‘Football vision’ as important as ball skills, experts reveal

Learning to read the game is as important to young footballers as kicking a ball. A new study, which highlighted Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard as stars who incorporated the technique into their gameplay, calls on coaches to spend more time training young players to scan the field and less on ball skills.

LiAngelo Ball left his JBA seat after seeing the Lakers drafted Svi Mykhailiuk over him

LiAngelo Ball’s hopes of hearing his named called during the NBA draft never came to fruition nor did he find a spot on an NBA Summer League roster. But despite heading into the draft with tempered expectations, the middle Ball brother was optimistic the Lakers would ultimately draft him. The latest episode of Ball in the Family detailed that draft night for LiAngelo. LaVar had scheduled his JBA league opener to coincide with the NBA draft, so LiAngelo was in the crowd to support his brother, LaMelo.

The Cubs Hooked Up This Little Kid After Someone Took His Foul Ball

A gentleman appeared to help himself to a baseball intended for a young kid at a Chicago Cubs game on Saturday night.

Outfielder and first base coach Will Venable threw the ball to a small kid with a great seat during the Cubs-Cardinals doubleheader game, which the Cubs won handily.

But it wasn’t an easy catch for the boy, and the ball dropped under his feet and into the hands of a fan in the row behind him, who scooped it up and flaunted the ball in the air with great celebration.

Not to worry though: the team tweeted that the boy received not one but two baseballs used in the game. They even saw to it that Javy Baez signed them.

It certainly looked like that Cubs-fans-steals-ball-from-a-kid scenario. But for those who criticized the widely circulated ball-scooping move, David Kaplan of Sports Talk Live said that the guy seen in the video helped the kid catch a foul ball earlier in the game.

This is not the first time an errant piece of sports equipment has appeared to have been wrongfully snatched from its intended fan in a viral video. Puck girl forever.

Chris Hemsworth dancing to Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” (which may or may not be about his brother) is a gift

Hi, hello there. Having a particularly long week? Stressed that it’s somehow only Thursday? We here at HelloGiggles feel you. That’s why, on this blessed day, we’re gifting you video footage of Chris Hemsworth dancing to his future sister-in-law Miley Cyrus’ breakup anthem, “Wrecking Ball” with his three children in their living room. Because we all deserve to see the Hemsworth family dog bewildered by insane dancing.

Sure, Chris is known for his tough-guy Thor muscles and for wielding superhero powers, but the man has some seriously sweet dance moves, and it’s everything we never knew we needed in life. He shared the  hilarious video to his Twitter account, and we’re thanking Odin he did. (Again, the best part? Probably the dog. But also maybe the kids. Actually no — we love EVERYTHING about this equally).

While it’s never been officially confirmed, it’s widely speculated that Miley wrote “Wrecking Ball” after her temporary breakup with Chris’s younger brother, Liam. But it seems there’s no awkwardness here, because Chris tagged his baby bro and future sister-in-law in the video.

And how did Miley feel about older bro Chris hitting peak dad status by breaking it down to one of her most iconic songs? She loved it, of course, sharing the clip to her Twitter page, red heart emojis all around.

And because it is Thursday, we’ll bless you again, this time with a throwback clip of Chris showing off his moves on Season 5 of Australia’s Dancing with the Stars, which, coincidentally, aired just as “Wrecking Ball” hit number one on the charts.

And in case you’re still in need of a throwback moment today, here’s the “Wrecking Ball” video, which still hits us right in the feels.

If his career as an Avenger ever fizzles, at least we know Chris has some impressive dance skills to fall back on…and Miley’s got no shortage of hits for him to break it down to.

Cricket Players Caught Tampering With the Ball. Welcome to ‘Sandpapergate.’

It’s a dark day for cricket in Australia. A trio of players have been caught out on camera tampering with a ball in the midst of a match against South Africa, an incident now dubbed “Sandpapergate.” And fans are both flabbergasted and saddened that their beloved sport is now the site of national scandal.

In a video captured of “fielder” Cameron Bancroft, Bancroft can be seen attempting to affix a piece of grit-coated tape to the ball that will be thrown to a “batsman.” He then disposes of the tape in his pants. The point of the tape trick was to change the trajectory of the ball in the air, unbalancing it and making it more difficult to hit. But when he realized that he was being filmed, Bancroft said, he “panicked” and stuck it down his waistband.

