The target on Friday?

On Friday, Ball threatened to pull his team off the court again after being assessed a technical foul in the first half of a game against Team BBC. After a long delay, a representative for Adidas, which runs the event, chose to replace the woman before the game continued.

LaVar Ball is never one to shy away from making outlandish comments.

Philander struggled with a stomach bug throughout the day, but showed signs of improving health towards the close of play. It was a day which had hung in the balance for most parts, with neither side seemingly willing or able to take advantage.

After the game, Ball criticized the referee, claiming she had a "vendetta" and saying she needed to "stay in her lane", according to ESPN. But just giving techs and calling fouls, that's no way to do it.

"I know what she's trying to do", he said.

And he was certainly not finished. After the refs had called the game, LaVar was back to one of his catchphrases that had landed him in problematic hot water in the past. And she don't understand.

That is not to say that the bug bounty programs specifically focused on any of these areas will be terminated - they will not. The continuation of the Bounty program is going to be for an indefinite period at the sole discretion of Microsoft.

"We need to get someone else in here", he said, referring to a female official, according to ESPN's Jeff Borzello, who attended the game.

"I don't care if you're a woman or a man or whatever just be good at what you do". Whether this official was doing a poor job or not (I really have no idea), there's no reason that her lane shouldn't be officiating a basketball game. Because she ain't did enough. "They try to go through my kids to get at me".

Ball is serving as head coach of the Big Ballers AAU team that features his son, LaMelo Ball. In May, he told Fox Sports1 reporter Kristine Leahy to similarly "stay in your lane", refusing to look at her after she asked how many Big Baller shoes he's sold and why he doesn't market the company to women.

New CTE study shows alarming numbers for deceased football players
Researchers noted that the most common cause of death for study participants with mild CTE was suicide (27 percent). Athletes who had experienced more concussions had higher levels of tau accumulation.

Ball was ejected later in the game after officials gave him a second technical foul. Apparently the two had a history, and adidas deemed it necessary to replace her.
