We’ve all heard that old proverb “what goes around comes around” meaning “if someone treats other people badly he or she will eventually be treated badly by someone else.”
Well, it seems like LaVar Ball and his son LiAngelo might actually be experiencing that old proverb after the older Ball acted like an ungrateful fool towards President Trump back in November when Ball’s son and two others were caught stealing high-end sunglasses and other items in China.
The president happened to be on an Asiatic trip when word came through the State Department that three American athletes were in custody, the president decided to intervene successfully securing the release of the three young USLA athletes.
However rather then being grateful that his son LiAngelo along with two others was released, perhaps avoiding as much as10-years in prison if convicted, LaVar decided to act like an ungrateful fool stating publicly after the release “everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” The “he” of course was President Trump.
The president upon hearing the ungrateful remark responded through a tweet that he “should have left them in jail.”
UCLA ended up suspending LiAngelo for the rest of the season as a result of the shoplifting incident, which infuriated LaVar to the point where he pulled his son out of the prestigious college, and his younger son out of high school and packing them off overseas to play professionally in Lithuania.
However, “what goes around comes around” and this is one of those stories where old proverbs sometimes do come true.
LaVar had hoped that his sons pro debut in Lithuania against the Lietkabelis Panevezys, would vindicate his stupid childish move of pulling his son out of college, however, just the opposite happened as neither of the Ball brothers scored a single point. Moreover, the hapless two went a combined 0-for-7 from the floor, and their team “BC Prienai lost 95-86.
Do you think LaVar Ball is a lousy role-model for his sons?
