Steve Kerr: LaVar Ball 'Kardashian of the NBA'

Steve Kerr: LaVar Ball 'Kardashian of the NBA'

Much of the team's struggles can be contributed to the young roster.

Kerr was one of many who took overt offense for ESPN giving LaVar Ball a platform.

"Somewhere LaVar is laughing at all of us". It's true in politics, entertainment and now sports. It doesn't matter if there's any substance involved with an issue, it's just can we make it really interesting for no apparent reason?

"I thought it was a cheap shot and I thought ESPN showed total disrespect", Van Gundy said, per The Detroit Free-Press' Vince Ellis. "I would go close to nearly threatening, 'If you keep opening your mouth ... we are going to trade your son from the Lakers'".

The rookie's primary counterpart on an up-and-down night was fellow first-year player De'Aaron Fox, who emerged as one of Ball's chief foils during their brief collegiate tenures. "Don't try and monitor no minutes, put on restrictions".

"There's nothing interesting about that story [LaVar's comments about Walton]". "Yet, we're sticking a microphone in front of his face because apparently it gets ratings. We know it. I just hope we handle it better". It's been going on for man, many years. People like Ethan Strauss and Marc Stein are getting laid off.

"He impacted it on both ends, ' Walton said".

"In the National Basketball Association, there is always a 'win-win, ' somewhere, " Carlisle told me. The guys who coach high schools are the ones that have to deal with the parents. So, I talked to people in the media this year.

"I'm saying that they should look at their sources and do a better job of determining whether they have any merit or any validity".

The Lakers repeatedly stick to the same line they've trotted out for months when it comes to the public utterances of America's most boisterous sports parent: It isn't worth a response, because he's simply a family member of one of the team's players.

Magic Johnson watched Lakers practice from the landing outside of his office, but was not made available to reporters. And then, when Ball inevitably attacks Walton again, the Lakers could simply remind everyone they'd already said all they needed to. The surrender in his voice, along with the tepid support he voiced for Walton, inevitably leaves the impression that he feels the same way as LaVar Ball - or, worse, that he fed him those opinions.

LaVar Ball is no Kardashian.

Walton's team is finally starting to get healthier. "He's doing all he can".

Ker wondered, however, why it is part of the media's gig.

The circus that surrounds LaVar Ball has moved past Westwood and into, of all places, Lithuania, where Ball organized a plan for his two youngest sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, to play hoops professionally oversees.

The reason we care about what people like Kerr say is because of the position they hold and the credibility they've gained through the experience in their careers.
