LaVar Ball appeared on ESPN’s First Take on Monday and made a comment to Molly Qerim Rose that she deemed “inappropriate.” When she said, "LaVar, can I switch gears with you because I have a question here," Ball said, “I’ll switch gears with you anytime.”  

And Keefe, Andy Hart and Wiggy discussed this incident on Dale & Keefe on Tuesday.

“She made it awkward,” Wiggy said. “She paused.”

“Did she?” Keefe said.

“If you know LaVar Ball, that’s his personality,” Wiggy responded.

Wiggy didn’t think this was a sexual remark, while Keefe and Andy Hart argued it was.

“You can’t say that, though,” Keefe said.

“People just don’t like LaVar Ball,” Wiggy said. “It’s not that serious.”

ESPN issued a statement about LaVar Ball’s comment, saying, "LaVar Ball’s comment to Molly Qerim Rose was completely inappropriate and we made him aware of that."
