LaVar Ball is doing his still doing his best Jackie Moon impersonation and continuing to pull his team off the court. Today, he was given a technical foul for believe it or not continuing to berate an official. This same official, who is a female, T’d up Ball on Wednesday. Here’s today’s action:
Just another game for Coach Ball. Last week The Big Ballers actually were pulled off the court by their fearless leader after he was given a tech for arguing and cursing. Here’s that:
Here’s a timeline of what fans, spectators and college scouts were witnessing in front of their eyes:
Of course a company as reputable as ADIDAS would never give in to the demands of LaVarr Ball
Well there has to be a very good reason why ADIDAS would replace a referee in the middle of a game all because a c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶ ̶p̶e̶r̶s̶o̶n̶ coach of high school kids said so…
Eventually the game was called off after LaVar received another tech and wouldn’t leave the floor. During the postgame, Coach Ball had some regular coach speak. You know, the kind of stuff you always get after a game. The kind of stuff where you know the coach isn’t going give you anything juicy. PSYCHE!!!! I’m sure I got you. Of course Coach Ball went off on the referee again. According to Henry Bushnell of Yahoo Sports, Coach Ball kept saying his very unifying phrase “stay in yo lane” and saying “she needs to stay in her lane, she ain’t ready for this” in reference to her not being able to handle the extreme pressure of officiating games with talented, future college bound high school basketball players. Not to waste the opportunity to keep talking about the referee Coach Ball went on to say the reason why the referee gave him technical fouls in his last two games was that:
“Because she’s a woman who’s trying to act — I get that she’s trying to break into the referee thing. But just giving techs and calling fouls, that’s no way to do it. I know what she trying to say: ‘I gave LaVar, I gave him a tech, I’m strong.’ That ain’t got nothing to do with it. Just call the game.”
I’m sure this will have absolutely no damage on Coach Ball’s son LaMelo. I’m sure that when he sees his dad act like a raving lunatic that just makes him want to go out there and play even harder. Kudos to ADIDAS for having this referee’s back and not worrying about the camera crew that’s following Coach Ball. They showed a lot of backbone here and by back bone I mean that LaVar Ball just pwned them like they never been pwned before. Hard telling if this kind of behavior will continue with Coach Ball. Wait a minute. No it’s not. This will completely without a doubt keep happening. Well can’t wait for the LaVar Ball and family tv show to hit Facebook or Lifetime or whatever station or internet website he gets. I’m sure it will be fascinating.
I know he believes that he’s playing a character and that all this maniac stuff will ultimately lead to people buying his shoes and clothing line. But maybe just maybe it won’t. I know that’s a pretty out of left field thing to say but the clothing might not be where he makes money. Probably just going to be the money that Lonzo gives you when he gets his mega deal in a few years.
PS- You know who’s loving this? Lonzo Ball. Nobody talking about him right now unless they’re talking about how good he did in the summer league. LaMelo, you’re the next man up to feel the LaVar Ball backlash. Have fun
PPS- This is the only way to pull your team off the court
