Mavs coach Rick Carlisle bashes LaVar Ball for criticism of Luke Walton

"I'll play for anybody", Ball said. Part of that partnership. the coaches do a lot of things to help them with access, interviews and all those kinds of things. It erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN, and our coaches are upset, because Luke Walton does not deserve that. In exchange for that, they should back up the coaches.

Walton said the comments didn't concern him, as long as they didn't adversely affect his player. Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion that is printed as anything like legitimate erodes trust.

This isn't the first time LaVar Ball has tried to put a spotlight on Walton's back. LaVar being the father of the team's top draft pick makes things a bit different, but he has no control over how the team plays or what moves they make. He complained that Walton didn't know how to coach Lonzo Ball earlier in the season. "I don't know what they're doing". Two years ago, he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an awesome accomplishment.

What the Sessions Memo Means for Hemp, Medical Marijuana and You
He later became a career state and federal prosecutor who has spoken favorably of a previous federal marijuana crackdown. Attorney General Jeff Sessions removed an Obama-era memo to allow states to govern marijuana regulations.

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. That's what I'm saying. Off of that, he earned that Laker job. "To have to deal with these kind of ignorant distractions is deplorable".

Carlisle said that didn't mean the sports media behemoth should run news based on what coaches will like.

When Walton spoke at shootaround on Sunday morning, he said he had not yet had a conversation with Lonzo Ball about his father's comments. "Yeah, there probably shouldn't be many comments from outside".

A spokesperson for the Etowah County Sheriff's Office said they've spoken to a person of interest but no charges have been filed. On Tuesday morning, Johnson's home in Gadsen, Alabama went up in flames and the blaze is now being investigated for arson .

Ball didn't specify why he believes winning a championship with the Lakers would be so important for LeBron's legacy, but he said adding James to a team that includes his sons Lonzo and LiAngelo would be an automatic recipe for a title.

So far, the Lakers have been committed to Walton as their coach and have not shown any signs of turning away from him anytime soon.
