In last week’s column, “Big Baller banned,” I opined about the infamous interaction between LaVar Ball and Molly Qerim that resulted in Ball getting banned from ESPN. Due to the nature of the topic, I expected that some readers would experience ruffled feathers.

LaVar Ball is no stranger to making waves in the media. The most well-known NBA dad shot onto the scene by saying outlandish things in front of every camera and microphone in his vicinity. No matter the time or day, Ball always has something slick to say.
