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

It would be interesting to find out who LaVar Ball thinks should coach the Lakers, but he'd more than likely say himself. "Luke doesn't have control of the team no more". We're going through it now, we've been through it previous year. "Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion - that is printed as anything like legitimate - erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN". 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. Carlisle added many coaches "are upset" at ESPN, saying it has now "eroded trust".

Unfortunately for Luke Walton, he has to hear about it from the father of the Lakers' top draft pick. Two years ago, he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an incredible accomplishment.

Walton said that he pulled Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (zero points in 20 minutes) early on because of an uncharacteristically poor attention to defense.

Carlisle is doing his job in advocating for his professional brethren here, but this isn't an ESPN problem, it's a Lakers problem. People don't know why they're in the game. "To have to deal to deal with these kind of ignorant distractions is deplorable".

Carlisle said that didn't mean the sports media behemoth should run news based on what coaches will like. "Everyone knows what is going on with the salary-cap situation next season and all that".

Walton contended that he had not seen any frustrations with Ball in response to his coaching style and said he hoped comments coming from the player's father did not have an impact on the fan narrative or the organization's decision making.

Jack took it in stride, noting, "It's pretty cool".

"I'm saying they should look at their sources and do a better job of determining if their sources have any merit or any validity or are they just blow-hard loud mouths", he said.

So far, the Lakers have been committed to Walton as their coach and have not shown any signs of turning away from him anytime soon. "I could be the 13th or the 14th".
