LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball exploring options to play professionally overseas

LaMelo, LiAngelo Ball exploring options to play professionally overseas

According to LaVar, whose eldest son Lonzo Ball has been collecting bricks for the Big Baller Mansion during his rookie season with the Los Angeles Lakers, LiAngelo will instead focus on preparing for the National Basketball Association draft.

One day after removing his middle son, LiAngelo, from UCLA, LaVar Ball spoke to Today's Natalie Morales about the decision, LiAngelo's arrest in China and his highly publicized feud with President Donald Trump.

Ball, and fellow players Cody Riley and Jalen Hill admitted trying to steal from three different stores at a mall across from a hotel in Hangzhou, China while the team was in the country to play Georgia Tech last month.

LaVar Ball told ESPN that he has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA.

LaVar Ball said that he has yet to inform the UCLA coaching staff that he is pulling LiAngelo. If the players returned sooner, and the NCAA later decided they were ineligible, UCLA could be forced to forfeit games the players appeared in. You wear whatever they have for you, like a little jumpsuit. "You know how kids think", he added.

Hatfield NatWest bank to close down
The Royal Bank of Scotland has announced 259 branches will be closing nationally, but none are in Worcestershire. However, a spokesman for RBS International in Jersey said there are no plans to close any local branches.

While all three basketball players thanked Trump at a news conference once they were back on US soil, LaVar Ball has played down Trump's role in bringing them home, prompting furious tweets from the president.

Ball told ESPN he hasn't decided where LiAngelo will play this season. They take your shoestrings.

"I'm going to make him way better for the draft that UCLA ever could have", Ball told ESPN's Darren Rovell. While at least one mid-major college basketball program had invited LiAngelo to transfer to it, Ball told ESPN that they were not interested in such a move. "That's why I gave him the shoes". Ball and the other players thanked Trump-a bit too slowly for the president's liking-but Ball's father LaVar remains adamant that the president's desire for gratitude was unseemly. Trump and LaVar Ball publicly feuded after the latter said the president did not deserve credit for intervening to get his son released. "That's just a long time of doing nothing - I'd rather be playing".

Ball also insists that eventually, LiAngelo and LaMelo will both join Lonzo on the Lakers. "Watch how I do this".

"I ain't got no fallback plan", LaVar said. "I'm 100 in. So I never get stopped".
