Ohm Youngmisuk: LaVar Ball reiterated there’s no reason for him to thank President Trump in the case of his son, LiAngelo, and two other UCLA freshmen returning to the U.S. after being held in China for shoplifting. “You heard what he tweeted,” Ball said of Trump during an interview on CNN. “He tweeted because he is mad at me [that] I should have left their asses in jail. First of all, they weren’t in jail, they were in a hotel. How did they get into a hotel? Somebody had to do something. Did he do it? If he paid for the money to put up whatever we needed to do then I would say thank you. Did he do that?… He said he helped. How did he help? If he helped, I would say thank you… Do I think the president helped? I don’t know. I don’t care and I don’t know.” Ball did thank Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Filip Petrusev was selected with the 50th overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the recent NBA draft. Players in that selection range tend to be stashed outside the NBA and that is looking like the case for the young Serbian big. “We think Petrusev is someone who has a real chance to help us down the road,” explained 76ers president Daryl Morey, “He’ll likely start overseas and be someone who could come over later.”
Brown said four members of his staff who made the trip to Japan — which wound up being a 30-hour ordeal instead of the planned 10-hour flight, another issue that Metu blamed on a lack of organization — were never allowed in the Olympic village because of credential and paperwork issues “I don’t know why it is this way,” said Brown, who started a foundation earlier this year seeking financial help for the men’s basketball program.
