A day after LiAngelo Ball parted ways with UCLA, LaVar Ball blamed the Bruins' coaching staff for last month's shoplifting incident during a team trip to China. LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA players were detained on charges of stealing before their eventual release. "There's no accountability to them?" LaVar said of the coaches during an interview on CNN's "New Day" Tuesday morning. Without naming coaches, LaVar was critical of head coach Steve Alford and his staff for placing blame on the players — LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — and not taking more responsibility. LaVar said the coaches should have enforced stronger rules during the trip. "Let's stand up to bat (for the players) and say you're the coach," Ball told CNN. "Coaches are making enough money. They've gotta hold some accountability."
