Ball appeared on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" Wednesday to discuss his son's National Basketball Association future and the family's Big Baller Brand line of shoes and apparel.
Prior to the NBA Draft, Ball rebuffed Nike, Adidas and Under Armour, in an attempt to keep Big Baller Brand independent.
When Leahy persisted and tried to explain she wasn't attacking him but simply pointing out that the company should try and also target women (like, 50 percent of the population and more than half of the clothes-buying market), Ball insisted that Big Baller Brand is not a women's company. Nor was disparaging the players Lonzo Ball will be battling for draft position.
"I think in order to have a successful company, you're going to have to have women who like your brand", Leahy said.
Leahy had been critical of the Big Baller Brand in the past.
"Are you threatening me", she asked. He told her to "leave me alone".
LaVar Ball, the mouthpiece that never stops, took a few shots at a female reporter on Wednesday.
Cowherd said he didn't necessarily agree with Leahy but that it was "a good point". He contended that his company is not for women and quickly dismissed her.
Cowherd talked about how Fox Sports reporter Jason Whitlock commented on how Lonzo Ball put out a rap song to garner some "street cred".
Later in the interview, after several tense exchanges with Leahy, Ball said: "I never disrespect women but I tell you what, if you act like that, something's coming to you and it's OK".
"I don't know what it is", he said.
Ball: "I'm not talking to you, you're a hater".
That seemed to set Ball off, who snarled back "stay in your lane" while holding his outstretched palm in a bid to silence and ignore her inquiry.
