ESPN bosses lectured sports dad LaVar Ball, who allegedly made a "completely inappropriate" comment to ESPN's First Take moderator Molly Qerim.

The incident occurred on Monday, when Ball appeared as a guest on First Take to air his grievances over the L.A. Lakers trading his son, Lonzo Ball, to the New Orleans Pelicans for Anthony Davis.

During a segment of the interview, Qerim said to Ball, "LaVar, can I switch gears with you because I have a question here."

Ball replied, "You can switch gears with me anytime."

Qerim paused for a moment, then moved on to her next question. She referred to the comment at the end of the show.

"If anyone's calling HR today it's me," Qerim said.

Social media users made matters worse by claiming Ball, who is happily married to Tina Ball (pictured), was "shooting his shot" at Qerim.

Ball's representative, Denise White, said Ball's comments were in no way intended to be sexual, but ESPN wasted little time rebuking the Big Baller Brand founder.

"LaVar Ball's comment to Molly Qerim Rose was completely inappropriate," ESPN said in a statement to TMZ. "We made him aware of that."

Qerim, who is married to ESPN sports analyst Jalen Rose, said she was glad that "ESPN had my back."

"ESPN was really supportive," Qerim told TMZ on Tuesday. "All the executives had my back. Much appreciated."

    I saw it but you know that’s her role on ESPN to be the sex symbol hot chick on the show... and black males who swirl like those types so the inappropriate flirting is what’s good or normal for interactions between those types. She did marry her NBA coworker.. so it’s not that outlandish

  • Raquel

    I got nothing except LaVar's wife looka like a man.

  • MsPam

    “ her role to be the sex symbol” I call espn women bobble head. They just nod their heads on the shows.

  • EMILY POST

    She looks like a bootleg Kardashian cousin... lol the white men at the top of espn know who to send in and hire ...they let her know they had her back... lol of course they have her back ... lmaoo

    I didn't take it the way she took it.

    It was an obvious flirt... The niggga did the "driving stick" motion with his hands too.... People stay tryna be bird box to the actions of these entitled mf's.

    Ball feels he is super entitled... Look at how he inserted himself into.his son's bb careers. That mf needed to be checked.... Don't nobody want his big teef advances

  • Renee26

    Some people aren't here for the good ol boys antics anymore. Just cause I'm pretty and sexy doesn't mean ion deserve the same respect as Cheryl Miller or some dude lookin female who's involved in sports.

  • EMILY POST

    I will never say what a thotiana won’t do especially if she is willing to sleep with her co workers. He just don’t have enough money ... and she already nabbed a retired NBA contract coworker... what would be his use??

  • goat

    She was the one that brought up "switching gears"
    He agreed "You can switch gears with me anytime"

    I didn't see it, but maybe he had a creepy look on his face to insinuate something else.

  • Gloria

    I didn’t see anything flirty or creepy about what he said. She asked him if she could switch gears and he responded that she could switch gears at anytime during the interview. These hoes wanna cry out “me too” and “sexual predator” for the most mundane shit now

  • EMILY POST

    Some people....... but Save the feminisms bs she bagged the NBA commentator dude at her job so that flirting ish ain’t way out there.... she used to dress like she was going to the club prior to her landing the big score retired nba contract!

  • KneeSee

    Lavar's sports knowledge wasn't the reason he booked that show. They wanted him because of his antics, and he gave it to them and more.

  • grenadiadrian

    Chill, Ms. Swan ?

  • Tinytoon

    Have Lavar whiten his buttered teeth? Asking for a friend.....

  • stav

    There is no way this man(I use the term quite loosely) isn't physically and verbally abusive to his wife and all his kids. I believe his son offered to leave the Lakers to get out of the same state as his monster of a dad...hopefully he takes his brothers with him! Get mom out too!

  • Topic Influencer

    Well well well. All I ever said about this big mouth, ignorant, piggish ass man and his mediocore ass ball playing boys has come to pass aint it?

