much talked-about appearance on CNN to explain his feud with President Donald Trump, basketball father and businessman LaVar Ball joined "New Day" anchor Chris Cuomo again to discuss the aftermath of that feud and his attempt to patch things up with a gift.

"But I ain't going to stress it out", he added.

"We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA". You wear whatever they have for you, a little jumpsuit or whatever.

"China already said, 'OK, you made a bad mistake, we're going to drop the charges.' That's the punishment they made", LaVar said in the TV interview.

The White House has not disclosed whether Trump received the shoes.

"I sent him some shoes to calm him down". "They didn't tell me anything, so why am I gonna tell them".

"If [he] did it genuinely", Ball said, speaking of the players" release, "do you really need to come up to me and say, "Boy, you better thank me'?" He don't have to worry about all that.

Now that LaVar Ball has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA, the Big Baller Brand is moving forward with plans to unveil his first signature shoe, the Gelo 3, according to ESPN.

LiAngelo, a college freshman, told "Today" that being jailed in China was "horrible".

Not only will the two younger Ball brothers not play at UCLA, but they may not play in the country at all.

LiAngelo and UCLA parted ways officially on Monday, which marked the start of his preparation for his professional basketball career.

Ball told ESPN he hasn't decided where LiAngelo will play this season. "That's just a long time of doing nothing - I'd rather be playing". He'd be unable to enroll and play immediately for any NCAA Division I program, although there would have been at least the possibility he could catch on at a lower-level program, like an NAIA school.

LiAngelo, who is considered a long shot to be drafted, will instead focus on his National Basketball Association prospects, his father said.
