LaVar Ball may have spoken Luke Walton's hot seat into existence

Lonzo Ball and Dennis Smith Jr. meet again as Mavericks host Lakers

Nearly 6,000 miles away from the Los Angeles Lakers' home, LaVar Ball riled up coaches, former players, an analysts when he all but called for the job of head coach Luke Walton. "We give him the ball and get out of the way and we know that it is going to be a bucket". And coaches from Rick Carlisle to Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich all came to Walton's defense.

Nance finished the night with 14 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 30 active minutes.

Moreover, the Lakers would win their third straight. He responded with a calculated takedown of LaVar in which he referred to the Ball family patriarch as "just another fan in the peanut gallery" and said his opinion is "meaningless".

San Antonio Spurs' Davis Bertans saves the ball during the first half of the team's NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, in Los Angeles. Kawhi Leonard (left shoulder strain), Danny Green (tightness, left groin), Tony Parker (sprained right ankle) and Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) all won't play.

San Antonio recovered from an 11-point halftime lead to take a 53-52 lead on a 3-pointer by Forbes with 6:42 left in the third quarter. "We didn't play smart, and we let them, at times, out-hustle us and play more physical than us". Their desire was at a totally different level than ours was.

Spurs: Pau Gasol had nine points and 12 rebounds in the 37-year-old Spaniard's latest return to the city where he won two championships alongside Kobe Bryant, whose two retired jersey numbers now hang in the Staples Center rafters.

"If LeBron is strongly considering the Lakers, they have to understand LaVar would be a deterrent", Broussard said, as transcribed by The Big Lead. Now they are just three games back of the Utah Jazz, who are 10th out west.

"Whenever anyone says anything about another individual or the quality of another individual or what they are doing, the first thing to look at is the substance and gravitas of the source", Popovich said.

"Um, yeah, his dad was talking s- so I took him out early", Walton deadpanned.

The trade proposal I am going to talk about has no rumblings outside of initial talks in mid-December before breaking down, but is the one that would actually work out for both sides. You get me a talent like Kevin Durant, and I'll drive you to the airport.

LA Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. was called the "Most Valuable Player" of the game by his coach after Thursday's win over the San Antonio Spurs, and Nance spoke about the game and his highlight dunk in the Lakers' locker room.
