It's not clear whether his response to Sargent was intentional, though it may indicate that the president was at least aware of Sargent's criticism.
Sargent's piece is highly critical of Trump, accusing him of peddling a message to his supporters that "the system is unfairly rigged on behalf of minorities".
Lavar Ball is unapologetic in his speech and constantly stands by what he says, despite what everyone else thinks. Sargent had shared his opinion article about Trump's latest tweetstorm related to LaVar Ball, whom the president has repeatedly called out for not thanking him properly for his role in resolving a shoplifting charge in China against Ball's son.
LaVar Ball, whose eldest son, Lonzo, plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, has repeatedly minimized Trump's involvement in winning the players' release, telling CNN earlier this week: "If I feel nobody did anything, I don't have to go around saying thank you to everybody".
"There is this desire, I think, to find the right person to go after, who fits a certain template", he told Mr Berman.
"It wasn't the White House, it wasn't the State Department, it wasn't father LaVar's so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME".
'They were headed for 10 years in jail!,' he added.
"It seems trite to say that Trump likes to pick fights with black people-he picks fights with everyone, in the most shocking and crass ways-but the president does have a knack for knocking down the kinds of black folks members of his base want to see knocked down", The Atlantic concluded this week.
Asked by ESPN later about Trump's role in securing his son's release, LaVar Ball said: "Who?"
Trump responded by calling Ball a "poor man's Don King but without the hair" and an "ungrateful fool" in subsequent tweets. Trump claimed he was responsible for getting the incident resolved and the players back home.
In addition to defending his family against the president's attacks, Ball has also generated significant exposure for his Big Baller Brand apparel and footwear company.
