LiAngelo Ball leaving UCLA is the best news Bruins could have gotten

After spending several weeks uncomfortably marinating in international embarrassment, the UCLA basketball team has finally received some good news.

The Bruins are getting out of the Ball business.

In an interview with The Times on Monday, LaVar Ball confirmed that he is pulling middle son LiAngelo from school because he is unhappy with how LiAngelo has been treated after he and two teammates admitted shoplifting during UCLA’s season-opening trip to China.

LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have been suspended indefinitely amid a clamor — including from this space — that they should be suspended for the season. Hey Dan Guerrero, are you going to pull the plug or not?
