LiAngelo Ball has left UCLA’s basketball program before ever playing a game for the team. Reportedly, LaVar Ball has removed his shoplifting son from the team and school.
Reports TMZ Sports:
As you know, LiAngelo was indefinitely suspended from the team after he stole from several stores during a trip to China. LiAngelo was placed on house arrest but was sprung after Trump and others went to bat for him.
We’re told LaVar believes the suspension was unfair, especially since the charges were dropped. LaVar’s people tell TMZ Sports the famous dad thinks, “There’s no need to break down a kid’s spirit for making a mistake.”
Our sources say LiAngelo is not officially withdrawn from the school but he’s at home and will not return to UCLA.
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.
This is where we mention that went it comes to basketball, LiAngelo is considered by most scouts to be the least talented sibling. Taking into account Lonzo’s struggle in the NBA so far, and his stupidity in China, homie may need all the schooling he can get.
