LaVar Ball: Big Baller Brand is not a 'women's company'

Bad luck for the Suns or is the NBA Draft Lottery rigged

Bad luck for the Suns or is the NBA Draft Lottery rigged

He has spurned traditional shoe sponsorship deals with major companies for his son, and launched his own company called Big Baller Brand.

Ball replied: "Uh, yeah, if you have a women's company".

Later in the interview, he had the gall to say, "I never disrespect women".

Ball: She scares me to death. Cowherd attempted to defend Leahy's question, saying she's just being a reporter probing for questions.

With LaVar Ball, nothing seems to come easy.

A source confirmed to ESPN's Darren Rovell that Ball's asking price with the big shoe companies was indeed $1 billion.

"I never disrespect women". Really, though, it rubbed everyone the wrong way - and rightfully so - when he told the talented Leahy to "stay in her lane" a couple of times. I would wear all their stuff.

Leahy then doubled-down on her suggestion that appealing to women will help his footwear and apparel label, and Ball offered an explanation as to why she is incorrect.

He responded: "Oh, I don't respect women, but I'm the one that's married?" She said Ball might have been upset with her previous comments about his company taking aim at Nike, Adidas and Under Armor. "Something's coming to you, and it's okay".

However, as commenters on Twitter and other journalists noted, Leahy has not shied away from criticizing Ball and his son before.

"Ball: "Oh, see how she is trying to turn the words?" Much like LaVar said that LeBron's kids had pressure to play basketball, Kristine - while appearing on the March 29 episode of Fox Sports Speak For Yourself - speculated that LaVar put some unfair pressure on his sons to play the game.

Later in show, Ball attacked FOX Sports' Jason Whitlock, saying he "can't comment on anything but snacks".
