ESPN, by Jeff Goodman

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/5/2017 11:10:27 AM

LaVar Ball told ESPN that he has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA. "We are exploring other options with Gelo," LaVar Ball said on Monday. "He´s out of there." "I´m going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have." LaVar Ball LiAngelo Ball, a freshman, is one of three UCLA basketball players who were indefinitely suspended after a shoplifting incident in China in November. Ball, the middle Ball brother, did not play a single game in college after being suspended from the team -- along with teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill. "I´m not

For pity sakes, isn´t little LiAngelo an adult who can make up his own mind? Why is it daddy who pulled him out of the university?

At least he is being honest.

Education means NOTHING to these people. All college is to them is the minor leagues for their sport. Go get some TV time and experience before leaving as soon as possible for the pros.

And daddy is a perfect example of the type of idiocy that comes from that mindset.

It’s not about being college material. These athletes are not rocket scientists. They don’t receive scholarships for their academic ability.

That said, apparently LiAngelo was not a prime candidate for the NBA before the shoplifting in China. And #3 son may have been disqualified from college program because his name is on one of Daddy’s line of shoes…

LaVar is not as smart as he thinks he is. Sounds as though UCLA is sick of the entire Ball family.

Dear (College of your choice),

My son, Jello, would like to spend a year or two at your school in order to prepare himself for a career in the NBA. His honesty and integrity have suffered from a case of Chinese stereotyping and he isn´t the brightest kid in the world but he would like to take up Space. His previous choice of major is unimportant because we all know he is a natural for Party Studies we understand that African Studies is no doubt filled to capacity. Please consider him for the Fall, 2018 semester to give him time to regrow his Eraserhead hair style.

Thanks Bro,
LaVar Ball

And I´m pretty sure that by saying he´s exploring looking at contracts with overseas teams, he has forfeited his college eligibility. And basketball coaches across the land said "Whew"

I´m so tired of illiterate black "athletes" roaming the college halls! Try getting a higher education first!!!

Eliminate sports from college and designate college for what it was intended--HIGHER EDUCATION!!!

Tell all of the ghetto illegitimate children that they will no longer get big money for running up and down with a "ball"...

To some that may seem extreme...too bad.

I am so sick of these 73% illegitimate children getting so much money for playing with a ball!!! They´re not there to learn, to be smart, they´re there for a big cash handout from the NBA/NFL cabal of asshats!

These families of these athletic illegitimate´s are waiting for the cash handout, much like gambling or playing the lottery....Get a career!!!

LaVar Ball is a jerk....Trump was right!

FTA: "I´m not sitting back and waiting," LaVar Ball told ESPN. "He wasn´t punished this bad in China ... We get back over here, and the consequences were even stiffer than China. So basically they´re in jail here."

His son wasn´t punished in China -- they weren´t done with him yet when Trump intervened on his behalf. This moron ... well, words fail.

Nice to have dreams Mr. Ball. Maybe if you had done your duty by your son, he would not have gotten into trouble in the first place.

What decent parent torpedoes his kid´s future like this guy is doing? Denying him an education, and then killing his career changes as well. The NBA has to be watching what is going on right now with the NFL and fans, and if they are smart, they are doing something to avoid that in their own sport.

What team with any intelligence is going to want to take on the interfering circus that would come with signing on that kid?

All that academic work down the drain; all that midnight oil burned in vain.

It always seemed that masculine icon (in his own mind) LaVar Ball (whose certain sperm "don´t put out no girls") didn´t see much need in academic achievement for his sons, who were all destined for the NBA. Until they weren´t.

My father, whose two sons both gravitated to athletics played in public, supported us to the hilt, but from afar, and let us and our coaches work out the details. (Mostly, we learned everything on our own.) I´ve seen some over-concerned fathers turn their sons´ lives into a slice of hell on earth by trying to micromanage everything. One day after a match I heard a father yell to his son (whom I had beaten 2-1), "Why did you hit that 2-iron on #8?" The father got in his car and screeched off. I went to my fellow competitor who appeared about ready to cry, and said, "You hit the right club on #8. A PGA Tour player wouldn´t have had an easy time of it from there. Don´t let him get you down."

