LiAngelo Ball and two of his UCLA teammates were allowed to return home to Los Angeles after being arrested for shoplifting in China. The whole sordid saga has been embarrassing for UCLA and the basketball program, and Ball needs to be kicked off the team. Still, Ball is just a kid who made a mistake, and shoplifting shouldn’t carry such a harsh penalty. What do you think? 🏀

LiAngelo Ball may have a famous father and NBA brother, but that doesn't mean he should get any special treatment. Ball was representing his team, and his country, in China. He embarrassed both and deserves to get kicked off the basketball team.

People are acting like Ball murdered someone. Just because he has an obnoxious dad and famous brother, people want him to fail. There are players who stay on their university teams after beating their domestic partners, and yet Ball deserves to be expelled? Please. Leave him alone.
