In what appears to be a match made in heaven, outspoken basketball father LaVar Ball has started a feud with ESPN.

Ball, the father of LiAngelo and LaMelo of Lithuania’s Vytautas Prienai–Birštonas and Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo, cut ESPN reporter Jeff Goodman off from access to his sons in Lithuania for being “sheisty.”

Goodman ran an article quoting Ball, who was unhappy with Lakers coach Luke Walton. Harrison said he told Goodman to not publish the quotes about Walton, but the ESPN reporter said he got the OK from Ball.

Video from the Ball family’s Facebook show, “Ball in the Family,” captured the moment LaVar’s associate Harrison Gaines shut Goodman down.

“I’ll never ever do an interview with that guy again,” Ball said on the show.