Unfortunately, the cameras were still rolling. Team captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Bancroft have all apologized for their behavior, and are being disciplined by Cricket Australia with suspensions from play. Even Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was moved to comment on the scandal.

“It seemed completely beyond belief that the Australian cricket team had been involved in cheating,” Turnbull said. “After all, our cricketers are role models and cricket is synonymous with fair play. How can our team be engaged in cheating like this? It beggars belief.”

The Australians lost to the South Africans by 322 points, too.

The 6 Best ‘DBZ’ Anime Showdowns in ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fantastic fighting game. With Arc System Works‘ extremely accessible fighting engine, anyone can pick it up and enjoy it. If you are a fan of Dragon Ball Z, you are rewarded for your deep knowledge of some of the anime’s most famous battles. If you select or defeat specific fighters on specific stages, you are treated to dramatic intros and dramatic finishes.

These action sequences are pulled right from the Dragon Ball Z anime, allowing you to recreate some of the more iconic moments from the popular show.

We thought it’d be fun to delve a bit deeper into the history of these encounters, and Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s interpretations.

Yamcha Falls to Nappa and the Saibamen


Dragon Ball
RIP Yamcha.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Yamcha is a beast of a character, a fantastic fighter and a handful to deal with. During Dragon Ball Z, not so much. Throughout the Vegeta Saga, Nappa’s Saibamen prove too much for the Wolf Fang Fist enthusiast. With a Saibaman’s last act, it grasped Yamcha and detonates itself, killing both fighters in the process.

To recreate this (are you a Saibaman?) in Dragon Ball FighterZ, defeat Yamcha using Nappa on the Rocky Fields stage. As a bonus, if you defeat Nappa using Yamcha on the Rocky Fields stage, Yamcha gets his sweet revenge. He fires the kamikaze Saibaman into Nappa before he explodes, taking the two evil aliens out.

Trunks Obliterates Frieza


Trunks gives Frieza the old chop, chop.

Frieza was the boogyman (alien?) of earlier Dragon Ball Z sagas. His defeat at the hands of a pretty upset Super Saiyan Goku left him all kinds of dead and upset. Frieza returned during the Trunks Saga with all-new metal parts and a chip on his shoulder. However, Future Trunks made quick work of the purple-headed menace, slashing him to bits and vaporizing his remains.

Now you can vaporize his remains too. Playing as Trunks, defeat Frieza on the Rocky Fields stage. No more Frieza!

Goku Destroys Buu With the Spirit Bomb


Kid Buu failing to catch the Spirit Bomb.
Kid Buu failing to catch the Spirit Bomb.

The Kid Buu Saga closed out the Dragon Ball Z anime with a bang. The tantrum-throwing, embodiment of all anger and evil known as Kid Buu met his match at the hands of the entire world, if we want to get technical. With Goku as their weapon, the citizens of a whole planet feed a Spirit Ball large enough to dispatch the pink demon once and for all.

To see this legendary ending in Dragon Ball FighterZ, lend your energy to Goku as well and defeat Kid Buu on the Sacred World of the Kai stage.

Gohan Single-Handedly Defeats Cell


See, Gohan is using a single hand. Get it?

Gohan had the honor of being the first Saiyan to achieve Super Saiyan 2 during the Cell Games. After witnessing the death of gentle giant Android 16, Gohan transformed and proceeded to whoop the green tail of the perfect Cell. After a long-fought battle, and a pretty severe arm injury, Gohan was able to defeat Cell with a one-handed Kamehameha.

Lend teen Gohan a hand and defeat Cell on the Cell Games Arena stage to see this dramatic finish.

Gohan Turns Super Saiyan 2


Teen Gohan ascends to Super Saiyan 2.

Sadly, Gohan’s ascension to Super Saiyan 2 was bittersweet given he had to watch Android 16 die to complete his transformation. On the plus side, he became super strong in the process which is all that Saiyans seem to care about throughout Dragon Ball Z.

To witness this transformation in Dragon Ball FighterZ, select Gohan and Cell as starters on the Cell Games Arena stage.

Goku Turns Super Saiyan for the First Time


Goku, the original Super Saiyan.

