Due to their notoriety, it may be a good business decision to sign the two, even if it's not the best basketball decision, but one team from Lithuania has already said "thanks, but no thanks" to the circus. "I'm at the Ostin Center every day working, so if they need to talk, they know where to find me". "That's his passion. For them to prolong this and to go on and on, it's ridiculous to me".
Asked Tuesday how Ball, who did not appear in a single game for UCLA, projects as an National Basketball Association prospect, Alford said he had "no idea on that". "That's one of the main reasons he went to UCLA is to play basketball. Just hearing reports and then our staff reached out to family representation of the Balls, and they said that was their intent".
While all of the players thanked Trump at a press conference soon after arriving back in Los Angeles, outspoken father Lavar Ball has refused to do so; instead choosing to troll Trump at every possible opportunity by questioning how much of a role the USA president actually played in his son's release, causing Trump to tweet that he should have left the teens in jail. They are barred from all team activities.
Alford indicated Tuesday that he expected the fate of the other two suspended players to be resolved in the near term.
For the first time since he was locked up in a Chinese jail, LiAngelo Ball spoke openly about the shoplifting incident which caused a bit of worldwide drama last month, showing off his passing skills to National Basketball Association scouts by throwing his now-former UCLA teammates under the bus. Authorities eventually let them go home. LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand is once again in the news after LaVar took his middle son LiAngelo out of UCLA earlier this week. 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. "It's just you and the officers and they don't speak English". Oldest son Lonzo is a rookie with the Lakers after playing one successful season at UCLA. He pulled his youngest son, LaMelo, out of high school after clashing with his coach.
"I'm going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have", Ball said.
Not only is it notable that they may have to be a package deal, a la Henrik and Daniel Sedin (at least we can tell these Ball brothers apart), but that the process has already begun to gauge interest in them from teams in Europe and Asia, though probably not China. Ball minimized Trump's involvement in winning the players' release and Trump tweeted in response that he should have left the players in China in jail.
