LaVar Ball tells ESPN Walton has lost Lakers; coaches react

09 January 2018, 02:14 | Pamela Mathis

LaVar Ball has consistently violated his pre-draft vow to Magic Johnson that he would not meddle with the team if they picked Lonzo, and that he was playing a character he could flip on and off like a light switch.

As for Lonzo, he insisted his father's comments don't disrupt the locker room but wouldn't elaborate on whether or not he was happy with Walton as the team's coach.

Meanwhile, Walton was asked about Ball's comments and said he felt his players were playing hard and that he was fine with Ball.

"It doesn't bother me", Walton said. "I've played like that my whole life". "They don't want to play for him", said LaVar Ball.

"Even if you bring in a LeBron or a (Paul) George, he can't coach them guys". With six of their last seven losses coming by double-digits, there have been questions regarding Luke Walton and if he has lost the team.

"I view the ESPN article as a disgrace, quite honestly", Carlisle said.

NBA head coaches are hired, fired, and generally judged based on their ability to win basketball games, but the public facing nature of their job makes it useful to have a sense of humor, too.

It seems like we are at the precipice, about to see a larger issue peek over the horizon as the team deals with the Ball family.

The young team's struggles has prompted plenty of comment from the outspoken LaVar Ball, who has criticized Walton's handling of his son. He pulled his son, LaMelo, from his high school in Chino Hills prior to the start of the season because of problems with first-year coach Dennis Latimore. Get rid of everybody. People don't know why they're in the game. Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball]. You can't get more championships.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek, whose team was in Dallas to face the Mavericks and Carlisle on Sunday, suggested that LaVar Ball doesn't know enough about the inner workings of National Basketball Association locker rooms to make conclusions on the coaching process. "Yeah, there probably shouldn't be many comments from outside".