    I'm sorry but are they really tripping of this response??? They reaching now!

  • Raquel

    She's probably one of those women who think that EVERY black man wants them so they read too much into sh*t and make mountains out of mole hills. This is what happens when black men place these sorts of women on pedestals as if they are God's gift; they now have the free for all to use that "power" to do what they will. Black men gave her her big head and this probably isn't her first scenario, I'm sure.

  • Karen Brady

    Damn, get out of my head. "She's probably one of those women who think that EVERY black man wants them "

  • Seldomseen

    We don’t want him in New Orleans

  • Topic Influencer

    She reminds me of Rachel Roy.

  • Renee26

    Yeah she favors her too

  • PrettyMeka08

    I think she’s still recovering from having a serious stroke. She’s been very ill.

  • Topic Influencer

    He did the gear shift kinda like grabbing a dack move. He was inapporpriate.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    And he's a marketing genius...this man owned BBB gyms then literally went to be a helicopter parent to his three suns which led to him finessing a Laker deal for his oldest...all of this is due to Lavar who made 3+ million dollars since his "fight" with trump on twitter/IG last year....oh and he gets paid to commentate on ESPN and other outlets...Chile..

  • Renee26

    ? I love GaGa... This gif is everything

  • Topic Influencer

    I mean yes good for him. But his boys still are mediocore at best. So bravo to him indeed for doing that with low level players

  • PrettyMeka08

    Maybe y’all can soften him up with some southern hospitality.

  • Renee26

    Remember when she was sick and he wouldn't let the boys visit her??

    I wanna say she had a stroke... I imagine him moonwalking past her while she was laying on the floor shakin (Whitney style)

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thats what makes him so Genius!!!! He sold snake oil to the league and they ate that shit up!!!

  • Raquel

    Aw, now you done soured my mood. lol Maybe there are better pics of her then. I dunno.....

    you know Lavar put a target on his kids back running his light skinned lips!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe
  • Candance

    It was a compliment! Thats why everyone is gay no one likes being flattered by the opposite sex anymore. Its so weird. Yes maybe it was inappropriate but it was a Pun.... calm down HR caller!

  • PrettyMeka08

    Yeah I like to see pics of people in better/healthier times. That pic in article looks like after the stroke. She was walking on a cane too.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes, she had a stroke which isn't surprising since she's had to put up with his corny arse all of these years.

  • Parent

    She pretty and all that. I could see why Lavar said that. Women be taking stuff too far. He was flirty, so. Shoot, looking at his wife I could see why.

    Did not know Jalen Rose and her were husband and wife.

  • Raquel

    Damn, Well, I am glad she's better. I like to joke and talk sh*t but not if I know a person is sick or dealing with something.

    He said nothing wrong he just being him , even molly wasn’t offended , she looked happy as if it was a compliment / flirt . This fool talks up his white wife on every interview he does. Only white new age feminists are offended.

  • stav

    That was mortifying, as if seeing her children could not have provided some of the best medicine..love! He is despicable!

    Jalen call me ?. This plastic Kardashian lookalike will be ok. Lavar teeth is the color of urine.

  • Renee26

    You tried it ?... It was taken just how he said it. The first time I heard the story I was just listening not seeing her appearance and I felt the same way. Second time I watched and saw the look on her face and his hand movements... He probably flirts with women all the time.

  • JV

    It was pretty clearly a sexual reference. I don't like him at all, so maybe I'm biased to hate anything he says.

  • JV

    ESPN should never have put him on the air.

  • Renee26

    He sure is

  • Coy little wink

    Of the Fab five I will gladly take Chris Webber LAWD ?

  • Renee26

    Right

  • JV

    OK, but if she's a bobblehead, what is Skip Bayless? I enjoy sports, and do consume sports media, but I avoid watching ESPN like the plague. And I do read ESPN Plus articles from time to time, but almost anything outside of pure highlights is terrible.

