I want yo thank the 3 players from UCLA who have absolutely embarrassed the entire US over such gross behavior in another country. If you were not covered by your status you'd be doing 3-5 years in a Chinese jail and deserved every minute of it. One kid drives a Ferrari and has the audacity to steal from others? What a grotesque form of human behavior ucla should kick their asses out of school and the ncaa should suspend them for atleast two years. A big time example needs to be made and followed through here

Cleveland having another meltdown
Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

I think we should wait until all details come out before forming and opinion.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/248028/Rick-Carlisle-On-Nerlens-Noel-DNP-Minutes-Have-To-Be-Earned

Nerlens Noel was a DNP-Coach's Decision in the Dallas Mavericks' 111-104 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rick Carlisle said Salah Mejri has earned playing time over Noel at this point.

"Look, minutes have to be earned," Carlisle said. "At this point, if it's between him and Salah, Salah has earned the minutes. There's no doghouse here. There just isn't. It's pretty simple: You compete, and if you earn minutes, you get minutes. And you've got to compete to keep them, because it's a competitive situation."

Noel said he wasn't bothered by sitting in the game and is trying to stay ready.

"I'm good, I'm good," Noel said. "I'm a very self-confident player. I know I can go in there and change games. When my number is called, I'll do just that and help some winning efforts. That's all my play style is about, is just winning. When I'm called on, I'll bring my winning effort."

Noel turned down a four-year, $70 million contract offer by the Mavericks this offseason.

While the Mavs may start thinking tank for Ayton. Wonder if the Knicks could get some quality assets from Dallas for Kanter.

I don’t think UCLA should treat this any different than if they had done the same in Beverly Hills.
As for Chinese shoplifting laws? Does their celebrity status lesson the penalty?
Nalod’s kids when over seas used to get a huge sit down before they left and got an earful from me about other countries laws, distain for U.S. citizens and not be gullible to put yourself in a bad situation. Serious damn business!

Make no mistake that Donald J. Trump is global embarrassment beyond anything LiAngelo Ball or his idiot father can muster.

Trump is funny dude making Reality show sequel to Idiocracy movie.
Shoplifting is not funny. It is psychiatric disease.
May be Ball family genetic problem sometimes manifesting in megalomania and sometimes in kleptomania...
Dudes need help and rehab not prosecution...

The general push/pull within the international basketball community, and by extension, the Olympics, probably has more to do with it.

From a political standpoint, this issue does ride into some actual political arenas, international sports is seen as a bridge to open up lines of dialogue and compromise. Thus international sports is sort of seen as a no go zone for means of power brokering at a political level. It's the same reason the US as a government tends to want to stay out of the realm of regulating professional sports here. It's good for the economy, it's good for the local population, it's good for general morale, you don't want to take the "escapism" element out of sports.

Sometimes the best methodology in a tense situation is to just laugh. Laugh really loud and walk away. This is what China and the US are doing here. Letting the normal media cycle wash this away.

Its a douchebag move on the part of these three players. LiAngelo Ball will spend the rest of his life looking like a piece of trash. What's actual "trust" worth in the world? You can't expect anything from women or children. But amongst men, your honor is often all you have to broker with the harsh world around you.

Since you came on this board you have been way off in regards to trade value. - Briggs 7/28/2015

They talked about this on Mike and Mike. Something happened where freshman football players stole another UCLA student's back pack in 2010. They were suspended for the season. But there was some speculation that because the youngest Ball is committed to UCLA that the University might not impose as harsh a penalty in this situation. Definitely worth keeping an eye on.

The kid is not that good, might serve to redshirt him and use this as a "Big Ball Brand" ethics thing?
Im mixed on this. The level of stupidity is beyond words. The very nature of amateur athletics and the code of ethics should be upheld but fact is we flushed this higher morality a long time ago and university athletics is a high priced cash machine!!
Given this, they will likely suspend the three and bring them back around the first of the year. My guess. My hope is something hard was pre negotiated:
One year of jail or one year suspension. Or expelled, but no jail. The kid loses a year of play. Better than Jail??? Everyone saves face.
The act of what they stole is minor but to me its such a level of disrespect to the team, the university, China, the citizens of China, Lavar, his wife, family and reeks of entitlement spoiled player. Short term this hurts BBB branding.

Should stupidity be punished?
Will it make all stupid smart and stop doing this sht? Not at all.
Will it make smart bad boys better... no way.
Its about law to be the same for everyone. Pure, reach, smart, stupid, talented, ordinary, celebs, average Joe, black, white, man , woman, etc.
If this will be some regular American kids not ballers? Will they root in Chinise prison for 10 years?
