LaVar Ball downplays Donald Trump's role in UCLA freshmen's release

Donald Trump

The three players returned to the United States Nov. 14 and apologized in a news conference the next day, admitting to shoplifting and thanking Trump for securing their return home.

"Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair", he said, referencing the flamboyant boxing promoter whom Trump once saluted as "a phenomenal person" despite a conviction for manslaughter.

Trump tweets wondering whether the three players will thank him for his assistance in releasing them from their detention in China.

In response to LaVar Ball's comments, Trump tweeted Sunday that he should've left the UCLA players in jail.

The feud between Trump and LaVar Ball ignited after three UCLA basketball players - Ball's son LiAngelo, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley - were arrested for shoplifting from three stores in Hangzhou, China, while the team was overseas, according to USA Today.

It's almost Thanksgiving and President Donald Trump is tweeting about gratitude.

"Not only is it racially coded, and more or less visibly and intentionally, but I think it is also. kind of another way that Trump uses Twitter and other things and sports in particular to distract from other issues", Hartman said. Unlike his supporters, Trump threw his shade at the right LaVar.

Trump said in September that his criticism of the players "has nothing to do with race", rather it's about "respect for our country, flag and national anthem".

LaVar Ball goes on CNN to discuss Trump's most recent comments. Instead, Hhe ended the interview by saying, "Tell Donald Trump to have a great Thanksgiving because Big Baller is". "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out". Ball continues to downplay Trump's role in the process.

The president continued: "Just think LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no National Basketball Association contract to support you".

LaVar Ball - A cast member on a Facebook reality show called "Ball in the Family".

But now with Trump blasting LaVar in the media for not thanking him for getting LiAngelo back from China. "It's a really big deal, especially in China", he wrote.

In the interview, Ball explains, "I don't have to go around saying "thank you" to everybody".
