LaVar Ball Fires Head Coach Who Was Seen Shoving & Challenging Kid To A Fight (VIDEO)
Last week, disturbing footage emerged out of the Junior Basketball Association that showed a coach using two fists to shove one of his players twice for his bad play on the floor. If that wasn’t bad enough, he then headbutted the kid and challenged him to a fight.
“Hey, that’s my bad, I guess,” Dixson said during a timeout in a mostly empty arena in Ontario, Calif.
“Get the f—ing ball,” Denard countered. “Stop being a b—-.”
“What you going to do? What you going to do, huh? What the f— are you going to do?”
In the aftermath of the incident, LaVar Ball actually defended the actions of the coach in an interview with Fox.
“It’s just the intensity of the game,” said Ball. “It’s not like the guy has a bad character of beating up kids or something like that. … He’s not swinging or anything like that. He’s just very intense, and it happened at a bad moment. But it’s nothing like sending guys to the military at 18. You don’t think they’re cussing at that guy at 18 and sending him over there to war? They’re doing the same damn thing, but this is the JBA, and they say, ‘Well, let’s see if we can knock LaVar down with this.’”
That good will didn’t last long because Chicago Ballers head coach Eddie Denard is now looking for a new job today after LaVar Ball took it upon himself to fire him for his actions.

As far as the player, Dixon took to social media and responded to the many folks who kept asking him why he didn’t retaliate towards the coach.
“I’ll cut the record straight as of now,” Dixson said in a Facebook post responding to the incident the following day. “I didn’t react like everybody wanted to because I know how to keep my composure when needed to. If I would’ve acted crazy I’d be the kid known for fighting his coach on national TV.”
