Jay Bilas Calls LaVar Ball A ‘Buffoon’ Who Isn’t Worthy of Attention or His Time
Looks like LaVar Ball has rubbed somebody else the wrong way.
ESPN’s Jay Bilas was a self admitted fan of LaVar Ball at one point, but that all went down the drain because of a few antics he deemed as being way too disrespectful in his eyes.
He believes the father of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball crossed the line from being funny to misogynistic. The last straw came over the weekend, when LaVar had a female referee removed from his son LaMelo’s AAU game because she assessed him a technical foul.
“I do not know of any major accomplishments in any area of business or entrepreneurship (outside of his Big Baller Brand, built off the talent of Lonzo, his oldest son) worthy of public recognition. Nor do I know of any skill he has demonstrated as a youth coach.
I enjoyed LaVar Ball and his antics at first, I now find him close to intolerable. Instead of being in on the joke, he has become a joke, and it is no longer funny. He started to lose me when he publicly complained about his son’s high school coach, who was ultimately out of his job. Then, he told Fox Sports’ Kristine Leahy to “stay in her lane,” which I found to be disrespectful and unnecessary to the point of being misogynistic. Then, he started to show himself through his participation as a “grassroots” summer basketball coach. He is needlessly profane and his conduct is out of control with officials and he’s not worthy of being in charge of the development of young players.
Well, LaVar Ball lost me on that one. Not that he cares or should care, but I am done with him. I am done listening to him, consuming his nonsense or caring what he has to say.
I was wrong about LaVar Ball. He is not a Kardashian. That is far too kind. He is a misogynistic buffoon unworthy of my time.”
