LaVar Ball: Michael Jordan couldn't sell $495 shoes because he's not Lonzo

  LaVar Ball: Michael Jordan couldn't sell $495 shoes because he's not Lonzo LaVar Ball reappeared on television this week to let everyone know that Michael Jordan couldn't sell $495 (!) sneakers, which is a historical fact - but LaVar says it's because MJ isn't his son, Lonzo (which is also a fact, but a dubiously connected one). Whoa!

Kristine Leahy issues powerful response to LaVar Ball ’ s threatening comments on FS 1 . LaVar Ball ' s Wednesday appearance on Fox Sports One's The Herdcrossed an uncomfortable line when he disrespected co-host Kristine Leahy live on the air.

LaVar Ball's Wednesday appearance on Fox Sports One's The Herdcrossed an uncomfortable line when he disrespected co-host Kristine Leahy live on the air. After telling Leahy to "stay in your lane" and refusing to even look at her, Ball took it a step further and threatened Leahy.

"I never disrespect women," Ball said. "But I'll tell you what, if you act like that, guess what? Something's coming to you, and it's okay."

Despite the troubling remarks, Leahy stood her ground against the outspoken father of Lonzo Ball as he still refused to look at her. Later that day, Leahy joined Chris Broussard, Jason Whitlock and Colin Cowherd on FS1's Speak For Yourself and issued her response to Ball's behavior.

LaVar Ball: ‘I don’t need no advice from Kobe Bryant’

  LaVar Ball: ‘I don’t need no advice from Kobe Bryant’ This probably won’t go over well, but it really isn’t that bad. LaVar Ball’s irreverence knows no bounds. Thursday morning, in an appearance on ESPN’s Mornings with Keyshaun (Johnson), Jorge (Sedano) and LZ (Granderson), Ball went where few have dared: He refused to bow at the alter of Kobe Bryant. Fans will freak out about the first sentence of the quote, but really, this is probably what most players think anytime the media breathlessly asks if they’ll be turning to the Black Mamba for tips on how studying the prehistoric saber-toothed tiger might help guard LeBron James.

Leahy said:

"LaVar Ball has every right to disagree with anything that I say, anything that any of us say. I really enjoy debate. I just like it to be respectful. You and I debate, we debate all the time. It's what we do here. But we do it in a respectful way. We don't threaten each other. We don't dismiss each other. We look each other in the eye. We don't make personal attacks about weight.

"I asked him a question. That is my job as a reporter. And he came back at me in a very dismissive and inappropriate way. So, I had two choices: I could either sit back and take it … Or I could stand up for myself and talk to him. Still, with complete respect. And for the record, I've actually supported him being such a strong voice for his son, and we talk more about his son than anyone else because of what he's done for him.

Kristine Leahy responds to LaVar Ball ' s threatening comments on FS 1 : 'That's just not OK'. LaVar Ball threatened 'The Herd' co-host Kristine Leahy when she dared to question him. 159 shares10hr ago. MLB.

"He goes on lots of shows. He has this kind of shtick about him where he's outspoken, but with that, comes room for being criticized by the media. That's our jobs. And what he's upset at me for is for something that I said a few weeks ago on the show that when he was getting turned down from Under Armour, Nike and Adidas for these partnerships, I said, 'If he wants to think like a mogul and work with these companies, he has to look at what they do.' And that's they market to women. Women are the people buying their sons' shoes. They make up more than half of sales for these types of brands. So, he has to think like that if he wants to be this big mogul.

"So he was upset at me for what I said there, and that's completely fine. But you can't come at me and disrespect me and not look me in the eye and threaten me. That's just not OK."

Ball denied that he threatened Leahy, but the video from The Herd suggested differently.

Luke Walton not stressing LaVar Ball, cites his dad's 'big personality' .
If the Los Angeles Lakers have a chance to land Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, head coach Luke Walton is on board. More than that, he’s not scared off by the young man’s father, LaVar Ball, who has been making headlines more than his son in recent months. Speaking with TMZ Sports, Walton gushed about Ball’s game.“I’m a big fan of his game,” Walton said. ” I went and watched him play this year at Poly. The way he plays, it’s, uh, he plays the right way. He’s unselfish, and whatever team he ends up on, he’s going to make that team a lot better.