The roommate is probably wondering where his sunglasses and watch are.

If young Jello doesn´t get picked up by an NBA team, it´s because they´re racist. (Ask Kaepernick!)

I see this as a win for everyone - UCLA who no longer has to put up with the father - the other players whose suspensions will probably be shorter now that LiAngelo is now no longer at UCLA. The entire UCLA basketball team and all their opponents who won´t have to put up with questions. And LiAngelo who can find out soon if he is cut out for the NBA. There is always someone bigger in the NBA - and someone with a bigger mouth - LiAngelo will have to succeed or fail on his ability.

And yes this reminded me of that classic teacher name legend of the twins named OrAnge´jello and LeMon"jello - though I don´t think it is true I have had several colleagues swear to me that their aunt, sister, or mother had a friend who had a friend who taught those twins.

Child abuse?
If the two younger Balls are not NBA material, then he should have kept them @ UCLA to get a degree. But this father does not value education.

We see numerous "one and done´s" who squander their lives and their potential when they could play 4 years, get a degree and possibly All American status and a large NBA contract in the end. It´s pretty stupid.

One of the more obvious things about the Trump economy is how much better it is than the Obama economy. Yet incredibly, President Obama, as if jealously looking on at this night-and-day difference, is trying to claim credit for it. From the Washington Times: Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth.

Jerry Brown is at it again. Blaming Californians for the devastating series of California wildfires month, he went Full Moonbeam and declared the problem a function of global warming, calling it a new normal about which nothing is to be done. As if wildfires that sweep away homes in California´s unique Mediteranean microclimates have never happened before this past week. Compare and contrast to President Trump´s gracious tweet on the matter, which was the classy thing to say: Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of California’s wildfires.

LOS ANGELES – A flare-up on the western edge of Southern California´s largest and most destructive wildfire sent residents fleeing Sunday, as wind-fanned flames churned through canyons and down hillsides toward coastal towns. Crews with help from water-dropping aircraft saved several homes as unpredictable gusts sent the blaze churning deeper into foothill areas northwest of Los Angeles that haven´t burned in decades. New evacuations were ordered in Carpinteria, a seaside city in Santa Barbara County that has been under fire threat for days. "The winds are kind of squirrely right now," said county fire spokesman Mike Eliason. "Some places the smoke is

After more than a decade of studying wildfires, San Diego County took its final exams last week. Did we pass? Authorities say the region is far better equipped to handle swift, wind-whipped flames than it was during the firestorms of 2007 and ’03. “We’re about $460 million more prepared,” Supervisor Dianne Jacob said Friday, “both on the ground and in the air.” Officials cited better communication between fire agencies; more fire engines and air tankers on the front lines, day and night; and better tracking of the flames. Despite these advances, the Lilac Fire’s first 24 hours consumed 4,100 acres

Update (1:30 p.m.) - California Governor Jerry Brown says deadly and destructive wildfires in winter are "the new normal." Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, Brown said drought and climate change mean California faces a "new reality" where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

North County’s Lilac wildfire is now 20 percent contained as firefighters focus on hotspots and embers that could ignite islands of vegetation the fire hasn’t yet scorched. Many residents forced to evacuate continue to wait for permission to return home, with firefighting officials saying they’re reluctant to let residents go back because they could be forced to evacuate again if fires flare up. Some of the crews that worked overnight to suppress the 4,100-acre blaze are getting relief from new crews scheduled to join the effort this morning.

Accustomed to the highly-regimented life of the racetrack, hundreds of thoroughbreds frantically galloped together Thursday trying to escape the blazing Lilac wildfire. Terrified, the speedsters stampeded through Bonsall’s San Luis Rey Downs horse-training facility, whinnying, rolling their eyes and thundering through thick smoke as the fire quickly consumed the barns where they had spent the morning serenely munching hay. The fire arrived at the sprawling 500-stall complex on Camino Del Rey about one mile east of Highway 76 a bit before 2 p.m., causing ever-more-frantic public address system calls to

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Frank Luntz, a GOP establishment messaging consultant, was visibly flabbergasted as every single one of his focus group participants in a Birmingham area Vice News-produced panel backed Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By

Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
