The Lakers Just Won Their 3rd Straight

The Lakers Just Won Their 3rd Straight

Earlier in the campaign, president of the Lakers operations, Magic Johnson, called for a "shot doctor" to work with the team's shooting woes.

Dallas native Julius Randle had 23 points and 15 rebounds to help the Los Angeles Lakers seal a 107-101 National Basketball Association overtime win over the Mavericks.

"I got executives in my ear, I got agents in my ear, saying, 'Oh yeah, they're probably going to hire David Fizdale'".

The Lakers, who know something about stars, had Kobe Bryant, the brashest of the brash, who asked Coach Del Harris as an 18-year-old rookie why they couldn't run post-ups for him, leaving Delmer to explain they had Shaquille O'Neal for that.

Interestingly, the Lakers' front office has yet to issue a statement of support for Walton. "There is no doubt that they support me".

"With Kobe [Bryant] gone and the young core players that we have, and I think players understand and see what Lonzo Ball brings to the table as a point guard, I really think we are in a good place and I think [Johnson] will be able to deliver next year".

Meanwhile, this rumor is the latest in a long line of reports about the future of the team, its roster, and its coaches, something that many members of the organization have admitted is lingering over them as the season continues. "Barbecue! @Lakers #InLukeWeTrust", Buss tweeted.

"Luke doesn't have control of the team no more", Ball told ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman.

"Brook (Lopez) did a great job starting off with upside defense, [and] blocked shots", said forward Larry Nance Jr. But after multiple meetings and pleas not to publicly disparage their team and coach, the situation remains unchanged. Carlisle said such comments shouldn't be published if they have no merit or validity.

In an interview with ESPN, Ball, the father of Lakers rookie guard Lonzo, said the Lakers don't want to play for Walton anymore.

There's no getting away from LaVar Ball even when he's half a world away, continuing his outrages from Lakerdom to Lithuania. Golden State coach Steve Kerr, coach Stan Van Gundy and coach Gregg Popovich also expressed their support for Walton and their disdain for Ball being given a platform to speak his mind. That would be the team's ninth straight loss, with the injury pile-up and an unholy schedule to end 2017 playing their parts in the losing streak. In any case, Walton already tried the alternative approach for 33 games, and the Lakers lost 22 of those games. "Just reading the defence, trying to be better off of instincts".
