LaMelo Ball looking to play overseas

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin left pokes the puck away from Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle during the third period of an NHL hockey game in Los Angeles

Then he carried on with practice.

Ball's sudden departure is just the latest in a string of early-season distractions for the Bruins. "People will look up and they say, 'Wow, how'd they all get on the Lakers?'"

"It was terrible", LiAngelo Ball said of his experience in the Chinese jail.

Alford indicated last week that he expected the fate of the three suspended players to be resolved in the near term.

LiAngelo Ball, seen during the press conference November 15 where he and two UCLA teammates apologized for shoplifting in China, has reportedly been pulled from the school by his father.

With LaVar Ball yanking his son out of college in the classic, "this isn't going my way so I'm taking my ball and going home", move, there are surely parents throwing their hands up in the air filled with anger and disgust.

Meanwhile, your youngest son, LaMelo, a seventh-ranked prospect in the 2019 class, is still committed to UCLA for basketball and will now likely never step foot on campus. Head coach Steve Alford is at right.

LiAngelo Ball said he spent "a day and a half or something like that" in a Chinese jail.

It was announced this week that Ball has withdrawn from UCLA in part because of a perceived unfair treatment from the university in the wake of his overseas arrest for shoplifting. LiAngelo, who LaVar Ball recently pulled from UCLA, and LaMelo Ball want to play together internationally.

Ball, along with fellow freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, were indefinitely suspended for their participation in the shoplifting incident during the Bruins' trip to China last month.

UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball is surrounded by reporters and photographers as he leaves Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, in Los Angeles.

The UCLA basketball player recounted the experience that he deemed as "horrible" as Chinese authorities came to their hotel and arrested them. You could argue that LiAngelo Ball not wanting to attend college for anything other than basketball is no different from another student who has his heart set on a certain career.

The problem at this exact moment, though, is that in order to entice any National Basketball Association teams to give LiAngelo and LaMelo a look, LaVar is going to have to find somewhere for both of them to play in the near future. Dan MacMedan, USA TODAY Sports LaMelo Ball brings the ball up during the Big Ballers vs. Compton Magic game on May 27.

"They had him there just to use the Ball family name".

"We get back over here, and the consequences were even stiffer than China". "We left thinking we would just get away, you know how kids think". "We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future". In usual Trump fashion, he took to Twitter once again to accept their apology, telling them to "give a big thank you to President Xi Jinping".

Alford noted since returning to the United States, Ball has been a model citizen at school.

"We are exploring other options with Gelo", LaVar Ball said on Monday.

Why not, he was asked. "I didn't make that decision".

I don't blame them.
