LaVar Ball says he's pulling his son, LiAngelo, out of UCLA

"We are exploring other options with Gelo", LaVar Ball told ESPN. He also has a long history of trolling current and former National Basketball Association players, once saying he could beat Michael Jordan in 1-on-1 back in his heyday.

According to ESPN, Riley, Hill and LiAngelo Ball were subject to review for possible violations to UCLA's Student Conduct Code.

Less than one month after LaVar Ball's son was detained in China after being accused of shoplifting, Ball told ESPN on Monday that he has pulled freshman LiAngelo Ball from UCLA after not playing any games for the university.

"I told my boys that one of them wasn't going to make it". President Trump, who was on a tour of Asia, personally intervened with President Xi Jinping of China to get the issue settled. Although there are seemingly no hard feelings from the Ball family, they are no strangers to taking this course of action. "We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future".

"He's not transferring to another school".

He even recently was on CNN, refusing to thank President Donald Trump for his involvement in releasing his son, LiAngelo Ball, from China. LiAngelo is eligible to enter the NBA Draft in 2018.

The charges against LiAngelo - and two other UCLA freshmen - were dropped, which is what reportedly has LaVar peeved over the suspension. The youngest brother, LaMelo Ball, 16, has verbally committed to playing for UCLA.

Looks like LiAngelo's career with the UCLA Bruins is over before it could officially begin.
