VIDEO: LaVar Ball gets female ref replaced after threatening to pull team from court
A female referee was removed from a Big Ballers game after LaVar Ball threatened to pull his team from the court for the second time in a week.
The referee called Ball for a technical foul, which sparked the confrontation, but both Ball and an adidas rep told ESPN’s Jeff Borzello that the reason the ref was pulled was because she and Ball had a previous issue:
LaVar Ball to ESPN after the game on the referee: "She's got a vendetta. She needs to stay in her lane because she ain't ready for this."— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) July 28, 2017
Adidas said it was their decision to replace the referee. Said there was a history between ref and LaVar -- she officiated Wednesday's game.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) July 28, 2017
Before the game was over, Ball would receive a second technical foul and the game was eventually called with two minutes left and Big Ballers losing by 10.