One of the most famous moments in Dragon Ball Z anime history was the first time Goku ascended to Super Saiyan status. After watching Frieza annihilate his best friend, Krillin, Goku was overcome with grief and sorrow. His heightened emotional state triggered his transformation into the legendary Super Saiyan.

To watch this all unfold in the game, select Goku and Frieza as starters on the Namek stage.

We also have a video with all of these encounters, which you can watch here.

How to Beat Button Mashers in ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’

With the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ, it’s now easier than ever to feel amazing in a fighting game. What could have been just a case of fan service is actually an incredibly decent fighter with technical depths for the pros and an inviting skill floor that lets newcomers fight flashy.

Of course with the ability to create 30-hit combos with one press of one button, there also comes the mentality that one could just mash buttons to victory. Mashing buttons is still fun in this game, and that’s okay.

It’s possible to do more as a button masher in Dragon Ball FighterZ, but the same rule still applies — if you learn the game, you’ll win.

We’ve put together a few different methods to take down that button masher in your life. They take some time to learn, but they’ll reliably get you that sweet, joyful victory that comes from downing someone who took the lazy option.

Meaties

A “meaty” attack is something you do when you’ve had the opponent on the ropes, the combo ends, and you want to launch straight into another one.

You can do this by learning how much time it takes to perform your starting attack, and then timing that attack so it hits just as the enemy exits their invulnerable status.

This is what it looks like:

 
If you can get good at these timings, it’s brutal. A button-mashing enemy won’t know what hit them. They’ll think it’s luck — luck that somehow always favours you.

It effectively forces the opponent to block. If they don’t, they’ll learn quite quickly.

Once they’re blocking, you can try breaking their guard with an overhead attack or Dragon Rush.

Recoveries

Here’s a little secret about combos in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Some combos are actual combos, whereas others are kind of weird half-combos. The latter variety are possible to break out of early, if you do a recovery. If you keep getting hit beyond that point, it’s your own fault for failing to recover.

Press the light attack button and any direction if you’re tanking a combo in the air, and you’ll do an air recovery in that direction.

You can also press a direction right before you hit the ground to recover instantly, which will let you block or evade if the enemy tries to perform an OTG (off-the-ground) combo.

Countering Super Dash

When a super dash is coming at you, there are a few ways to deal with it. Some characters like Frieza can create a wall in front of them with the press of a button. Others have a literal “counter” ability that acts like a parry.

For the rest of us, there’s crouching heavy.

Super dash makes it easy to close the distance between fighters, but it is highly punishable. At higher levels, a super dash across the entire screen is a horrendous, what-were-you-thinking mistake. You should punish this at all times.

One of the easiest ways to do this is popping a Down Heavy attack right in their dirty, super dashing face. In the FACE.

Watch Every Easter Egg for Anime Fans in ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’

This has multiple benefits beyond the obvious one of winning vs a super dash. Being an anti-air move, it’s also great against jumping attacks. It’s a launcher, so you’re starting an air combo that you can finish with a hard knockdown (see more about those here).

There’s also a large window of time when you’re invincible during this attack. If they do their thing and you do your thing, it’s actually hard to time it wrong.

If for whatever reason you want to stop their super dash with something else, it’s also possible to time a standing light attack to bring them out of it, or some characters have ranged attacks that are quick enough to be feasible as well.

Reflecting

If someone has you trapped in a corner or is a little too close for comfort, there’s an alternative to blocking, that will actually push your opponent away.

Holding back and special button will “reflect” an attack. Whereas other fighting games might require you to perfectly time a press of forward on the D-pad, here you can keep holding back and time the special button. The window to achieve this is also much more forgiving.

Reflecting will create some space between you and the enemy, so you don’t have to constantly match low or high blocks to their sweeps and overheads. Reflecting actually covers both high and low attacks as well.

You can reflect a normal hit, a special move, a super rush and even a super attack. Here’s Yamcha‘s super being knocked back by Goku Black‘s reflect:

 

Max Punish

In every fighting game, you should work out what your Max Punish is.

This is whatever will deal the most damage possible — usually from a neutral position, but it’s also working out what this would be if approaching from the air, and other scenarios.

The idea here is that your opponent is going to make mistakes. They’re going to whiff an anti-air, or a super. All of a sudden the opponent is left wide open. What’s the maximum damage you can do?

