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

"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", LaVar said, via ESPN. Lonzo said his dad "is going to say what he wants to say" while also pointing out that he can't "decide who coaches".

The comments from Ball were inflammatory towards Walton.

"In exchange for that, they should back up the coaches", Carlisle said. "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!"

Vitale was less jarred by Ball making life miserable for his son Lonzo, who plays under Walton, than he was by his own company for enabling him.

But we're glad Walton went for it, because this is a soundbite worth replaying all the time.

But the pricey system required an equally pricey PC, and the cable attachments between the two made for a clunky experience. The Vive Pro and the wireless adaptor are two features that may help foster more interest from mainstream consumers.

"They're all on the same idea of it's our job as coaches to coach our teams and not be concerned with parents and what other people outside the organization think", Walton said.

The rookie played 30 minutes in the win, tied for the most on the team, so there should be no real controversy over playing time.

All the way back in March, Scott Van Pelt vowed he would not talk about Ball following comments he made about LeBron James' kids, prompting the superstar to say, "Keep my family out of your mouth". ESPN is an National Basketball Association partner, and they've been a great one. LiAngelo Ball left UCLA after getting suspended and arrested for shoplifting during the Bruins' season-opening trip to China in November, and LaMelo Ball was removed from Chino Hills High in California so he could join the Lithuanian club. On one hand, personal preference may dictate that some never want to see LaVar Ball utter another word about the National Basketball Association. You can't get more championships.

"Get rid of everybody", LaVar Ball told ESPN. Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball]. And it's a win.

That was just way too far for Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle, who proceeded to blast ESPN for posting the article and giving LaVar Ball a platform to speak these things.
