"You can’t come at me and disrespect me and not look me in the eye."
LaVar Ball made headlines once again yesterday during his appearance on Fox Sports 1's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd," not only because he wants $3 billion to partner with a brand like Nike or Adidas, but also because of the way he spoke to Colin's co-host Kristine Leahy.
During LaVar's interview, Kristine asked him how many pairs of the $495 ZO2 Prime Big Baller Brand sneaker he had sold, to which he replied, "stay in your lane." LaVar later said his Big Baller Brand was not a "women's company."
“Stay in your lane,” Ball responded, while refusing to even look at Leahy. “I don’t even worry about her over there.”
"In order to have a successful company, I think you are going to have to have women that like your brand,” said Leahy.
“Uh, yeah, if you have a women’s company. But we talking about Big Baller Brand," LaVar replied.
Later in the day on Fox Sports' "Speak For Yourself," Kristine Leahy mentioned that she has criticized LaVar in the past, which is part of her job, though that doesn't give LaVar the right to be disrespectful and threaten.
"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,” she said.