  • goat

    I'm always gonna try it..lol I like to push the issue sometime.
    Using hand motions to simulate "switching gears" is a reach, that's how you change gears. Now if he was shifting gears using rapid fire pelvic thrusts I can see the arguement.

    But I can imagine he had this creepy look when he was doing this and I can see why there is a reaction to his comments.

  • Renee26

    Ummm hmmm I know

  • goat

    Me just being petty. Don't mind me...lol

  • Gloria

    I didn’t see the video since Sandra didn’t post one. His words don’t come off as creepy but I can see if it came across as creepy based on his tone, facial expressions, and hand gestures tho.

  • Renee26

    Not really

  • therealashland

    That’s a hard reach ,...

  • Renee26

    I know lol... Tre asked ol girl if she knew how to drive stick.... She was willin ta learn

  • JV

    I'm not sure what "out his balls in his mouth" means, but somehow I truly believe that's accurate when it comes to LaVar. Everything he says is stupid.

  • Renee26

    Now if he was shifting gears using rapid fire pelvic thrusts I can see the arguement.

    I just HOLLERED ???

  • goat

    I can't stop looking at that strong jawline.
    The indentation of the cheeks was a give away for me. They all seem to have that indentation like the Joker.

    "Babe remma that time back in '93 you called timeout and yall aint have NONE LEFT? And my Heels went on to win it? And Donald Williams of Garner got Tourney MVP??"

    He would quit my black ass.

  • JV

    She was being professional -- "Let's stay on topic" -- and if she hadn't, I'm sure people on the internet would be slamming her for "acting like a hysterical woman" or something. As an interviewer, she was put in a really tough spot with that, and at the end of the interview she even quipped, "If anyone is going to HR, it's me." So she knew he was out of line.

    Oh no. Its me. I love college hoops and live for it. But this draft class is just kinda strange. Other than Williamson and dude from Murray State its just nobody who is "like that" for me.

    *I think De'Andre Hunter is the one who is going to the Cavs. Come back Friday morning to see if Im right lol

  • Vonda K

    Was thinking the same. All Inter changeable.
    Fake hair, orange (even the black ones), duck lips, highlighter to death.

  • JV

    It's an underwhelming draft. Hunter probably has the highest floor and lowest ceiling of potential top 10 guys. With Sexton and flotsam I think I'd rather gamble on Bol Bol staying healthy.

    I actually caught that part live on TV and I didn't take it that way. I honestly don't believe he meant that in a sexual manner. But people have to be mindful of that in 2019 we are in that Me Too Era. They'll take nothing and twist it around into something. Molly is annoying. Doesn't she has some condition that doesn't allow her to have sex ? lol

    Anyway, they need to bring Cari Champion back on First Take. I heard that Undisputed is beating them in the ratings.

  • Mielle Downey

    Is every ones mind in the gutter? Where does it say that his comments were sexist? " you can switch gears with me anytime" She said switch gears with him and he indulged her. Feminist need to chill and place blame on the one who said it first. Molly said it first and the black man who repeated it is to blame? Gtfoh

  • Mielle Downey

    She asked if they could switch gears and he said sure we can switch gears. She is wrong for even entertaining it and then hiding her hands. White feminist are the devil.

  • Mielle Downey

    She said it first then hid her cave demon hands. She asked to switch gears and he indulged her. No harm no foul.

  • kboogie

    "Excuse Me can anyone say "$ tree"... "Meeee".....?????

    It’s total overreacting on her part - she made it super awkward and and uncomfortable for everyone.

    Uh.... when was the topic changed? White women love to have that victim mentality, don’t they?

    Some men need to wise up & learn to catch phrases to stay a step ahead of such political trappings.

  • Star

    Exactly! I am so sick of people using the movement for reasons like this. If it’s legitimate than fine, but she works in sports and lucky to be there bc her qualifications didn’t get her there all she does is sit there and shake her head. All this is going to do is make it harder for women to work in sports that have earned a spot for real. If she can’t handle a comment then she needs to leave

    LaVar a Scorp? I KNEW HE WAS A SOCIOPATH.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Chile she just looking for a little clout. Please lets not give her any attention so she can go sit down somewhere

  • Allihave2say

    The narcissist is going to run his son's into the ground smoking crack. He is so sick and full of himself he can't let them be individual adults. One son already had a baby out of wedlock and the other arrested for theft. He takes being in his kids' lives too seriously.

