LaVar Ball is known to say and do outlandish things.
I don’t need to list them because his media presence is pervasive to the point overkill, but I will for the sake of highlighting it all in one spot:
- He’s called out Kyrie Irving for not having a mother (she died when he was 4).
- He’s maligned and threatened a female reporter (on national TV).
- He’s maligned a sports journalist for his weight (on national TV).
- He’s begun the marketing campaign for a $500 shoe for an unproven rookie while simultaneously insulting 95% of the market by saying “If you can’t afford it, we don’t want you; you’re obviously not a big baller” (paraphrased).
