The Dan Le Batard Show: Gives Away Basketball Hall of Fame
Dan hosts a morning show, The Dan Le Batard Show, weekdays with his co-star Jon “Stugotz” Weiner on ESPN Radio. Dan is famous on the show for his humor as he makes jokes about himself to entertain the audience.
However, he is often being criticised for his controversial views, his orthodox appearance and is labeled ‘A Mindless Racist.’ The Deadspin quoted on March 2012:
The most common complaint about Le Batard is that he’s so aggressively pro-athlete that even his most plaid columns feel like they should come with pompoms.
In 'Basketball Hall of Fame,' which is given every year by Basketball Writers' Association of America, Dan had a vote as a sportswriter. Not happy with administration and processes, he gave away his vote to the sports website Deadspin.
The website used Dan Le Batard's vote as a public opinion poll. This pampered the election process, as it allowed the manipulation of votes.
Following this, the BBWAA imposed a one year ban on Le Batard on January 19, 2014, for his controversial criticisms over the selection process of basketball players.
He was also revoked of his Basketball Hall of Fame for life.

One of America’s most eligible bachelors (once called by People’s magazine) is in no mood to remain a bachelor anymore.
The 49 years old turned out to be too good at keeping secrets. When everyone was in dilemma of the existence of his future wife, he has been secretly dating Miami native Valerie Scheide.
And it turns out; the two recently got engaged as reported by Greg Cote on 13 September 2018. The engaged couple has planned to tie the knots in 2019.

The engaged man is not happy with Greg for unveiling his engagement news as the announcement has not been the way he wanted.
I’m mad right now and hurt and it’s funny. I can’t dispute that this man does whatever he wants, selfishly. But here’s the funniest part about it: What a crappy story in terms of news, ‘journalism news,’ that I’m getting married, and yet it’s the biggest scoop of Greg Cote’s career.
He’s been threatening to report this on me for days, I told him, I think last night on the phone, telling him, ‘Don’t report that! … Let me announce it my way! -(Reported by Jessica Sager on 14 September 2018.)
Now that the truth is out, a huge congratulations to the engaged couple for a happy future.
