LaVar stayed as silent as he could, but then he made a decision to renew his one-sided rivalry with the Lakers head coach while in Lithuania. "We talk all the time". "He has coached me his whole life". Walton said Friday that he didn't think his job was in jeopardy.
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. "That's just what it is."?
With a current record of 11-27, the Lakers are dead last in the NBA's Western Conference standings. They held a team meeting on December 28 to air out myriad issues, from players who were unhappy about roles, minutes and rotations, to the direction the team is taking with its focus on signing two star free agents next summer. I can see it. The press is going to make it out like I'm trying to demean them or they're trying to demean me.
Walton said Sunday that he was "fine" with LaVar's comments, on one condition.
"My only concern with any of it is for Zo [Lonzo]". "I'm fine with it", he said, per Ganguli.

"Lonzo looked good, but he also looked disgusted", LaVar said. LaVar wasn't done with Walton, though. "I've said all along there's always parents, and parents are going to get mad at things, that's what they do".
Kuzma, who has been arguably the team's best player this season, has been struggling as of late and is coming off one of his worst performances of the season against the lowly Charlotte Hornets.
Asked if he disagrees with the idea that he's lost the locker room, Walton responded, "I would disagree with that, yes".
Pelinka and Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson met with LaVar Ball on November 29, not long after he told a reporter the Lakers coaches were too soft on his son. I know our front office and organization, they'll do whatever they have to do on their end of it, but I'm not spending my time trying to figure out what they're all doing about it. "Gr8 teacher & role model / if u don't like a situation just QUIT take ball & blame everyone / @ LukeWalton has more CLASS & HOOPS knowledge on his pinkie than LaVar!"
