I 'Should Have Left' UCLA Players In Jail Over Father's Comments

I 'Should Have Left' UCLA Players In Jail Over Father's Comments

President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. They went to jail, but were released on bail, which is something that apparently indicated the Chinese authorities were taking a rather chill approach to all of this to begin with.

"Don't tell me nothing", Ball said Friday on ESPN.

"What was he over there for? Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", Ball told ESPN.

Trump on Wednesday tweeted, "Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?".

LiAngelo and his teammates were arrested last Tuesday for allegedly shoplifting near the UCLA team's hotel in China, and there were rumors they could spend up to 10 years in prison.

"Who?" he said. "What was he over there for?"

After the players returned, Trump wondered on Twitter whether they would thank him for his intervention on their behalf.

Trump has said he raised the players' detention with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the leaders' recent meeting in Beijing. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"

Rowley Training Center on October 13, 2017 in Beltsville, Maryland.

Ball's comments, while not particularly gracious given the circumstances, once again proved no slight is too small to pierce the president's thin candy shell.

LaVar Ball, who has made a name for himself as a professional talker while attempting to build a brand around his three basketball playing sons, was in China during the week-long incident.

In actual college basketball news, Ball, Hill and Riley have been indefinitely suspended from the team. 'I'm happy with how things were handled. It sure looks like race baiting to a lot of people.

"Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes, '" Ball told ESPN.