The Story of Android 21 in ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’

This is where the hours in the training mode come in. That long combo you’ve been practicing now has its time to shine.

Button mashers, by their very nature, will make lots of mistakes. Especially if you’re using the above methods to shut them down. Having a max punish up your sleeve will make everything else more effective.

It’s likely your opponent might just stop button mashing and concede that it’s time to actually learn the game, because they know every little mistake will result in getting sucked into the most devastating combo you can muster.

We’ve talked a bit about combos here at FANDOM as well. Check out the below post for advice on how to pull off the most effective manual combos, as opposed to the auto combos caused by repeatedly pressing one button.

How Dragon Ball FighterZ’s Android 21 Could Fit Within the Dragon Ball Canon

With Dragon Ball FighterZ rapidly approaching, fans will not only experience the first truly technical Dragon Ball fighting game, but will also be treated to a brand-new character in the mysterious Android 21.

Designed by series creator Akira Toriyama, Android 21 is one of the few female characters to appear in FighterZ. She seems to be the main antagonist of the game’s story mode. Information about this new character is still pretty scarce. But considering her background, design, and her appearance in promotional material, it’s not too difficult to speculate how she might fit into the broader Dragon Ball series.

A Scientist First and Foremost


Another brilliant scientist joins the Dragon Ball roster.

Android 21 is a member of and researcher for the Red Ribbon Army. This militaristic criminal organization first appeared in the original Dragon Ball series. The group strove to collect the Dragon Balls to obtain world domination. But not really, as the leader of the Red Ribbon Army – Commander Red – secretly wanted to use the wish to become taller. The Red Ribbon Army Saga helped Dragon Ball develop into the series it is today by introducing more sci-fi elements and making it less focused on mystical adventures or martial arts.

As a scientist for the Red Ribbon Army, Android 21 more than likely played a role in developing the organization’s iconic Androids or some of the other super weapons found in the organization. As the story mode features corrupted versions of characters from the series, she may have spent her time working for RR developing the means to create these copies.

A Wife and a Mother?


There’s a lot of smoke for there to be no fire.

There’s also a very good chance that Android 21 is the mother of Android 16 and the wife of Android 20 – Dr Gero. The evil Dr. Gero created the majority of the Red Ribbon Androids and even turned himself into one, so he could exact his revenge on Goku for destroying the Army. Android 16 is the android version of Gero’s son, who died in a battle; though some fans theorize he may have died when Goku attacked the Army’s headquarters (Muscle Tower).

It’s clear from the promotional material that 21 has some kind of relationship with 16, and it would make sense if she were his mother becausethe other half of 16’s parentage is still unknown. 21 being the wife of Dr. Gero could also be a great chance to give Gero a bit more background and motivation, as he never had much time to establish himself in Dragon Ball Z.

A Murderous Machine


Revenge may be her motivation.

Even if she isn’t related to Androids 16 and 20, it’s clear that she has some kind of close relationship with them. It seems like she rebuilt Android 16 and may have tried to do the same for Dr. Gero before realizing it is impossible with his brain destroyed. Her attempts at killing Goku and company in the game might be revenge against them for letting 16 die to Cell, and her husband’s death at the hands of Androids 17 and 18.

Alternatively, she could have had a less than pleasant relationship with Dr. Gero and these attacks against the Z Fighters could be her attempting to surpass him. While the motivations behind her villainy are sure to remain a mystery right up until the game’s launch, it’s safe to say that it will almost certainly tie back into her relationship with Gero and 16.

The Most Compelling Questions


What will hopefully be revealed, but may never.

Outside of the plot of Dragon Ball FighterZ and her role in it, Android 21 inspires a lot of questions. Is she really an android, or is she a cyborg like Androids 17 and 18? Was she made by Dr. Gero, did he turn her into an android, or did she turn herself into one? Can she also absorb energy like Gero or does she have her own unique powers?

At least some of these questions may be answered in Dragon Ball FighterZ, while others may remain a mystery forever. Android 21 has quickly become a hotly debated character, and hopefully, she’ll receive a satisfying story and background within the game. Maybe we’ll get lucky and she’ll even become a playable character! FighterZ, and Dragon Ball as a whole, could really use a few more lady fighters.

LaVar Ball To Launch A Basketball League For High School Grads

LaVar Ball continues to put his stamp on basketball and the entire world of sports.

