Steve Alford Says He Was 'Surprised' LiAngelo Ball Left UCLA Basketball Team

Steve Alford Says He Was 'Surprised' LiAngelo Ball Left UCLA Basketball Team

Los Angeles Lakers rooking point guard Lonzo Ball is reportedly "disgusted" with the Lakers' 8-15 record this season and their current five game losing streak. "I'm at the Ostin Center every day working, so if they need to talk, they know where to find me". "We got to be mindful now that they could be under this too on the fact that they have to hold a little accountability".

Asked if he would reach out to the Ball family, Alford said, no. And I bet they're probably thrilled.

"It's a disappointment there's an end to that where he didn't get to be a part of an incredible academic institution, so that's out". "So yeah, there's definitely a disappointment that there's some finality to that".

President Donald Trump personally spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping to get three UCLA basketball players released from Chinese custody for stealing, and now one of them has left the team, and the school, because of his suspension.

"When you don't get to experience that, that's disappointing". Before the team's season opener against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Shanghai, China, LiAngelo and two other freshmen, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were arrested for shoplifting sunglasses. They are barred from all team activities.

Lithuanian team Lietkabelis Panevezys has said no in such a fantastic and petty way: their coach, Arturs Stalberg said in essence that he'd love to sign the Balls, but just not to play basketball.

"It was disgusting", he said.

Well, that didn't take long. Then you just sit in a cement cell for however long.

His father told "Access Hollywood" that his "grand plan" is for his three sons to play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

LaVar and LiAngelo Ball made their way around the media circuit on Tuesday, a mere hours after the talented freshman withdrew from UCLA.

LiAngelo's older brother, Lonzo, was the second pick in this summer's NBA Draft and is now registering record-setting shooting numbers with the Lakers. He pulled his youngest son, LaMelo, out of high school after clashing with his coach.

"I'm going to get Gelo in shape, I'm going to work him out, we're going to do some other things and he's going to be headed to the National Basketball Association", the elder ball said.

Granted that it is certainly likely that Trump helped to speed along the UCLA players' return to the US, Chinese law experts have said that the teens were in no danger of actually being jailed in China. The men's exchanges escalated from there, with Trump calling Ball "an ungrateful fool".
