LaVar Ball says Lakers 'don't want to play' for Luke Walton

LaVar Ball says Lakers 'don't want to play' for Luke Walton

And now LaVar Ball is talking again. The elder Ball has said that the Lakers' coaching staff is "soft" and doesn't know how to coach his son, and he expressed his displeasure with how Walton was using his son in the fourth quarter of games. "I don't decide who coaches".

So when Walton was asked Friday morning if he wonders whether his job is in danger, his answer was simple.

"I'm fine with it, it doesn't bother me". Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball].

Walton contended that he had not seen any frustrations with Ball in response to his coaching style and said he hoped comments coming from the player's father did not have an impact on the fan narrative or the organization's decision making.

"Speak it into existence", is the phrase he used whenever he spoke with certainty about his son, Lonzo Ball, becoming a Los Angeles Laker.

He added being aware that they have an Aussie market and a global market boosts the likelihood of growing and production. But the government hopes domestic medicinal use, legalized previous year , and exports will rapidly boost production.

"I'll play for anybody", Lonzo said when asked if he was all right with Luke Walton as his head coach, per Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times. If he's ready to play, let him play.

For his part, Walton said he was more concerned with his point guard's development than dealing with criticism from the outspoken LaVar.

Walton said that he pulled Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (zero points in 20 minutes) early on because of an uncharacteristically poor attention to defense. "I think the players are playing very hard, we've been through a hard stretch, but they are giving us what they have and we're going to keep working and we'll be fine". So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it.

According to ESPN, the Lakers also tied for the longest home losing streak of nine games in franchise history. "I've said all along there's always parents, and parents are going to get mad at things, that's what they do".

Kuzma, who has been arguably the team's best player this season, has been struggling as of late and is coming off one of his worst performances of the season against the lowly Charlotte Hornets. All they'd need to win, of course, is LaVar's middle son, LiAngelo, who is not even a fringe National Basketball Association prospect.