He’s already disrupted the college recruiting system, shut down Trump and given the Lakers fits in the PR department. Now word has surfaced that Ball wants to start his own basketball league for high school players who don’t want to go to college.


According to ESPN, the league will be for top-ranked players who graduate from high school but don’t want to go the college route.

“Getting these players is going to be easy,” Ball told ESPN. “This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.”

The so-called “Ball’s Junior Basketball Association,” which Ball says will be funded by his Big Baller Brand, looks to pay salaries ranging from $ 3,000 a month for the lowest-ranked player to $ 10,000 a month for a top ranked player. He’s looking for 10 teams and 80 players in total, with teams being placed in cities such as Brooklyn, LA, Dallas and Atlanta.

Ball’s inspiration for the League derives from comments made by NCAA President Mark Emmert when asked about Ball’s impact on college sports.

“Is this about someone being part of a university and playing basketball or any other sport with that school’s jersey on representing that institution, or is it about preparing me for my career, my professional career as a ballplayer,” Emmert responded. “If it’s the latter, you can do that inside a university and that might be a really good way to go. But if you don’t want to and you don’t think that it’s right for your family then don’t come.”

“He was right. Those kids who are one and done, they shouldn’t be there with the NCAA trying to hold them hostage, not allowing them to keep the jersey they wear while selling replicas of them in stores,” Ball said. “So our guy isn’t going to go to Florida State for a year. He’s going to come to our league.”

The League will be sponsored by Big Baller Brand, with all of the players required to wear BBB products, head to toe.

“We’ll give it to them all,” Ball said. “They’ll be wearing our uniform, our shoes, our T-shirts and our hoodies.”

Although they will adopt the rules of the NBA, the BBB league won’t be using a silhouette of of Jerry West dribbling. You already know the deal.


“We don’t need a logo of a guy dribbling,” Ball said, an obvious reference to the NBA’s famous Jerry West silhouette. “Nobody does that anymore.”

So of course Lonzo, now going for a dunk, will be the league’s logo.

LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball Sign 1-Year Contract To Play In Lithuania

It appeared all but inevitable that LiAngelo Ball‘s college career was coming to an end, and that was confirmed when he signed with the same agent that represents his older brother, Lonzo Ball. LiAngleo and his younger brother LaMelo Ball, who also signed with the agent, have agreed to play one year overseas for a team in Lithuania. 

Yahoo Sports reports:

LaMelo, 16, and LiAngelo Ball, 19, agreed to deals with Vytautas that will allow the two prospects to start their careers in a competitive professional league with a history of producing NBA players and focus on development. Both will report to the team in early January, sources told Yahoo Sports. LaMelo and LiAngelo — the younger brothers of Los Angeles Lakers starting point guard Lonzo Ball — began the process of exploring international deals last week.

They have now committed to a Lithuanian team that won a championship last season and plays in competitive games in the Baltic and Lithuanian leagues, which includes teams that participate in EuroCup (Lietkabelis) and EuroLeague (Zalgiris). Several notable players have spent time in the Lithuanian league before joining the NBA or other leagues, including Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas, the No. 5 pick in the 2011 NBA draft; Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes; ex-Houston and New Orleans forward Donatas Motiejunas; former New York Knicks forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas; and Isaiah Hartenstein, who was a second-round pick to Houston in the 2017 draft.

The outlet adds that agent Harrison Gaines fielded a number of international deals for the brothers, but the signing with Vytautas Prienai offered the most potential for the players to find minutes.

LaVar Ball Is Feuding with Donald Trump Over His Son’s Release From China

(WASHINGTON) — Outspoken basketball dad LaVar Ball questioned the extent of President Donald Trump’s involvement in securing his son’s release from the custody of Chinese authorities during a combative 20-minute CNN interview on Monday night.

The president, in tweets Sunday, said he should have left LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in jail because LaVar Ball “is unaccepting of what I did for his son” and “very ungrateful!” LaVar Ball has refused to thank Trump.

LaVar Ball didn’t back down during the CNN interview, telling host Chris Cuomo that Trump has more important things to do than ask for his gratitude.

“That’s on your mind, that a father didn’t say ‘Thank you’? And you’re the head of the U.S.? Come on,” Ball said. “There’s a lot of other things that’s going on. Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let’s just stay in our lane.”