  • lovelygamour

    lavar was a guest!!!!! he was making the show fun. you cant go to hr over a guest. you can ask that they not have the guest back but since the channel exist to have guest and show news--- i think they should get host who can roll with it.

    this is also why you dont hire spouses.

    plus, the ball family is under a lot of stress with the mom being ill. I wouldve asked that he not do it again and let it go.

    I don't think that was inappropriate, was he not just being funny and polite? But, as a business woman in a man's woman, I don't get of genes easily.

  • Overpower Radio

    I'm glad you said it. I was about to. She used the term and then took it out of context. He's married, she's married, and they're not even in the same room. She fine, but chill. She feelin herself.

  • Overpower Radio

    I would have asked, well wtf did she mean by it? Cause all he did was say yes, "you can switch gears with me anytime." It didn't sound provocative at all.

  • Overpower Radio

    Damn you're judgmental. You're blaming him cause his kid had a baby with his high school sweet heart before marriage and because his son stole something being dumb, which had nothing to do with the way he raised him, AND he was there to bail him out of his situation and handled ALL of the backlash his son was getting from the media AND THE PRESIDENT of the united states.

    Bash him for what. He's not perfect, but he is a strong father-figure in his children's lives. I wish my pops was around like that. He loves their mom, he has no addictions, he's not abusive. Let him live.

  • Overpower Radio

    That's too much work. He said what he said. He wasn't out of line. Later for whoever sees it as such, INCLUDING ESPN. I hope he flipped on them for letting her get away with that. If she thought the term "switching gears" was inappropriate she shouldn't have said it. What she's accusing him of is out of his character. He's married and loves his sick wife. I don't think he'd ever embarrass her by making sexual advances to another woman on tv. He loves his kids too much to do that.

    He sure doesn’t! ????

  • Wreckognize Game

    She is in an “everybody wants me” kind of girl. I don’t know much about the man but it looks like he was ready to change the topic and leaned in for her question. Get over yourself mini KKW.

  • Guess Who

    I'd say she's at least 45 and not a year younger....

    Minimum.

    LMAO he got a snap-on smile you say??

    He wanted to remind us ?

  • Renee26

    LMAO... He could always say no ?

    My son's temples were receding, his barber tried it a couple of times with the spray hair, not the black stuff. My son kindly asked him to stop. He just goes bald now.

  • Dowoop

    Really? Really? This man is known for inappropriate comments. I went into this article expecting to find something much worse. But kudos to ESPN for sticking up for their employees with their fake outrage.

  • Dowoop

    If she took that as provacative then be should also be offended seeing as how he just repeated exactly what she said.

  • Vixen

    If he would’ve said you can switch my gears anytime then I can understand it to be inappropriate but this right here is reaching. Its mess like this that will cause trouble for actual victims not being believed because of women like her. This is why jobs that were “created” for testosterone did not want women employed because these types of women take everything out of context and “F” it up for other women.

  • GAPeach
  • JV

    LOL. Yep.

  • Trace da Ace

    I really feel like they are reaching with this comment......

  • Decked Out

    REALLY. This Kartrashian wanna be. BUT Jalen married HER????
    Oh well, let me go back to my Office and work.

  • Decked Out

    ...or some ROOTS on his AZZ.

  • dru and neil

    The reason it was deemed sexual harassment is because even though it was a simple comment, it wouldn’t have been said to a man with that tone. People want to rush to his side because he’s a black man, but he’s not thinking about your black ass though trust and believe that.

  • dru and neil

    Hell, if she was black, Levar Ball wouldn’t have said anything.

  • teather

    Whatever . . . nobody cares about this woman or him. Nobody expects anything from ESPN either. STFU everyone.

