LaVar Ball Called 'Disrespectful To Women' By Radio Host

Ball will participate in a pre-draft workout with the Lakers only, his father, LaVar, told Lakers Nation on Tuesday.

"[You said you would never wear] something that says Big Baller on it", Ball said.

"'Oh, I would never wear something that said 'Big Baller, " LaVar said in a mocking tone".

Leahy then asked if Ball was threatening her. "That's just not OK", she said.

"No, that's what you say", Ball responded.

Whether that was unfair of Leahy to say about a 19-year-old is debatable, but it doesn't at all excuse the way LaVar Ball talked to her on Wednesday. Ball interrupted. "Ain't we talking about shoes. I would never threaten you".

He continued on in that vein, further dismissing an argument from Leahy that the Big Baller brand might see more success if it was opened up to women.

Ball: Stay in your lane.

And maybe Nike, adidas or Under Armour, if they had vision, should give LaVar Ball a $1 billion in exchange for an endorsement deal with Ball's three sons - Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo.

He told Cowherd he had sold in the ballpark of 400-500 pairs of the shoes. I would wear all their stuff.

"Once we were eliminated from the playoffs, we did everything possible to lose games", Cuban said on the radio show. "Something's coming to you, and it's okay". Leahy took exception to that comment. According to Variety, Leahy had previously seemed to imply on an earlier episode that Ball forced his sons to play basketball and was guilty of child abuse. She went on FOX Sports 1's Speak For Yourself moments after the brand unveiled its signature shoe and blasted Ball for not marketing to women.

After the segment, Cowherd defended Leahy.
