LaVar Ball Thinks He Should Coach Lonzo Ball's Lakers

BTW, Scott's hosting a live music event in Hollywood Friday night. that LaVar Ball will probably not be attending.

However, as we all have had beaten into our heads by now, that's not how LaVar Ball rolls.

Much of the conversation surrounding Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball has been focused on his passing ability and his struggles shooting from the perimeter. The Lakers are 7-10 in a hard Western Conference, but LaVar Ball doesn't seem to think that's good enough and shuns Walton's more passive approach to coaching.

"They're soft", he said. "When they're at this stage of their careers, [sometimes] you have to point out that that's not how you do different things".

"They're soft. They don't know how to coach my son", Ball said of the Lakers, per Bleacher Report's Eric Pincus. Ball went 2-of-8 from behind the arc for the game, and said afterward that draining two threes was "a start". "I think we play better when we play against each other, when we trash talk, get into it, go at each other".

More on this genius strategy: "What I mean by babying [Lonzo], 'He'll figure it out.' It ain't about that. 'Be patient with him?' Ain't no patience if you're winning". But he says that his problem isn't with Walton himself.


"No, I have a problem with losing", Ball responded.

"They're letting it go too easy, saying they're a young team", he continued. Say, 'You guys need to win.

"When you're [playing] at home you don't lose".

Ball also said that there aren't excuses for the way that the Lakers are playing.

ABOUT THE KINGS (4-13): Sacramento has dropped five of its past six games but Fox has been one of the team's bright spots with averages of 11 points and a team-best 4.7 assists.
