    President Trump isn’t the only American visiting Asia this week. College basketball teams UCLA and Georgia Tech were set to square off in the foreign country on Saturday in Shanghai. Now it is unclear what will happen to LiAngelo Ball and two other players who were detained for allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store.

    Ball's brother, Lonzo Ball, is already with the Los Angeles Lakers.

    LiAngelo’s father, La Var Ball, who made a name for himself while wildly marketing his son’s basketball talents and has been known to get into feuds with the likes of Charles Barkley, thought it was no big deal his son was arrested in China for stealing.

    LaVar Ball said it “ain’t that big a deal” and seemed to think the media was hyping the news of the charges. Sporting News claimed Ball was going to hold a press conference on Wednesday but was advised against it.

    In a longer statement, the father of the basketball superstar said, “It is a very unfortunate situation that the Ball Family, and UCLA has to deal with at this particular time. We will comment shortly.”

    The other two UCLA players with Ball who were detained by Chinese police in Hanzhou are Jalen Hill and Cody Riley. The UCLA freshmen could be sentenced to 3-10 years in prison if convicted of the charges. Their coach announced on Wednesday that they will not be playing in Saturday’s game against Georgia Tech.

    UCLA said that it is cooperating with local authorities and some experts have said that suspects in China can be held for up to a month or more before being properly indicted. The three were lucky to be released on bail; according to UCLA, they will be benched for Saturday’s game but the school did not comment on whether or not their actions will lead to them missing out on the entire season or getting expelled from the school.

        Just to catch you up, they've already decided the kids get 20 days of house arrest (hotel arrest since that's where they're staying) and not allowed to ever return to the country. That's it.

            Well this certainly ruins any chances the Balls have at a professional career in the Chinese basketball league.

              They're very lucky Chinese justice bend like reed for once. Those shoplifters in for 3-10 should go ballistic.

              Lavar has to be the worst sports dad in the universe. He is now clearly worse than Todd Marinovich's dad.

                    UCLA should be happy, they'll average at least 3 steals per game this year.

                      So the state of California won't let their colleges travel to Texas or North Carolina because of those states stances on transgender laws....but they'll let them travel to China where they kill you for sneezing......

                          Classic liberal hypocrisy.
                          What do you expect from people that develop their moral compass in Hollywood?

                            Could’ve been worse...at least it didn’t happen in North Korea.

                              The Balls are very lucky the stealing didn't take place in North Korea instead of China.

                              it's too bad UCLA has to put up with the father and sons. UCLA basketball should not give a flying f*** if either one of Lonzo balls little brothers ever played for them they don't need them.
