LaVar Ball Says He’s Cutting Off ESPN’s Jeff Goodman & Ramona Shelburne For Being ‘Roody Poos’
The same way LaVar Ball can love ya, he’ll also turn right around and diss you if you disrespect him or his family.
That’s exactly what happened recently when he made the decision to cut off two prominent ESPN reporters because of the stories they wrote about him.
During an interview with ESPN’s Jorge Sedano on Monday, the CEO of Big Baller Brand voiced his displeasure with ESPN writers Jeff Goodman and Ramona Shelburne, because he feels they were being ‘sheisty’ towards him. His anger likely stems from the story of him giving thoughts on Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton, which was written by Goodman.

“I sent Jeff Goodman home early,” Ball said. “Otherwise he would have still been out here. But how are you going to be out here if I won’t interview with you no more? You got to come home.”
“He ain’t my guy no more,” Ball answered. “I’ll never ever EVER do an interview with that guy again. He’s sheisty, and I see that. He wanted to go that route. I told him, ‘You can do what you want, say what you want, you just gotta suffer the consequences whether they be good or bad.’”
“He did the story he wanted to write, tried to finagle things,” Ball continued. “Guess what? He’s out of the picture now. He can’t come close to my family.”
Ball thought that his quotes on the Lakers turmoil was the story Goodman was actually trying to get: “If he thinks that story was worth a bunch of clicks, and him going to the moon? Hey, that’s fine. You also got to understand that affects me in a bad way, when I’m feeling bad, which it ain’t gonna bother me at all. Either I deal with you or I don’t. So now I never deal with him. Just like Ramona Shelburne. She’s off my list too. I don’t mess with them roody poos no more. It’s okay. They still gotta do some stories. But ain’t nobody want to hear those stories that they’re doing on the outside unless you got my name in it.”
Jeff Goodman seemed to take the news well.
