(7-28-17) LaVar Ball joined the He-Man Women Haters Club today while in Las Vegas coaching his Big Ballers team at the AAU Tournament.
This morning Ball had a female referee replaced mid-game by Adidas officials who sponsor the AAU event after he was called for a technical, she was replaced by a male official. He would receive another technical, by a male official, and would pull his team of the floor before the end of the game and would lose by forfeit (53-43 loss to Team BBC).
After the game he went on a sexist rant about the female official that was replaced because of him:
In a USA Today story he was quoted as saying:
“She’s got a vendetta because she’s a woman that is trying to break into the refereeing thing, but giving techs and calling fouls, that’s no way to do it.:
“She ain’t ready for this… She ain’t good enough. She ain’t got enough on her resume. I can tell.”
“She needs to stay in her lane because she ain’t ready for this.”
It wasn’t the first incident Ball had told a woman to remain in ‘her lane’.
LaVar Ball, with his antics over the past year has put a damper on the world of high school boys basketball. Putting the spotlight on him and taking away from his sons (Lonzo, LaMelo and LiAngelo) and his players. It’s a shame.
