TMZ has obtained footage of basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley leaving China Tuesday.

The video is a short clip only a couple seconds long, but the players can clearly be seen boarding the plane at the gate.

Allegedly shoplifting in China is about as dumb as it gets for a visiting American athlete, especially for the son of the man who invited the Big Baller Brand. There is literally nothing good that can come from getting locked up abroad, especially in a oppressive country like China.

They’re certainly not going to trot you out in front of a jury of your buddies to judge you fairly in a legal system that gives everybody an equal shot.

I’m glad they all got home safely, but they deserve some seriously tough punishment. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they’re not on the UCLA team at this time next week.
