Him and two UCLA teammates got busted for giving themselves a five finger discount at a Louis Vutton store.  Now they may remain in China for months.  How stupid can you be??

I get being immature and doing dumb things. I don't ever get doing that in foreign countries.

This is the first time Lavar has managed to keep his big mouth shut, at least for the most part.

This is the first evidence I've seen that Papa Ball has an ounce of common sense in his head... Hopefully this means that someone with some knowledge of international relations got to Lavar and told him "This is not a media opportunity, and those are not celebrities on the other side to play with. It's the fucking Chinese government, and any word you say about them that isn't 100% polite and respectful will be paid for, in full, by your son."

Depending on the value of the sunglasses stolen it could be either a fine, or a couple years in jail.

The value of the sunglasses is irrelevant.  The punishment will be whatever the Chinese govt feels gives them the best diplomatic leverage.

I wonder what the author of the art of the deal gave the Chinese in exchange.

The author of that book wasn't involved in this situation... Wink

Yes.  They could go with the high values on the sunglasses to bump it up to the more severe penalty if they want.

Iím sure itís a lot less than what Obama gave up for Bowe Bergdahl or what he gave Iran.

I would hope that some idiots caught shoplifting in a repressive country would be way cheaper than captured soldiers in a war zone. And even then the soldiers would be more worth it.

According to reports, that's exactly what happened.

Yeah, that wasn't really a difficult "between the lines" read. Grin
