Gregg Popovich Weighs In On LaVar Ball's "Meaningless" Opinion

Gregg Popovich Weighs In On LaVar Ball's

Suddenly, their three-game winning streak has propelled them to 14-27.

Aldridge finished with 20 points on the night, while Gasol scored nine points, grabbed 12 rebounds and handed out five assists on the court where he celebrated the Lakers' most recent title. But after multiple meetings and pleas not to publicly disparage their team and coach, the situation remains unchanged.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested Thursday journalists should consider the source before printing comments from outspoken National Basketball Association father LaVar Ball about the job the Lakers' Luke Walton is doing coaching the young, struggling team.

Leonard missed his third straight game with a left shoulder strain, and Parker sat after spraining his right ankle in Sacramento on Monday. Walton wants him to be just as willing to pass when driving down the lane now that Randle is becoming a more regular presence in the starting lineup.

And if he says he can see it, trust him when he says that he believes it. He just delivered a compelling lesson about a topic that actually bares little weight, but he managed to combine values education together with biology to come up with a speech that resonates all the way to Lithuania.

But, for once, the Lakers could finally smile and laugh after two and a half weeks of losing.

It's early still, but it's clear that things aren't OK between Luke Walton and the Lakers organization.

"We didn't play well for the majority of the game", the Spaniard said after the game. Meanwhile, the Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games, 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. "We can't control what's on the outside or who is talking on the outside". "[I am] just trying to be the energy guy, trying to get everybody else to be the same". Conspicuously, that list didn't include a single person from Lakers management.

Why would the Lakers fire Walton?

Talks eventually broke down, but they could pick back up if the Lakers can't find a suitable partner to attach Luol Deng's bad contract or another player to offload.

Los Angeles answered by putting the game away.

"He's a grown man", the Lakers point guard said of his father's comments. "I can't [do] nothing about it".

Nance was not all flash, posting 14 points and 10 rebounds. They might as well make LaVar the coach at that point. At the half, he outscored the Hawks in that category 28-0.

"He pretty much is the offense", Ball said.

"Yes, it feels good to win", said Walton, who received calls from some of his coaching peers expressing support. "Because we're not going to get for you talent-wise what we would want, so let's figure this thing out.' And we did". Instead, the younger Ball insisted that he'll "play for anybody" while Kyle Kuzma didn't mince words in his backing of Walton. "That obviously is not always going to be 100 percent true but that is the messaging all year long". "Don't worry about what people on Twitter are saying, don't worry about what this media outlet is saying or that one or your agent [is saying]".
