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. During the meeting they asked for a more positive tone from LaVar Ball.
Walton got the Lakers' coaching job after being the interim coach with Golden State two years back when Steve Kerr had back surgery. And it's a hard task, and if you don't believe it just ask me. However, he also said Walton isn't the right coach for the team even if the Lakers do eventually sign James. "We're going to play for him".
That's why on Sunday before the Mavericks played NY, he fired back at a story heavily quoting LaVar Ball, the outspoken father Los Angeles point guard Lonzo Ball, about Lakers' coach Luke Walton's control of the team.
"My job is to play basketball", Ball said when asked about having a preference for playing for certain coaches.
"I'll play for anybody", the rookie point guard said following the Lakers morning shoot around at Staples Center.
"You can't give my son the best player in the league, and don't expect them not to win", he said.
In response to Ball's comments, Walton told reporters that he did not feel that his job was in jeopardy. I don't know what they're doing.
The comments from Ball were inflammatory towards Walton.
"People don't why they're in the game".
Speaking from a resort in Birstonas, where his youngest sons LiAngelo and LaMelo are preparing to make their professional debuts for Lithuanian franchise Prienu Vytautas, LaVar told ESPN's Jeff Goodman that "Luke [Walton] doesn't have control of the team no more".
"I don't think so", Ball responded following Sunday morning shootaround when asked point blank if he thought Walton had lost the locker room. He has coached me his whole life. So, he is definitely going to have a strong opinion about it.
Ball was asked directly if he likes Walton as his head coach. "So when they have comments on teams, chemistry, that kind of stuff". "I think the players are playing very hard, we've been through a hard stretch, but they are giving us what they have and we're going to keep working and we'll be fine". That is just distractions that we can't let affect us.
