LaVar Ball Torched Luke Walton For Having 'No Control' Over The Lakers

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

It was the Lakers' ninth straight loss.

In an interview with ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman, Ball expressed some issues with Walton, including his age, his control of the team and the idea of him coaching either LeBron James or Paul George should either made a decision to come to the Lakers this offseason.

ESPN following LaVar Ball all around the world?

Only, the interview continued, and at one point, Ball was asked plainly if he likes Walton as a coach.

"Nobody wants to play for him".


"My only concern with any of it is for Zo", he said. "Playing like garbage. Something I need to address and fix".

"He is going to speak his mind, he is not going to change", said Lonzo Ball, who says he hasn't spoken to LaVar since his father and two brothers landed in Lithuania, where LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball are playing for the pro team Prienu Vytautas.".

"You would be lying to say that there are guys that are not frustrated on this team", Andrew Bogut told ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk during a December ESPN report. "I coach as if it's not". So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it.

Later, Vitale added: "So pathetic that LaVarBall just rips good ppl ala @Lakers ... he is so sad & we give him a forum for his classless comments!" Sunday's story was the first time, however, that LaVar had outright suggested Walton should not coach the Lakers. "That's what they do.' And it's our job as coaches and an organization to do what's best for our team and our players". "What is he gonna tell them?" He's too young. He's too young ... Magic Johnson, the team's president of basketball operations, has been posting on social media this weekend from Lansing, Mich., where his parents are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.

Walton disregarded the constant criticism coming from his star rookie's father, "I'm fine with it, it doesn't both me". "I know how to coach him". Walton, who said on Friday morning that he is not coaching as if his job is on the line, was asked whether he has received assurances from anyone in Lakers upper management.
