LaVar Ball pulls son LiAngelo out of UCLA after suspension


This afternoon, TMZ broke the story that the nation's most notorious sports dad, LaVar Ball, had pulled LiAngelo from UCLA.

Following the shoplifting incident, LiAngelo Ball has been serving an indefinite suspension at UCLA and hasn't been allowed to play, practice or travel with the team.

In November, UCLA teammates Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were benched and subsequently suspended indefinitely after being released on bail following an alleged shoplifting incident in China.

LiAngelo, who was in his freshman season with the Bruins, never played a game for UCLA and is now suspended indefinitely from the team.

"I told my boys that one of them wasn't going to make it".

His outspoken father LaVar Ball is reportedly yanking him out of UCLA as a student and an athlete amid the scandal of him stealing from four high-end stores in China a few weeks ago. But even without a landing spot, Lavar feels he can prepare LiAngelo for the National Basketball Association better than a college team can.

Meanwhile the oldest Ball brother, Lonzo, 20, is struggling during his rookie season with the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 8.7 points, on 31.3 percent shooting from the field, and seven assists per game.

While Ball made it clear in his public remarks following his return to the United States that he was grateful for the president's assistance, the situation escalated when LaVar Ball publicly questioned how much help the president had actually delivered.

"I haven't told any of those guys,"Lavar told ESPN". And his latest move has him pulling another one of his sons from school.
