LaVar Ball Says Lakers Coach Luke Walton Does Not Know How To Coach Lonzo Ball

Parents involved in the inner workings of a team usually only happens at the high school level. Not anymore, however, as LaVar Ball is now saying that Lakers head coach Luke Walton does not know how to coach his son, Lonzo Ball.

“They’re soft. They don’t know how to coach my son,” Ball said of the Lakers, per Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus. “I know how to coach him. I tell him to go get the victory. Stop messing around.”

Thus far, Lonzo has had a pretty successful season. While he has had trouble getting his jumper going, he has strung together two triple-doubles while averaging 8.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game.

“Go get the W. Do whatever it takes. That’s why I’m down here saying, ‘Rebound,'” LaVar Ball said. “He’s been away from me too long. I see tendencies in his game — they’re trying to baby him a little bit. … What I mean by babying, ‘He’ll figure it out.’ It ain’t about that. ‘Be patient with him?’ Ain’t no patience if you’re winning.”

Walton, on the other hand, does not agree with LaVar’s philosophy.

“As you’re building, you’re on that path. It’s never [smooth],” he said. “It’s never just you get it and all of a sudden you don’t have slippage anymore. Every team goes through it. The important thing for us is that we learn from our mistakes, we keep our head up, we keep working and grinding away to get where we all want to be.”

This is just another one of LaVar antics that the press is becoming a conduit to. Don’t read into it too much.
