LaVar Ball’s appearance on “First Take” on Monday might have been his last on any ESPN media platform. According to The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch, ESPN has “no plans moving forward” to have Ball make any future appearances.
There will be no LaVar Ball on any ESPN platform heading forward — at least as of now. Asked if Ball will be used as an on-air guest, an on-the-record source for digital, or a background source for ESPN, an ESPN spokesperson said,"We have no plans moving forward."

This news comes as a result of comments he made to host Molly Qerim during the show, when he appeared to hit on her.
The comments were certainly unprofessional, but the response is a bit of an overreaction to say the least. Both ESPN and Qerim addressed the incident on Tuesday and that appeared to be the end of it.
Those responses apparently weren’t enough. So LaVar’s now been essentially banned from ESPN.
