He also pulled LaMelo out of Chino Hills partially because LaVar asked new coach Dennis Latimore to add four new players to their roster to play with his son and Latimore refused to do so. "I don't decide who coaches".
"We let the fact that we missed shots early in the game impact our energy", coach Luke Walton said.
"Yeah. We're, I feel, very secure in my job status right now", Walton said.
"It doesn't influence what we're doing", Walton said.
The Los Angeles Lakers are playing "like garbage" these days, and famous TV sports dad LaVar Ball thinks he knows why. Those comments put Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball in the hard position of both defending his father and his head coach.

With a current record of 11-27, the Lakers are dead last in the NBA's Western Conference standings. He might still see some time in the rotation, but it would be in limited minutes.
Ball said you can see Walton "doesn't have control of the team" and he is no longer connecting with the players, citing the way players react to substitutions as proof of this.
For his part, Walton said he was more concerned with his point guard's development than dealing with criticism from the outspoken LaVar.