Ball suggested that he and Chinese president Xi Jinping had more to do with securing his son’s release than the president.

“Did (Trump) help the boys get out? I don’t know. If I was going to thank somebody, I probably would thank President Xi. He’s in China. He’s the president of China,” Ball said, later adding: “I helped my son get out of China. I had some people that had boots on the ground that knew the situation.”

Ball also pushed back against Trump’s suggestion that shoplifting “is a very big deal in China.”

“It wasn’t a big deal because being raised in South Central LA, I’ve seen harsher things. I’ve seen 16, 17-year-old kids that have had to go to jail for life, that were my friends,” Ball said. “He wasn’t physical. He returned it. He fessed up to it.”

LiAngelo and fellow UCLA freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have been suspended indefinitely. They were arrested and questioned about stealing from high-end stores next to the team’s hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins stayed before leaving for Shanghai to play Georgia Tech. All three apologized for their actions and thanked Trump for his role in securing their release, which occurred while the president was traveling in Asia.

The trio isn’t allowed to suit up, be on the bench for home games or travel with the team. Without them, No. 23 UCLA lost to Creighton on Monday night in the Hall of Fame Classic.

LaVar Ball is attempting to build an empire around the basketball skills of his three sons — Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo, LiAngelo and prep prospect LaMelo — and his own bombastic personality. He started an apparel company, Big Baller Brand, with shoes that retail for $ 500 or more, and he got in several plugs for his products during the CNN interview.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Donald Trump and LaVar Ball Really Do Deserve Each Other

At the start of this year, if you would have told me I’d be interviewing a China scholar about a deal in which President of the United States asks his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, for help to free three UCLA basketball players who’ve been held in a Chinese hotel for allegedly stealing sunglasses, I would have scoffed. If you said that one of those UCLA players was LiAngelo Ball, son of LaVar Ball — proprietor of $ 495 shoes, controversial and outspoken father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — I would have laughed even harder.

Bet the under on that one, since I had to call up UCLA’s Shirley Wang Endowed Chair in US-China Relations & Communications, Min Zhou, to talk about LaVar Ball.

In hindsight, however, that LaVar Ball and Donald Trump would cross paths in the frenetic, utterly unpredictable 2017 news cycle was all but inevitable. Before returning home from a 12-day trip through Asia, President Trump on Tuesday confirmed that he asked President Xi, during Trump’s state visit to Beijing, to intervene on behalf of UCLA freshman basketball players Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley, who were arrested on shoplifting charges while in Hangzhou for UCLA’s opening game against Georgia Tech on Nov. 10. “They’re working on it right now,” Trump said. The players boarded a flight back to Los Angeles today.

“What they did was unfortunate,” Trump told reporters before leaving Manila and returning to Washington. Shoplifting penalties can vary greatly in China, but the players could have conceivably faced multiple years in jail.

Yes, Trump’s rescue of the Ball family is shrouded in symbolism. The President and LaVar Ball are classic carnival barkers who relish the media limelight. (Among LaVar Ball’s most outrageous statements: that Lonzo, the Lakers rookie, is the best player on the planet. He’s averaging 9.5 points per game, on an unseemly 31.3% shooting, for the 6-8 Lakers) They both appeared in WWE matches. They’re creations of our reality show world — while Trump had The Apprentice, Ball offers Ball In The Family on Facebook. They provoke strong reactions, positive and negative. Many people on social media have imagined Trump and Ball holding a joint press conference in the wake of the shoplifting charges. That would be quite a show.

This story, however, is more than an amusing sidelight. It does raise questions about selective justice. While the UCLA players go free, what about the human rights activists still imprisoned in China? “It’s easier for China to release American students than political dissidents,” says Zhou, the expert in China-U.S. relations, in a phone interview. “That’s a much more sensitive issue.”

The high-profile status of the UCLA players likely helped expedite their release. The Wall Street Journal noted that Detroit-native Wendell Brown, who was coaching a local American football team in China, is still in a Chinese jail after a September 2016 bar fight (he was charged with intentional assault).

