LaVar Ball went on The Herd with Colin Cowherd today, and he must’ve let the news of the Los Angeles Lakers having the second overall pick in the upcoming draft get to his head. But then again, when does LaVar need a reason to act like a total dickhead? During his interview, he was a world-class jerk to co-host Kristine Leahy over perfectly reasonable questions.
The whole interview is fascinating and worth listening to in full, but Ball snaps at Leahy for the first time at roughly the six-minute mark. You can check out audio of the whole interview or watch video clips of Ball going at Leahy.
Asking how many pairs of those dumbass ZO2s LaVar has sold is the question on everybody’s mind, so I don’t see why he got so damn defensive. Ball doing that high-pitched voice was so f*cking disrespectful it made my blood boil.
And this is the jackass that’s going to have a sneaker empire??? Being a condescending prick and saying that he doesn’t want anything to do with a market that represents approximately 50% of the population doesn’t seem like the best way to accomplish that.
The other major lowlight in the interview was LaVar doubling down on his idiotic statement that he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one (8:05). Forget Mayweather/McGregor, I need Ball/Jordan in the worst way. Nothing on this planet would make me happier than watching MJ wipe that smug grin off that egomaniac’s face.
