Rick Carlisle's rant about ESPN's LaVar Ball coverage is completely misguided

09 Enero, 2018, 01:22 | Author: Misty Newman

The Big Baller Brand founder has been outspoken about his opposition toward Lakers coach Luke Walton, and in his latest verbal outpouring, the Ball patriarch claimed Walton has lost the locker room.

Lamenting the Lakers' recent struggles, which have seen them lose nine straight games and fall into last place in the conference, LaVar said Walton doesn't have control of the team anymore, and added that the players don't want to play for him.

HIs response was not exactly a ringing endorsement.

"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", Ball said. "People don't know why they're in the game", the bombastic father continued.

Ball, who was up at 5 a.m. local time Saturday to watch his son Lonzo Ball in his first game back with the Lakers since suffering a sprained shoulder on December 23, expressed his frustration with Walton in an exclusive interview with ESPN.

Despite the fact that he said he didn't have a problem with his coaching earlier this season, he clearly does. And while Carlisle may view the network as a "partner" with the National Basketball Association, the fact of the matter is ESPN pays billions per year to broadcast the league. "Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion - that is printed as anything like legitimate - erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN".

"Y do we chase LaVar Ball?". It erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN, and our coaches are upset because Luke Walton does not deserve that.

"I feel very secure in my job status right now", Walton said.

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.

The comments from Ball were inflammatory towards Walton. "I don't decide who coaches". 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. Everyone can hate it all they want but LaVar Ball has proven himself to be newsworthy - if he weren't, Carlisle wouldn't be bothering to talk about him. Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball]. You can't get more championships. And it's a win. "I know he's coming to LA", LaVar said. "Yeah, there probably shouldn't be many comments from outside".
