Big-mouth basketball dad LaVar Ball is pulling sticky fingered son LiAngelo out of UCLA.
The charges were eventually dropped, but the international incident turned into a total gong show after President Trump indicated he helped free the boys. Trump and LaVar Ball engaged in a public spat when Ball refused to thank the president for intervening.
Ball has maintained that his son’s lapse in judgement “ain’t that big a deal.” LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill apologized for their actions, admitted to shoplifting during the team’s season-opening trip to China and thanked Trump.

The three were suspended by the school and LaVar Ball is frustrated that the punishment has not been lifted yet.
“We are exploring other options with Gelo,” Ball told ESPN. “He’s out of there.”
