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

Lonzo Ball Julius Randle Larry Nance Jr

But LaVar Ball seems to think it should be.

"People don't why they're in the game". He has coached me his whole life.

However when asked whether he enjoyed Walton as a coach, Lonzo did little to stem the speculation, simply answering: "I'll play for anybody". "As long as Zo is fine with it and Zo can come in and play and it doesn't affect mine and his relationship, then it doesn't bother me at all".

Lakers executives met with LaVar Ball on November 29 to ask him to tone down comments he had made questioning Walton's rotations and overall usage of his son, the No. 2 pick in June's draft.

LaVar stayed as silent as he could, but then he made a decision to renew his one-sided rivalry with the Lakers head coach while in Lithuania.

Walton disregarded the constant criticism coming from his star rookie's father, "I'm fine with it, it doesn't both me".

"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'll play for anybody", Ball said. If he's ready to play, let him play.

"My job is to play basketball", Ball said when asked about having a preference for playing for certain coaches. "My only concern with any of it is for Zo", Walton said, brushing off the comments.

"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.

The Lakers take a nine-game losing streak into Sunday night's home game against the Atlanta Hawks.

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

LaVar added that he expects LeBron James to come to the Lakers because coming to the Lakers and winning a championship with a third team would be the only way James could surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest player ever. So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it. "And it's our job as coaches, and coaches in the organization to do what's best for our team and our players and we make those decisions based on what we see every single day in the facility and on the court".
