LaVar Ball may have opened his mouth one too many times on Wednesday, as the father of NBA Draft prospect Lonzo Ball had a disastrous appearance on “The Herd” on FS1. Up until his Wednesday appearance, Ball had been boisterous and ridiculous with some of the things he said, but had avoided being problematic.
Ball got into it with Colin Cowherd’s co-host Kristine Leahy on Wednesday’s show when she asked about Big Baller Brand’s shoe sales. Ball took offense to the comment and told Leahy to “stay in her lane” while only speaking towards Cowherd (and saying they’d sold 400 to 500 pairs).
When Leahy persisted and tried to explain she wasn’t attacking him but simply pointing out that the company should try and also target women (like, 50 percent of the population and more than half of the clothes-buying market), Ball insisted that Big Baller Brand is not a women’s company.
“Uh, yeah, if you have a women’s company, but we talking about Big Baller Brand,” Ball said.
