LaVar Ball: Lakers 'don't want to play' for coach Luke Walton

LaVar Ball: Lakers 'don't want to play' for coach Luke Walton

However when asked whether he enjoyed Walton as a coach, Lonzo did little to stem the speculation, simply answering: "I'll play for anybody".

But Walton said he has spoken to team executives, and has received assurances that his job is safe. "We talk all the time".

LaVar Ball has had issues with his sons' coaches the past few years and even pulled LaMelo from Chino Hills High prior to the start of the season because of problems with first-year coach Dennis Latimore.

"People don't why they're in the game". Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball].

Unfortunately for Luke Walton, he has to hear about it from the father of the Lakers' top draft pick.

"Speak it into existence", is the phrase he used whenever he spoke with certainty about his son, Lonzo Ball, becoming a Los Angeles Laker.

"I just think it's in my head right now".

The teams traded field goals in the final minute of the first half and the Bison took a 17-6 lead into halftime. Stick is completing 62 percent with a program-record 27 touchdown passes to just eight picks.

Only, the interview continued, and at one point, Ball was asked plainly if he likes Walton as a coach. We are going to play for him. He has coached me his whole life. So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it.

The Lakers are 11-27, last in the Western Conference. He might still see some time in the rotation, but it would be in limited minutes.

"I don't see that the players aren't playing hard", Walton said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.

For his part, Walton said he was more concerned with his point guard's development than dealing with criticism from the outspoken LaVar.

"My only concern with any of it is for Zo [Lonzo]. As long as Zo's fine with it and Zo can come out and play ... then it doesn't bother me at all".

"Lonzo looked good, but he also looked disgusted". LaVar wasn't done with Walton, though. "I've said all along there's always parents, and parents are going to get mad at things, that's what they do".

"I know they have my back", Walton said of Lakers management. "They're 100% behind and supporting what we'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!"
