Everyone can hate it all they want but LaVar Ball has proven himself to be newsworthy - if he weren't, Carlisle wouldn't be bothering to talk about him.
While everything seems to be falling apart for the young team led by a young coach, the team will not even consider showing Walton the door.
"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", Ball said.
Luke Walton has been feeling the heat recently, but thankfully for us, he's coping with a terrific sense of humor.
For the most part, Lonzo offered some boring cliches and platitudes about how his dad is going to speak his mind and it doesn't really affect anything in regards to the team (which absolutely can not be true).

Rahul Gandhi names new Meghalaya Congress president
With the resignation of its six MLAs in quick succession, Congress tally is down to 24 from 30 in the 60-member state Assembly. Only recently, a former NPP MLA from Baghmara, Satto R Marak, resigned after being denied the party ticket and joined BJP.
Longtime ESPN college basketball announcer Dick Vitale wrote on Twitter that Ball totally aggravates me more than any other personality in my 39 yrs and lamented that media outlets "enable him to scream his absurd opinions by providing a forum for him".
Lonzo: I'll play for anybody.
Ball - who has been the engine behind the Lakers' league-leading pace - was at the heart of this with his across-the-floor playmaking and 3-point shooting.
Ball continued with his analysis that Walton isn't the right guy for the job. He responded by saying he did it because LaVar "was taking sh*t". Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball]. You can't get more championships.
"As president of the coaches association, I view the recent ESPN article as a disgrace, quite honestly", Carlisle said before Sunday's game against the New York Knicks.
