Things to Know: LaVar Ball talks about Trump's help on CNN

LaVar Ball is not Le Var Burton

Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly told the New York Times that the President was instrumental in the players' release from China because he brought it up with the country's President Xi Jinping.

"Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal", he wrote. Trump blasted LaVar for not thanking him for helping his son and Snoop defended LaVar for not expressing gratitude.

On Monday, Ball appeared on CNN, where he spoke with Cuomo about Trump. "I would have said, 'Thank you kindly for that'". And you're the head of the U.S.? "I'm happy with how things were handled".

Donald Trump has a rather more important job.

LaVar Ball to President Trump on CNN: 'If you help, you shouldn't have to say anything'. "I had some people that had boots on the ground that knew the situation".

"Now, you might dislike what he's done, what he's said and who he is", Sharpe added.

This isn't the first time Burton has been confused with Ball.

"Everybody gets stuck on the negativity of some things and they get stuck on them too long". Somebody had to do something.

BALL: I'm telling you, somebody had to do something. "'Ungrateful you-know-what. I bet I won't help your ungrateful you-know-what again'".

BALL: I'm asking you, I'm asking you.

"If your son would have kept his sticky *ss fingers in his pockets and not take people's stuff in China, we wouldn't even be having this conversation". Did he do that? How did he help?

Shortly after, Trump tweeted, "Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?"

The reaction from social media was not unsurprising.

At a press conference upon their return to the United States, LiAngelo, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley did just that, as well as apologize for their actions overseas.

The players were questioned last week about allegedly stealing from three high-end stores, including sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before leaving for Shanghai to face Georgia Tech on Friday. Should he have thanked Trump? Without them, No. 23 UCLA lost to Creighton on Monday night in the Hall of Fame Classic.
