Welcome back to the spotlight, LaVar Ball.
Lonzo’s dad was on First Take this week, spouting off his usual nonsense, and then winding up in the headlines when he made a comment that SOME PEOPLE believed to be suggestive.
Here’s the exchange with Molly Qerim:

“Oh Lord,” says Stephen A Smith, who gives Ball the side eye.
ESPN, who invited Ball on the air, condemned the comments and issued this statement:
“LaVar Ball’s comment to Molly Qerim Rose was completely inappropriate and we made him aware of that,” a network spokesperson said.”
Ball’s camp said the comments were NOT SEXUAL IN NATURE.
Right, so anyway, this makes me laugh, because ESPN puts the guy on TV, knowing he’ll say some outrageous shit, then they turn around and condemn him for saying some outrageous shit.
Funny how that works!
Qerim is married to Jalen Rose, FYI. The next logical course of action here is for Rose and Ball to rumble in the octagon at UFC 239. I’m dialing up Dana White right now.
