    Didn't see the hit but heard the description on the car radio. Hope it's not serious, but it sounded bad.

    What a year of streaks for the Kings.

    Gaborik gets his 400th goal and Kopitar his 500th assist.

    It all comes down to Quickie and he has become streaky not coincidentally. Brad Stevens has been doing a great job and Dustin's re-emergence has been remarkable!! Of course the offensive shackles being removed from him has helped tremendously.

    The NFL owners have too much fucking money!!!! Goodell 40 million a year?????????

    When the Kings slumped it was because they stopped scoring goals. It’s really more that than Quick

    yeah, it's (never) not your fault, it's (always) somebody else's
    so go ahead and blame your (now former) teammates
    it was them, not you... you're a victim
    glad to see the apple didn't fall far from the tree (although i'm sure this was orchestrated by said tree)

    LiAngelo Ball’s shoplifting excuse: My teammates did it first
    by Joshua Rhett Miller | New York Post — 10 hours ago
    ball.png
    LiAngelo Ball is speaking out at length for the first time since his shoplifting arrest in China — and he is throwing his now-former UCLA teammates under the bus, claiming he was just following their lead during an incident last month.

    Ball confirmed on NBC’s “Today” show that he’s decided to leave UCLA after his indefinite suspension following the shoplifting arrest in China last month with fellow freshman teammates Jalen Hill and Cody Riley. The detained players were allowed to return to the United States after President Donald Trump said he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping and secured their release. Ball appeared on the show early Tuesday with his outspoken father, LaVar, and admitted to shoplifting, but only after others did first, he said.

    “We all went out one night, went to the malls, went to the Louis Vuitton store and, uh, people started taking stuff, and then, you know, me just not thinking and being with them, I took something too,” Ball said.

    Ball said he and his teammates then left, assuming they’d “just get away” without any repercussions, thousands of miles from their home.

    “And we left thinking we’ll just get away — you know how kids think,” Ball continued. “I didn’t realize ‘til I got back to my hotel, I’m like, ‘That was stupid.’ But by then it was too late. And then sure enough, the next morning, the police came and got us.”

    Ball spent the next day-and-a-half in jail, he said.

    “Oh, it was horrible,” he said of the conditions. “They take your clothes, you wear, like, whatever they have for you, a little jumpsuit or whatever, take your shoestrings and you just sit in a cement cell for however long. It’s just you and all the officers — and they don’t speak English.”

    Ball confirmed he wasn’t prepared to sit out several months before getting back on the hardcourt. UCLA is 7-1, about one-quarter of their way through the season, after opening with a victory in Shanghai against Georgia Tech.

    “Yeah, that’s the whole season, pretty much,” Ball said. “That’s just a long time of doing nothing. I’d rather be playing.”

    TMZ reported Monday that Ball’s father, LaVar, had decided to pull his son, a fringe NBA prospect, out of UCLA and off its basketball team because he considered the suspension unfair, particularly after the charges against him and the other players were dropped.

    “China already said, ‘OK, he made a bad mistake, we’re going to drop the charges.’ That’s the punishment they gave him,” said LaVar, who disputes Trump’s role in his son’s return home. “Now we over here — we gotta serve some more punishment? He apologized. What is the long process for? We only went to UCLA — one and done — to play basketball.”

    LaVar then promised to take matters into his own hands with LiAngelo, who had been expected to come off the bench for UCLA prior to his suspension. Ball’s eldest son, Lonzo, was selected No. 2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this year after leading UCLA to the Sweet 16.

    “I’m going to get Gelo in shape, we’re going to work him out, we’re going to do some other things and he’s going to be headed to the NBA,” he said.

    Regardless Lavar is 100% right

    The disciplinary process is being dragged out far longer than it should be. The institution should have some standardized process they have to rule on these types of matters.

    If you are investigating, fine. Let the player play until you have enough evidence to justify a ruling.

    If you have all the evidence, come out and make a ruling after following a fair process. You want to suspend him for the season, fine. But to have these players sit indefinitely with no word is stupid. At this point a quarter of the season is gone. I've seen theft, missing practice, domestic violence, accepting payments etc get away with less games.

    This hit probably changed the opening series against Vancouver.





    We were there for the double OT game winning tip in. I've never experienced anything like the reaction to that goal.

    Investigation is over. They are or were suspended indefinitely. They have earn their way back, basically. LiAngelo ain’t big baller enough to do it then adios. He can enjoy his career playing in rec leagues

    LaVar is a piece of shit.

    His son embarrassed UCLA and the USA by doing what he did. UCLA should have expelled all 3 of them as soon as they hit US soil.

    Don't let the door hit your stealing ass on the way out..

    LaVar is right? Really? This is what you get out of his knucklehead son stealing stuff in China, then blaming it on his teammates, and then his meathead father pulling him out because of the punishment....which I would say is appropriate. Fuck a timeline or certainty...what kind of certainty did five finger discount jerkoff give UCLA when he thought he was above the law?

    On top of that, he signs an agent for LiAngelo AND LaMelo....which makes both ineligible for NCAA play. What the fuck did LaMelo do to deserve this?

    LaVar is a fucking asshole with the IQ of an ice cube. He’s just a walking talking billboard.

    All billboards get papered over after awhile. Can’t wait for that to happen to this megalomaniac.
