Jeff Goodman inside access revoked by LaVar Ball, Big Baller Brand in Lithuania

Back in late January, LaVar Ball told ESPN radio hosts he personally sent their colleague Jeff Goodman home from Lithuania for being “sheisty.”

After being with the family in the land of the beautiful basketball for a little over a week, Goodman posted an article on ESPN featuring inside information he learned from Ball about team turmoil in the Los Angeles Lakers locker room. According to Goodman’s source, i.e. LaVar Ball, there is a lack of respect for head coach Luke Walton within the organization, and the team “doesn’t want to play” for him.

The eldest Ball wasn’t a fan of that getting released to the public.

“I sent Jeff Goodman home early,” Ball said. “Otherwise he would have still been out here. But how are you going to be out here if I won’t interview with you no more? You’ve got to come home.

“I’ll never ever EVER do an interview with that guy again. He’s sheisty, and I see that. He wanted to go that route,” he continued. “He did the story he wanted to write, tried to finagle things,” Ball continued. “Guess what? He’s out of the picture now. He can’t come close to my family.”

In the latest episode of Facebook’s “Ball in the Family” documentary series, we got to see the event unfold, and the final product is hysterical.

LaVar Ball certainly has his own issues, but seeing Goodman embarrassed on a reality show after being sent to Lithuania by ESPN is absolutely priceless. After all, whiney Jeff Goodman is the best Jeff Goodman.

    Goodman’s a punk, but that’s what he gets for working with such an egomaniac like Ball.

    Ball clearly expected Goodman to only write fluff pieces. “He did the story he wanted to write”, Uh, yeah, Lavar, that’s what journalists do. They don’t just write what you want them to.

    “Oh no,” said Jeff Goodman. “I guess I will have to leave the Lithuanian professional basketball beat.”

    Who’s regretting what here?

    Does the Ball family really move the meter that much? Wth is wrong with America that we care enough to make it a profitable move for ESPN to send a reporter to Lithuania to cover this farce? Then again, it is ESPN so profitable probably never entered the picture.
