Lakers concerned about toll on Lonzo due to LaVar's antics

13 January 2018

"We're going to trade your son from the Lakers, '" Miller said of what he'd do if he were Johnson. "That sells. That's what is true in politics, entertainment and now in sports".

Tyler Ennis #10 of the Los Angeles Lakers handles the ball against the Oklahoma City Thunder on January 3, 2018 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.

LaVar Ball also said of the 39-year-old Walton in the ESPN article: "Even if you bring in a LeBron (James) or a (Paul) George (as free agents in the offseason), what's he gonna tell them?"

The pair combined for 29 points in a 90-80 victory on Tuesday, but not without showing how far they have to go if they really want to reach the National Basketball Association.

California mudslides sweep away auto in shocking video caught by firefighters
Both cars appeared severely damaged. "Rocks flowing, mud flowing ...everywhere, barely made it out". The video was shared by Burbank Firefighters on Instagram and it is scary AF.

"That is just his opinion", Ball said of LaVar's remarks Sunday, via the OC Register's Bill Oram."(LaVar) has coached me his whole life. Luke doesn't have control of the team no more.

But if Ball ever wants this circus his dad has created to leave town, he will have to persuade him to step back. The Warriors' head coach has not needed to weigh in much on the father of the Lakers' rookie point guard, Lonzo Ball. I think it's coming down to Lonzo versus Luke Walton.

There's an argument to be made that The Athletic, in this push, is using Ball to boost the bottom line, the very practice they claim to be running from.

The reality, of course, is that Carlisle and the NBCA have no grounds to demand anything from the news media - even from one of the league's network partners. "I was thinking about ESPN, and they laid off, I don't know, 100 people". There are people all of the time that strongly disagree with how a team is run or who they hire or have in top positions - but with LaVar Ball, the concern is that his antics will seep into the locker room. "We know that. I just hope we handle it better". And what happened in the Summer League as you always point out, a lot of people are playing out there who aren't even going to play in the National Basketball Association. "Or ESPN wouldn't be spending whatever they're spending to send reporters to Lithuania when they're laying off people who are writing really substantial pieces". This is not a condemnation of ESPN.

Parents sue for girl, 11, to use medical marijuana at school
The Surin's said Ashley has improved dramatically since she has been getting the medical marijuana treatments. Cannabis oil drops help her get through the school day, according to the lawsuit obtained by USA Today .

"For one, the Lakers' record has been bad, and while James would make it a lot better, there is reason to doubt that even he and a super friend like George could fix all of the Lakers' problems", Faigen wrote Tuesday. It's (as Steve Kerr so bluntly put it) a societal issue. The guys who coach high schools are the ones that have to deal with the parents.

But I'm going to remind you, a bunch of kids were playing out there who are really, really good.

Kerr was more diplomatic, characteristically, lamenting the Ball phenomenon as part of a larger trend in media coverage.
