LaVar Ball Torched Luke Walton For Having 'No Control' Over The Lakers
08 January 2018, 03:12 | Rose Hansen
"ESPN is an National Basketball Association partner and they've been a great one", Carlisle said. Part of that partnership is - the coaches do a lot of things to help them with access, interview and all those kinds of things. It erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN, and our coaches are upset, because Luke Walton does not deserve that.
According to Ball - whose youngest son, Lonzo, is the Lakers' starting point guard - Walton no longer possesses the ability to control his team, and his players no longer want to play for him anymore. Everyone can hate it all they want but LaVar Ball has proven himself to be newsworthy - if he weren't, Carlisle wouldn't be bothering to talk about him. He complained that Walton didn't know how to coach Lonzo Ball earlier in the season. LaVar being the father of the team's top draft pick makes things a bit different, but he has no control over how the team plays or what moves they make.
The comments from Ball were inflammatory towards Walton. Two years ago, he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an unbelievable accomplishment.
When he was questioned whether he was implying ESPN should only write to please the coaches he said, "They should look at their sources and do a better job of determining whether they have any merit or any validity or are they just blowhard loudmouths". That's what I'm saying. "I don't know what they're doing". Off of that, he earned that Laker job. "To have to deal with these kinds of ignorant distractions is deplorable".
LaVar may not have approved of Lonzo's minutes, but the rookie played well with 11 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals behind 4-of-8 shooting from the field.
The outspoken father has gone on record to state that all of his sons will someday play for the Lakers, but if continues to trash people in the organization and make life miserable for people, he'll be looking at none of sons playing for the team. "I don't decide who coaches". Nevertheless, LaVar is making these remarks all the way from Lithuania while everyone back in Los Angeles has to answer for them.