China’s release of the basketball players carries diplomatic consequences as the world’s two largest economies haggle over trade and the North Korea nuclear threat. “It’s very important,” Zhou, a member of UCLA’s sociology department. “It’s a positive sign that the countries can work together.” The timing of the arrests helped the freshmen. Trump was also in China, on a state visit, when goodwill between countries generally ratchets up a level. Zhou’s happy China didn’t overtly use the detained students bargaining chips with the U.S. But don’t be surprised, she says, if China expects something in return down the road. “There’s still some sort of bargaining involved,” she says. “I’m doing you favor.”

Zhou’s thrilled that the students are returning home. “Kids make mistakes, and they should be given second chances,” she says.

Where does everyone go from here? UCLA coach Steve Alford will likely hand down some sort of suspension for his players. But at this rate, go ahead and expect LiAngelo Ball to hit the shot that sends UCLA to the Final Four, while his dad waves his Big Baller Brand kicks in the crowd. It’s November 2017. Anything goes.

Top 5 Dragon Ball Games

Dragon Ball FighterZ hasn’t even released yet, but based on the very limited closed beta, it’s already a contender for the greatest Dragon Ball game ever. This gorgeous looking game manages to combine deep fighting mechanics and enough Dragon Ball nostalgia to stun an Oozaru. While Dragon Ball games have been a mixed bag, here are the five best Dragon Ball games that might scratch that Dragon Ball itch until FighterZ comes out in February 2018.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1 and 2


A fun trip down memory lane.

The Xenoverse games are amazing on a conceptual level but are brought down by poor execution. These Dragon Ball RPGs allow players to create personalized characters from the various races and species that appear in the Dragon Ball universe and have them intervene at critical moments from the anime series. These games also provide a bunch of interesting “what if” scenarios, like Captain Ginyu changing bodies with Vegeta, and Goku’s father, Bardock, playing a bigger role in the story.

However, questionable game design gets in the way of these games being as much fun as they deserve to be. Some attacks are so powerful that they break the game, the seemingly random difficulty spikes make some parts of the game a breeze and others a grind, and a good portion of the DLC feels like it should be present in the base game. But, although the Xenoverse games have their flaws, they let players immerse themselves in the Dragon Ball world more than any other title on this list, even if it isn’t the most user-friendly experience.

Dragon Ball Online


What could have been.

Dragon Ball Online is an MMORPG that is responsible for a lot of the lore present in the Xenoverse games and some of the Dragon Ball Super anime. The game takes place more than 200 years after the Buu Saga finishes and centers on a race of demons trying to invade Earth. Players can take the role of either a human, Namekian, or Majin character and do battle against these demonic invaders. Well, players could do this if there were any way to play Dragon Ball Online anymore.

Dragon Ball Online became active in 2010, and all the servers were shut down in 2013. To add insult to injury, Western audiences never got access to the game either. There are a few emulation projects  currently trying to revive the game and bring it to American fans for the first time, but it’s likely that the groups holding the rights to Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Online will take legal action against the projects if they ever materialize. This truly is a shame as Dragon Ball Online was a unique game that heavily featured the input of series creator Akira Toriyama.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku 2


Phenomenal world building.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku 2 might be the best portable Dragon Ball game. It offers a pretty substantial RPG experience and allows the player to customize and level up several of the Z fighters. This game also covers the Android and Cell Sagas from Dragon Ball Z, which are arguably the best story arcs from the anime.

The Legacy of Goku 2 is also an amazing game because it builds on the world present in the anime more than perhaps any other video game title. Players can explore this fantastical world and interact with characters ranging from cyborg mercenaries to anthropomorphic dog presidents. This game is a perfect blend of both the fighting and wonderment that made so many people fall in love with the franchise.

Dragon Ball Heroes


Things get even crazier than adult Gotenks.

Dragon Ball Heroes is another bizarre Dragon Ball game that most people probably haven’t played. As Heroes is an arcade game that is only available in Japan, most western fans of the series only got to hear about some of the crazy stuff present in this title.

Do you wanna see Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta and Nappa? Heroes has it. Would you like to see more of Gogeta being unbelievably cool? This game has Gogeta in spades. Do you want to see Goku and Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece duke it out? Heroes has that too.

Dragon Ball Heroes is an amazing “what if” game that is sure to inspire fan discussion and fan fiction for years.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3


Formally the best ‘Dragon Ball’ fighting game (so far).

