LaVar Ball tells ESPN Walton has lost Lakers; coaches react

Ball did little to put out the fire heating up Walton's seat by refusing to outwardly endorse his coach with his father's comments freshly floating about and with the Lakers on a nine-game losing streak and struggling to compete on a nightly basis.

The fact that the Lakers have been inactive to make trades that most of us think they should, and they've reportedly been exploring said trade options since last season, means that they haven't made up their mind in the front office. The rookie's father has a habit of providing outrageous quotes to get attention, and the team also had a meeting with the parent earlier in the season about toning down criticism centered on the coach and the team.

"Luke Walton does not deserve that".

"In exchange for that, they should back up the coaches", Carlisle said.

There was no immediate comment on the affair from Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, but Walton said he had spoken to club executives. "I don't decide who the coach is". "My only concern with any of it is Zo (Lonzo Ball)".

Price of gas drops in Hartford County
The weak demand, plus high refinery output should keep gas prices low", said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins. Nationally, gas prices have gone down over the last month and stayed pretty flat over the last week.

Lonzo Ball was asked Sunday at the Lakers' shootaround if he likes playing for Walton. I can see it. We went through it a year ago.

The rough stretch Walton is referring to was a nightmarish end to December featuring games against the best teams in the National Basketball Association without break.

"The only thing I would say: Nobody is in the locker room, with these guys every day, " Hornacek said. "Yeah, there probably shouldn't be many comments from outside".

LaVar Ball has made headlines in the past for, among many other things, insisting that no other team should draft Lonzo Ball except the Lakers, placing a $495 price tag on the sneakers offered by his Big Baller Brand clothing line, saying he could beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1 and getting into a rift with President Donald Trump over how LiAngelo Ball was ultimately allowed to return to the USA following his shoplifting issue in China.

Clearly, LaVar is a father who wants to have input on how his sons are coached, who they play with, and what they do on the court. If you don't believe it, just ask me.
