LaVar Ball Throws Hissy Fit, Gets Female Referee Replaced Mid-Game

Ball, who's been accused of misogynistic behavior before, also specifically called out the female referee, "a woman", he said snidely, indicating she just must have had something to prove. "And now she's trying to make a name for herself, so she's walking around like, 'You know I'm the only woman in here.' Yeah we get it", he said.

In explaining his frustration, Ball told ESPN that the female referee had a "vendetta" and "needs to stay in her lane because she ain't ready for this". "However, due to strong messaging (from Adidas) to extend those guidelines in an effort to keep (LaVar Ball) in the gym, the officiating crew felt uncomfortable enforcing the technical foul rule for actions that clearly warranted (action)".

On Friday, the patriarch of the Ball family had another run-in with a woman and used the phrase "stay in your lane" when she challenged him.

Ball received a technical foul for arguing with the referee after what he believed was a bad call, and reportedly threatened to take his team off the court as he had done just six days earlier, unless the referee was replaced, according to ESPN's Jeff Porzello.

The LaVar Ball circus continued yesterday, this time with some not-so-thinly-veiled misogyny taking a spot in the center ring.

After LaMelo Ball dropped 38 points in Big Baller Brand's 111-102 win over Play Hard Play Smart on Thursday night, the AAU club could have won its second straight game in Las Vegas.

"I know what she's trying to do", he said.

"I got me and Melo. Coach the little kids first then come up 'cause she ain't good enough". BBB lost 53-43.
