LaVar Ball: Lakers coach Luke Walton 'doesn't have control' of team

LaVar Ball: Lakers coach Luke Walton 'doesn't have control' of team

"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", LaVar sad. LaVar Ball speaks whatever version of his mind is on his mind, and the central theme is that nobody is more important than his son, and nobody is more equipped to determine that than he is.

Yes, ESPN is a league partner but they pay about $1.4 billion a year to air the league's games. 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.

"But, part of that partnership is that coaches do a lot of things to help them with access, interviews, all those kind of things, and in exchange for that they should back up the coaches", he continued. "Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion that is printed as anything like legitimate erodes trust". It erodes the trust that we built with ESPN, and our coaches are upset. He would talk smack about Steve Kerr if Ball wasn't getting enough time or touches (and trust us, the old man is sure there is no such thing as enough time or touches for him). "I'll play for anybody", Ball answered, according to the Los Angeles Times. After the Lakers ended a nine-game losing skid, Walton was asked about his decision to move Lonzo to the bench earlier than usual and having him run with the second unit.

"Even if you bring in a LeBron or a (Paul) George, he can't coach them guys".

"I would disagree with that", Walton said, via So Cal News Group. "I don't decide who the coach is".

It would seem that the Los Angeles Lakers are growing as sick of LaVar Ball as he is of them, and in that way they deserve each other and all the grief they mutually provide. "Gr8 teacher & role model / if u don't like a situation just QUIT take ball & blame everyone / @ LukeWalton has more CLASS & HOOPS knowledge on his pinkie than LaVar!"

The 30th overall pick fired a couple outlet passes, ran a smooth give-and-go with Ball, and got some buckets himself with a pair of rushes to the rim. You got a 2 and a 3.

I mean, he's our head coach.
