While LaVar Ball watched his sons, LaMelo and LiAngelo, play in a nationally televised high school basketball game, burglars broke into his home in Los Angeles at around 8 p.m. PT on Tuesday night, according to TMZ Sports.
The thieves, though, made off empty-handed after a loud crashing noise alerted neighbors, who immediately called the police, per TMZ. When the officers arrived to the Ball home, they found all the family’s belongings piled together in the center of the house, “as if they’d been rounded up.”
The burglars ditched their pillage, though, because of the police’s quick response time, according to TMZ Sports. Officers are now taking fingerprints and searching for surveillance videos.
The family has newfound fame given UCLA Bruins star guard Lonzo Ball’s pending selection as a top pick in the upcoming draft and his brothers, who have also committed to UCLA, are expected to make the jump shortly after.
They have also made headlines after LaVar Ball’s recent controversial remarks.
On Tuesday, he said he would settle for no less than a $1 billion shoe deal for his three sons, in an interview with USA Today.
