Trump tweeted on Sunday: "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".
"I can assure you even the people that dislike President Trump the most would agree that LaVar Ball is wrong in this situation".
"Skip, you and I, we speak very highly of LaVar, but that was the dumbest thing he ever could have said", Sharpe told his co-host Skip Bayless.
It's a problem that we are in a media climate where any publication or network-including me here at The Nation-would have gladly taken that interview with LaVar Ball on Tuesday night (although CNN is milking this to a degree that is stomach churning).

Burton responded to those confusing him for Ball: "One of many sleights I am having to endure these days", he wrote before tagging Ball. "I'm just kidding. President "what's his name" took the bait, tweeting", Colbert continued as he began to read Trump's tweet directed to Ball. LaVar Ball has refused to thank Trump. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out". "He probably got to China by falling through the center of the Earth and popping out the other side". The elder Mr Ball, however, made it clear that he did not feel indebted to Mr Trump in an interview with ESPN. When first asked about the president's involvement in his son's release, Ball simply replied, "Who?" Donald will say what he needs to stay in PR, in the mindset and be talked about - so does LaVar. Then I would have said, "thank you Mr. Trump, for taking my boys out of China and bringing them back to the U.S.' There's a lot of room on that plane".
He also referenced Trump's attacks on Sen. I don't know. I don't know.
And Ball knew exactly what to do to get a reaction from Trump.
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 are also prohibited from suiting up, sitting on the bench for home games and traveling with the team.
