ESPN’s Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams were discussing what punishment UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill should receive following their shoplifting arrests in China.
The trio of Bruins returned home to the United States on Tuesday and are set to release their first public statements at a press conference on Wednesday.
But what will happen to the players after having their charges dropped overseas?
If you leave it up to Greenberg, the three freshmen would be suspended for the entire 2017-18 college basketball season. Greenberg went off after Williams suggested the punishment should be “a couple of games.”
Greenberg went on to add, “This is a dark cloud over their heads. That is an embarrassment to everyone involved! And let’s face it, let me ask you this, I’m sure they’re great kids, but they went to China, and they decided that was the first time they’re going to make a bad decision?”
It will be interesting to see what punishment will ultimately be handed down.
Do you think the UCLA trio should be given a season-long suspension? Or is that too harsh for the crime? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.
