Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: LaVar Ball 'isn't doing his sons any good'

Postado Mai 18, 2017

In an interview with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, LaVar Ball, Lonzo's father, said, "Oh, he's going to be a Laker".

Lavar Ball - the polarizing owner of sportswear company Big Baller Brand and father of top National Basketball Association prospect Lonzo Ball - made headlines Wednesday for clashing with on-air Fox Sports 1 reporter Kristine Leahy.

"I don't think LaVar Ball is doing his sons any good", said Abdul-Jabbar.

Ball, who was turned on his couch toward Cowherd, did not look at Leahy and pointed at her. "I'll tell you. Four to five hundred pairs".

As the interview went on, Ball seemingly threatened Leahy after she had said she felt Big Baller Brand should do more to cater towards women.

When Leahy tried to interject, Ball called her a "hater".

When told that number was unrealistic, Ball replied, "unrealistic to you".

"Are you threatening me", she asked. "I'm talking to you, Colin". Ball interrupted. "Ain't we talking about shoes".

"I just said if you want to work with Nike, Adidas and Under Armour to maybe have something that appeals to women", she explained.

That's when he told Leahy to "Stay in your lane". "I would never threaten to you". "Something's coming to you, and it's okay".

"I don't know who we're gonna take right now".

Leahy then doubled-down on her suggestion that appealing to women will help his footwear and apparel label, and Ball offered an explanation as to why she is incorrect. News flash LaVar, if you alienate and disrespect large groups of people, those people will not buy your (overpriced) products and that is not good for your company.