Budokai 3 is one of the most traditional Dragon Ball games on this list and is the most refined Dragon Ball fighting game to date. It makes up for its smaller roster with characters that have highly specific playing styles.

Budokai 3 also features a very appreciated level of customization and scores of replay value. Being made before online functionality was commonplace, it features a code system that allows players to fight against their friend’s customized characters.

Budokai 3, and the other games on this list have set the standard for quality Dragon Ball games. Thankfully, it won’t be too long before FighterZ is released and fans see how it stacks up against the franchise’s respectable collection of games.

Watch LaVar Ball and Ice Cube Go Head-To-Head in a BIG3 Long Distance Shoot Out

For someone who previously claimed he could beat Michael Jordan in his prime, LaVar Ball lost out to Ice Cube in Sunday night’s BIG3 shootout contest at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The challenge was brought on after Ice Cube tweeted he would buy ten pairs of Big Baller Brand’s ZO2 sneakers (priced at $ 495 USD each) if he lost, to which Ball accepted this weekend. Claiming “you know I hit them shots with my eyes closed.” Unfortunately, Ball was unable to live up to his words. The video sees Ball and Cube shoot from the four-point markers between the three-point line and half-court, with Ice Cube winning 2-1 over the course of 90 seconds.

The BIG3 League returns to the road again with the next stop at Key Arena in Seattle on August 20.

Michael Jordan: Could beat LaVar Ball with just one leg

Months after Ball made headlines by saying he "would kill" Jordan "back in my heyday," the Hall of Famer finally discussed Ball’s comments. "You got to understand the source. I think he played college, maybe?" Jordan told campers at his Flight School basketball camp Monday.?"He averaged 2.2 points a game. Really? "It doesn’t deserve a response, but I’m [going to] give it to you because you asked the question. I don’t think he could beat me if I was one-legged." Ball, the father of? Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, fired the first shot in March.

There Was A Fancy Masquerade Ball For Dogs And It Did Not Disappoint

There were no fashion faux paws here.

Some of Washington, D.C.’s most dapper dogs strutted their stuff for the 30th Annual Bark Ball on Saturday night while raising money for a local animal welfare organization (and taking the doggone cutest pictures).

The black-tie gala, which benefited the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA), featured a masquerade theme that allowed guests to bring their canine companions as their dinner dates.

Not a group to disappoint, the dogs were seen wearing their finest coats — as well as adorable bow ties, tutus, hats and at least one mask.

Insider photos posted to social media showed guests of all shapes, sizes, and breeds.

By the end of the night, an event spokesperson, reached by HuffPost, boasted that they had raised more than $ 700,000. They also received a record-breaking 1,200 guests, which included former Sens. Bob (R-Kan.) and Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.).

That money raised will go towards helping “protect animals, support families, and advocate for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive,” the animal welfare group said.

I guess humans know how to throw a good ball after all.

What Melania Trump’s Inaugural Ball Gown Designer Has To Say For Himself

Melania Trump became first lady of the United States on Jan. 20 and, as so many who came before her, she was front and center in the spotlight over inauguration weekend. 

The issue of dressing Mrs. Trump has been a polarizing one. After earlier reports tapped Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld as dressing her, only half of that report deemed itself true. 

Hervé Pierre, former creative director at Carolina Herrera, together with Trump, designed the white, off-the-shoulder gown she wore to the three balls she and her husband attended. Now, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pierre is getting pretty defensive sharing details about both the gown and the decision to make it. 

“I’m not doing politics, I’m doing dresses,” he said, adding, “we are not suddenly brokering a big deal between China and Russia. If people don’t want to dress her, I think it’s sad, but I was honored. I don’t criticize these people ― it’s their choice, and that’s the beauty of democracy.”

“These people” include Sophie Theallet, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, who are among the designers who have previously spoken out about not working with the new first lady. Pierre pointed out the fact that he was inundated with activity from the instant the new first lady showed up in his gown.

“Immediately my phone went ballistic with interview requests, I had investors and bankers in Dubai calling, people opened fake Instagram accounts under my name,” he said. 

Crediting Trump’s career as a model, as well as work in a design studio with how “she knows fashion” and “construction,” Pierre said it “was a very organic conversation because we have the same vocabulary.”

Pierre joins the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, who has been quoted saying designers should be “proud” to dress her. Time will only tell who else comes forward one way or the other.
