Michelle Beadle Refused Chance To Interview LaVar Ball On SportsNation

Michelle Beadle and Max Kellerman on SportsNation.


LaVar Ball is out in full force to promote his son Lonzo's first "Big Baller Brand" sneaker, but ESPN's Michelle Beadle isn't having any of it.

The controversial Ball father has appeared on First Take multiple times, and today, The Dan Le Batard Show gleefully called him every few minutes to pitch him new ideas for his burgeoning brand. Don't expect to see him in SportsNation, which is currently airing on ESPN, however.

Host Michelle Beadle posted a screenshot of a text conversation, where she is asked if she wants to try and get Ball on the show.

Her answer was very direct.

Fair enough. So far, it is just Marcellus Wiley, Amin Elhassan, and Beadle, and we wouldn't expect to see Ball swaggering into that Los Angeles studio any time soon. They have discussed the sneakers a bit, however.

Beadle isn't the only one at the Worldwide Leader tired of Ball. Dick Vitale spent some time last night ripping him (and his son Lonzo's NCAA Tournament performance) after the ridiculous prices for Big Baller Brand merchandise dropped last night.