  • Psychic Lulu

    Maybe something happened prior to the interview because this was blown out of proportion. She felt offended alright?

  • dru and neil

    I don’t know the woman but she’s working in a male dominated field, trying to be seen equally, then some old man flirts, reminding you that you are just a vagina on the panel. Why should she or anyone have to “handle” that?

  • HelloToni

    So all theses people are defending him think this comment was okay? That's crazy. I don't think it was sexual harassment but be careful men who thinks this is ok because unwanted flirting can be defined as sexual harassment. No wonder its so prevalent. So many people don't know what in appropriate comment is. Too many people thinking comments like that are cool. It''s not like this was a late night variety show and both people were single. This was the Howard Stern show.

  • Psychic Lulu

    She probably likes him and tried to push up on him and he didn't fall for the bait at an earlier time. and here we are?????

  • Psychic Lulu

    ???

  • dru and neil

    I’ve been reading the comments in the thread and it’s pathetic how many black women are rushing to defend Lavar Ball. Black women please stop rushing to the aid of black men who wouldn’t spit on you if you were on fire! Someone even said if she (molly) was black nobody would care, you’re damn right! Lavar Ball included! The comment would have never been made, you think he or his sons f-cking with anybody black?

  • dru and neil

    They know it was sexual in nature they just don’t care because he’s a black man. It’s pathetic. All you have to do is ask yourself if Lavar would have made the exact same comment in the exact same tone to a MAN on the panel. End of discussion.

  • dru and neil

    Asking someone to switch gears is just a question but if they reply back in a flirty way “you can switch my gears anytime you want” in the workplace? Yes, that can be seen as sexual harassment. Would he have said it like that to Stephen? Plus, I don’t really give a sh— about black men like Lavar Ball and Cuba Gooding, they do it to themselves with these white women.

  • Applebootay

    "You can switch gears with me anytime."....that's it? that's the comment? GT-ENTIRE-FOH. He didn't say it sexually, he wasn't....nevermind.......

  • Large Pro

    your horse hair on your head must be eating away at your few brain cells.

  • Large Pro

    Exactly

  • Applebootay
  • Large Pro

    fact..but then claim they are equal to men, i mean pick one already, either you are equal and will be treated like a man or you're not.

  • Applebootay

    and then there's THAT! Old Bish! Don't nobody want to switch your cranky need some lube type gears....

  • Applebootay

    Here you go.....LOL

  • Applebootay

    but if they reply.....so the initial comment can't be taken as suggestive but the repeat is? I've worked as an HR Manager for many years...this would not make it to paper...

  • Applebootay

    a sweet boo boo fvck....is my new phrase....LOL

    Thank you!

  • Star

    So that we are clear, I don’t particularly care for him because I feel he is a blow heart and I am so happy his son was traded so I don’t have to listen to his commentary. With that being said, I saw the clip and I didn’t take it that way. I think it was much to do about nothing. She has had worse said on that show even by her husband Jalen bc he is always putting his foot in his mouth. So why cry wolf now? If you are going to cry wolf do it across the board don’t pick and choose. I have heard some of the most sexiest comments come from her husbands mouth so charity begins at home.

  • MsPam

    True that!

  • Mslife

    I am not going to concern myself with this mess. Especially since it so much more important things going on in the world. Plus I think she definitely using this for more attention. What he said maybe or maybe not be sexually mean. Also I guarantee she heard for sure sexual remarks in her field. I just feel like who cares I am so tired of hearing this mess. I truly don't care.

  • Candance

    Youre taking my comment out of context. ?????

  • Allihave2say

    Stop being a weak.

  • J2PC

    Sexual harassment is real. That I get. But this specific response in question is left up to not only interpretation, but a malenovelent spin with motives. That is why it varies & debatable among many. Lavar wasn't thinking and just being silly or himself in just piggybacking off of what she said but in an upbeat manner to crack jokes, so it seems.

    He should have said that was not my intention.
