Kristine Leahy: Standing Up For Herself By Taking On Lavar Ball

Right now, there is no more polarizing figure in sports than Lavar Ball, the father of top Los Angeles Lakers draft pick Lonzo Ball. The elder Ball has made the headlines even more than his son has, with his outspoken opinions, outrageous antics, and out-of-touch attitudes toward women. Kristine Leahy, the co-host of NBC's American [...] Right now, there is no more polarizing figure in sports than Lavar Ball, the father of top Los Angeles Lakers draft pick Lonzo Ball. The elder Ball has made the headlines even more than his son has, with his outspoken opinions, outrageous antics, and out-of-touch attitudes toward women. Kristine Leahy, the co-host of NBC’s American Ninja Warriors, has injected herself into the conversation about Lavar Ball through her co-hosting gig on Fox Sports Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd. Leahy hasn’t been afraid to openly criticize Ball, especially when it comes to his sexist remarks and actions. Her remarks have drawn a lot of press and a lot of controversy, but when we spoke to her, she told us she felt like she had no choice but to speak out on behalf of those who are offended by Ball, and her American Ninja Warrior co-host, Matt Iseman, says he supports her 100%. Watch Leahy and Iseman on American Ninja Warriors, Monday nights at 8/7c on NBC, and listen to Leahy daily on Fox Sports Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

LaVar Ball Pulls Son LiAngelo From UCLA Basketball Team

The UCLA Bruins men's basketball team has one less player… On Monday, LaVar Ball confirmed to ESPN he pulled son LiAngelo Ball from the university without playing a single game. As we reported, the freshman — along with teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — made headlines when they were released from China after facing years in [...] The UCLA Bruins men's basketball team has one less player... On Monday, LaVar Ball confirmed to ESPN he pulled son LiAngelo Ball from the university without playing a single game. As we reported, the freshman -- along with teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill -- made headlines when they were released from China after facing years in prison for shoplifting. The students were suspended indefinitely due to the incident. Video: Trump Jokes About Overturning Obama's Turkey Pardons LaVar told the publication: "We are exploring other options with Gelo... He's out of there." The father of three basketball players is upset with how the school is treating his son, and even compares his punishment to him being in "jail." "I'm not sitting back and waiting... He wasn't punished this bad in China... We get back over here and the consequences were even stiffer than China. So basically they're in jail here." Instead of pursuing another college basketball team, LaVar will prepare LiAngelo for the 2018 NBA Draft. "I'm going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have... He's not transferring to another school... The plan is now to get Gelo ready for the NBA draft." That same day, UCLA coach Steve Alford also confirmed the news, and released the following statement: "We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA... We respect the decision he and his family have made, and we wish him all the best in the future." After the China incident, LaVar refused to thank Donald Trump for his reported participation in his son's release, prompting the President to call him the "poor man's version of Don King" and an "ungrateful fool."

Trump said he personally intervened and asked President Xi Jinping of China to release the players. LaVar told ESPN about Trump, “Who? What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing.
