Adidas Reportedly Didn't Want Refs to Eject LaVar Ball at Summer Championship

The game was stopped for several minutes while Ball threw his fit, and eventually the referee who gave him the technical was removed from the game by Adidas, which was sponsoring the event.

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. 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.

Big Baller Brand AAU team coach LaVar Ball calls out to his players during an Adidas Summer Championship AAU tournament game at Cashman Center in Las Vegas on Thursday, July 27, 2017. "I get that she's trying to break into the refereeing thing". And she's bad on both of 'em. And she don't understand.

Following the game, LaVar Ball spoke to "Overtime" and ESPN and vented his frustrations about that particular ref and stated she need to stay in her lane which was the nicest thing he said about her as he brought up her not being in shape as well.

Interestingly, Chinese researchers have found it hard to get the genetic changes in every cell of the embryos that they seek edit. It involves using molecular "scissors" to remove undesirable elements of gene sequencing and replace them with new DNA elements.

For a guy who talks about setting an example for his kids so much, he needs to realize you just can't talk to women that way and be openly dismissive in that manner. Whether this official was doing a poor job or not (I really have no idea), there's no reason that her lane shouldn't be officiating a basketball game.

Arguing a call with a female official during the game, the older Ball was ejected. "She ain't got enough on her resume, I could tell".

He told Kristine Leahy of Fox Sports to do the same back in May when she questioned the price and sales of Ball's line of basketball shoes.
