Trump’s very public acknowledgement of his own role, though, started a war nba 2k20 mt of words with LaVar, the voluble Ball family patriarch, through the media. “Who?” Ball had retorted to ESPN ’s Arash Markazi on Sunday when asked about Trump’s self-proclaimed involvement in LiAngelo’s release. “What was he over there [in China] for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” Trump hit back on Sunday, tweeting that LaVar was, “Unaccepting” of his help and that he, “Should have left them [the U.C.L.A. players] in jail.”
LaVar responded on Monday in a typically pugnacious interview with CNN. “If I feel nobody did anything; I don’t have to go around saying thank you to everybody,” he told Chris Cuomo. “Just because people say things [doesn’t mean] it’s supposed to be true. ‘Hey, I stopped them from [doing 10 years in prison]. Maybe we were doing some talking with some other people before [Trump] even got there.”
Eight minutes after likening LaVar to Don King, Trump sent a follow-up tweet calling the founder of the ‘Big Baller Brand’ an “Ungrateful fool.” “ LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you,” Trump wrote. “But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!”
LaVar’s eldest son, the quiet and reserved Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo nba 2k20 buy mt Ball, had eight points and 13 rebounds on Tuesday night as Luke Walton’s team beat the Bulls 103-94 at Staples Center.
