Michelle Beadle was not about to allow LaVar Ball to dominate a discussion of his son, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, during a Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s “SportsNation.”

Beadle listened as panelist LZ Granderson brought up the outspoken, elder Ball’s name during the aforementioned discussion about his son.

“No, we’re not speaking of his father,” Beadle said, via the New York Post.

Granderson made note that LaVar Ball has been conspicuously quiet of late, Beadle suggested that’s a good thing.

“Because he’s not in the country. Let it stay that way,” Beadle retorted.

Who doesn’t love Michelle Beadle? She’s fearless and speaks her mind, winning combination. Stay down Lavar Ball!
