With ESPN distancing itself from LaVar Ball after giving an inappropriate commentary to moderate Molly Qerim in the air, Qerim was accused of being hypersensitive, vengeful, and even personally ineligible for the ban on Ball. Qerim's husband, ESPN analyst and former NBA star Jalen Rose, finally had enough this week. He released an Instagram live story to tell his opinion and to clear the air about what happened between his wife and Ball.
Rose started with the most important thing: Qerim has a right to their feelings, no matter what others think of them.
"No matter where you stand, you can feel that what he said was inappropriate. You can feel that she overreacted. However you feel, you have a right to your opinion. But do you know what you are not allowed to do? Tell her how she should feel.
Since then, Rose has tried several times to call Ball and send him a text message (Rose says he "respects" Ball) but has not received any answer and he has no patience for anyone who accuses him or Qerim of being personally banned by the ESPN
"Molly talks to TMZ and they ask her a question: 'How are you feeling with LaVar? Forbidden?' She said Clearly, "That's above my pay grade, I do not know about that."
Then it became someone who said he was banned by ESPN, you and I have No lyrics, no emails, no pledges sent to ban someone from ESPN – the company we work for and we do not own, idiots. "
Rose does not do that like that Using the word "forbidden", strictly speaking, that was not what ESPN did a statement that there are no plans to have Ball as an on-air guest again in the future. Rose pointed out that Ball is likely to be in news coverage for the network – he'll be at the next season playing his son Lonzo for the New Orleans Pelicans, and he'll be next in the NBA draft Year when his son LaMelo is picked.

Rose also defended Qerim from critics who claimed that there was a racist background to the ordeal.
"Then it happened," Oh Molly, you banished a black man from ESPN. "You know, she's married to a black husband, right? She has the NFL, the NBA, college basketball, MMA. .. she's been doing it for 15 years she knows how to navigate, she knows how to take care of herself.
Someone pays her to talk about sports She's a vet She woke up that morning and said, "Oh, I'll see what I can do to trap LaVar." It had nothing to do with his race, idiots … If she did somehow felt that way What he said she somehow sensed what he said you know what? I drive with her. "
Rose has his WI It's back, just what a good spouse and partner is doing.
