LaVar Ball made another appearance on ESPN's First Take this morning to discuss the blockbuster Lakers-Pelicans trade that included his son, Lonzo Ball, getting shipped to New Orleans in a package for Anthony Davis.

Of course, LaVar had some strong comments on the move, saying he's happy to be in New Orleans because the Lakers are a sinking ship.

LaVar had previously said that the Lakers would "never" win another NBA championship as a result of the move.

"I guarantee: Like I say again, it will be the worst move the Lakers ever did in their life and they will never win another championship," LaVar Ball told ESPN on Saturday. "Guarantee it."

LaVar also made an inappropriate comment to ESPN's Molly Qerim during his appearance on the show.

Qerim, the co-host of First Take, asked LaVar if they could "switch gears" in the conversation.

LaVar responded: “You can switch gears with me anytime.”

This is not the first time LaVar has been called out for a comment made to a female host during a show appearance.

The patriarch of the Big Baller Brand was criticized harshly for telling Kristine Leahy to "stay in your lane" while appearing on Colin Cowherd's show.
