LaVar now wants $3B if shoe cos. want deal

Ball had appeared on "The Herd With Colin Cowherd" radio show to discuss his son's prospects.

Appearing on Fox Sports 1 with Colin Cowherd, the father of National Basketball Association prospect Lonzo Ball repeatedly gave rude responses to co-host Kristine Leahy's questions and told her to "stay in her lane".

Maybe LaVar Ball would have killed Michael Jordan one-on-one when Ball was in his prime.

"I don't look over there because she scares me". But I tell you what, if you act like that, guess what? She went on FOX Sports 1's Speak For Yourself moments after the brand unveiled its signature shoe and blasted Ball for not marketing to women.

Asked about his problem with Leahy, Ball said, "My problem with you is that you are a hater".

Check out the clips and Twitter reactions below.

The comment ignited a tense argument between Ball and Leahy that lasted a couple of minutes.

"Uh, if you have a women's company", Ball retorted, a comment Leahy found incredulous.

"I would never wear a Big Baller shirt", he continued, mocking Leahy. Like I said, there's different amounts. Anyway, Colin, like I was telling you...

Leahy has been critical of Ball and his family in the past. "I would never threaten you", Ball said. James, upon hearing this, essentially told LaVar to stay in his lane.

"I just said if you want to work with Nike, Adidas and Under Armour to maybe have something that appeals to women", she explained.

Ball had been talking to Cowherd about the company. "He seems to be just somebody that's out there trying to bring all the attention that he can to himself, and I don't know what the goal is for that".

Leahy: I'm actually saying it as a point of advice.
