    Ball: I ‘didn’t get a thank you’ for shoes sent to president


    LaVar Ball, the father of a UCLA basketball player who was detained in China last month for shoplifting, says President Trump has not yet thanked him for the three pairs of “patriotic” shoes he sent the president.

    Ball on CNN’s “New Day” said Tuesday he sent the president three pairs of red, white and blue shoes to “show him that we’re patriotic,” but he “didn’t get a thank you.”

    “But I ain’t going to stress it out,” he added.

    His remarks come after Trump publicly lambasted Ball, calling him an “ungrateful fool” after he initially downplayed the president’s role in securing the release of his son, LiAngelo, from China, as well as two other players.
