LaVar Ball Says He & LaMelo Could Beat LeBron & Jordan

LaVar Ball Says He & LaMelo Could Beat LeBron & Jordan

Ball, who's been accused of misogynistic behavior before, also specifically called out the female referee, "a woman", he said snidely, indicating she just must have had something to prove.

Big Baller Brand would lose to Team BBC 53-43 in the shortened game.

After the technical foul in the first half, Ball pointed to the official and yelled, "We need to get someone else in here".

The outspoken father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball was at the Adidas Uprising AAU game, coaching his son LaMelo, who put up a game-high 31 points in Wednesday's game against fellow highly-touted prospect Zion Williamson.

The game eventually ended early when Ball received his second technical foul and was ejected.

On Friday, the patriarch of the Ball family had another run-in with a woman and used the phrase "stay in your lane" when she challenged him.

What overbearing basketball dad LaVar Ball wants is apparently what overbearing basketball dad LaVar Ball gets, or so it seems at the Adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas.

"I know what she's trying to do", he said.

Amazingly, Ball got his wish - the ref who gave him a technical was replaced mid-game, per ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

"She's got a vendetta ..." "She's trying to say, 'Oh, I gave him a check, I'm strong!'" "If you're going to be qualified, you better be in shape and you better know the game", he added.

"I don't care if you're a woman or a man or whatever just be good at what you do". In May, he told Fox Sports1 reporter Kristine Leahy to similarly "stay in your lane", refusing to look at her after she asked how many Big Baller shoes he's sold and why he doesn't market the company to women.
