UCLA coach Alford surprised by LiAngelo Ball leaving school

"LiAngelo has been, since coming back (from China), he's been tremendous". I think it was more, maybe, "surprised.' If you're looking for one word, maybe it's 'surprised" because it's nothing that we saw coming.

LiAngelo Ball did not play in any of the Bruins' eight games this season after being suspended indefinitely by UCLA for his involvement in a shoplifting incident during the team's season-opening trip to China.

"I don't feel sorry for myself", LiAngelo Ball said during Wednesday, Nov. 15's news conference at UCLA.

Ball and his father LaVar appeared on morning news shows Tuesday, including the Today Show and CNN, detailing the shoplifting scandal that started in Hangzhou, China and eventually expanded into President Donald Trump's Twitter timeline.

The famed UCLA men's basketball program flew overseas to Shanghai, China to kick off their 2017-2018 season. And given the embarrassment the arrested players caused the team, school, and in some ways, the United States, UCLA probably had no other choice but to make sure it was a long suspension. "I'm at Pauley (Pavilion) every day".

Transportation, public safety and affordable housing are among the most pressing challenges facing the city's new mayor. A win for Bottoms would continue a run for African-American mayors that began with Maynard Jackson in the mid-1970s.

"The Lakers should build around Lonzo", LaVar Ball said. Ball, Hill and Riley publicly apologized for shoplifting while reading prepared statements at a campus news conference on November 15. The other part of me thinks he is a insane dad who clearly loves his sons but does not know how to conduct his love for them in a socially acceptable way.

"That's a long time of doing nothing", LiAngelo told NBC's "Today" on Tuesday of his suspension at UCLA. "It's just you and the officers and they don't speak English". This tweet confronting Ball came only days after Trump called out the three players, demanding a thank you for what he did for them.

Trump tweeted after the three players returned to the USA, taking the credit for their safe return and taking shots at Ball for being ungrateful. His brother Lonzo played one season with the Bruins before being drafted No. 2 by the Lakers. This after LaVar pulled 16-year-old LaMelo from high school earlier this fall so he could focus on professional aspirations as well.

"I'm going to get Gelo in shape, I'm going to work him out, we're going to do some other things and he's going to be headed to the National Basketball Association", the elder ball said.

LaVar told "Access Hollywood" he sent Trump three pairs of Big Baller shoes in red, white and blue.
