The trio of UCLA Bruins men’s basketball players that were arrested in China on shoplifting charges have touched down back in the United States.

The players were greeted by a wild crowd of paparazzi, with questions flying in their direction from every angle (Warning: Video contains some NSFW language):

Going forward, UCLA has not yet announced how they will handle the status of the players, one of whom is LiAngelo Ball, younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball.

The team’s next game comes on Wednesday night when it hosts Central Arkansas.

    Truly an epic failure on the parts of these kids to go over to China and act like fools, not represent themselves, their school, or America in a light becoming of young gentlemen in a foreign country. So disrespectful! But, Thank God they came home all in one piece, safe, and sound. I was so scared they might get the NORTH KOREA TREATMENT, and come back to America in comas, unable to move, speak, or comprehend. Either that or possibly, they could have been sentenced to prison in China. Thank the Lord for POTUS, Donald Trump. He is not the racist the liberal party and their media have viciously tried to make him out to be. Hopefully, African Americans remember him and what he did when the next round of elections occurs. As for the kids, a severe punishment will be handed down from the university or the NCAA if the university doesn’t handle this correctly. Their college careers are probably done. They’ll probably still be allowed to attend school to work on their degrees, but all three will probably try to turn pro next year anyway, either in the NBA or overseas, if any pro team overseas is willing to have them. Depending upon their skillsets, all could potentially be forgiven.
