"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", Ball told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
Walton said the comments didn't concern him, as long as they didn't adversely affect his player. Get the app and get the game. Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion that is printed as anything like legitimate erodes trust.
But, in the midst of a nine-game losing streak, that side of the ball has suddenly become its biggest problem, as seen in a 108-94 loss to Charlotte. "Luke doesn't have control of the team no more".
This is hardly LaVar's first time taking shots at Luke and the coaching staff.
"He's going to speak his mind", Lonzo Ball said of his father.More news: Activist Erica Garner Dies at 27
"I feel very secure in my job status right now", Walton said.
The fact that the Lakers have been inactive to make trades that most of us think they should, and they've reportedly been exploring said trade options since last season, means that they haven't made up their mind in the front office.
Hornacek gave his two cents on Ball's remarks.
"They're soft. They don't know how to coach my son", he said of the Lakers in November, per Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report. "So when they have comments on teams, chemistry, that kind of stuff". So yeah, they probably shouldn't be making any comments from the outside. "It's a good feeling, pretty gratifying coming back from all the rehab and the injuries and a couple setbacks I had along the way to make it to a point where I guess I'm solidified at least for the rest of the seasons it's a cool, nice little, I don't know, point where I guess I can look back and appreciate all the hard work that I had to get to this point".
LaVar Ball has made headlines in the past for, among many other things, insisting that no other team should draft Lonzo Ball except the Lakers, placing a $495 price tag on the sneakers offered by his Big Baller Brand clothing line, saying he could beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1 and getting into a rift with President Donald Trump over how LiAngelo Ball was ultimately allowed to return to the USA following his shoplifting issue in China.
