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

Luke Walton and Magic Johnson

Rookie Lonzo Ball made his return recently against the Charlotte Hornets after his shoulder injury, but LaVar was none too pleased about the 27 minutes he played during that game. People don't know why they're in the game. He has coached me his whole life.

When asked about his job security last week, Walton said, "I coach as if it's not" in jeopardy.

The comments from Ball were inflammatory towards Walton.

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.

Asked if he disagrees with the idea that he's lost the locker room, Walton responded, "I would disagree with that, yes".

"I'll play for anybody", Lonzo said when asked if he was all right with Luke Walton as his head coach, per Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.

Hundreds of people including women and children have sat on the Eastern Express Highway in Mumbai protesting against those involved in the violent clashes in Pune yesterday.

"Nobody wants to play for him", Ball added.

"My job is to play basketball".

Ball suggested the Lakers would be fine moving most of their team to land LeBron James, who can become a free agent next season, as long as they had some rebounders and his three sons on the roster (LiAngelo being the other).

Walton said Sunday that he was "fine" with LaVar's comments, on one condition. So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it.

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.

"That is just his opinion", Lonzo Ball said. "We're not going to shoot well every night, but you can always play good defense". My concerns are coaching our team and prepping for games and working with what gives us the best chance of winning. I don't know what they're doing. "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!"
