What will Lakers do if LaVar goes off on Walton?

What will Lakers do if LaVar goes off on Walton?

Its mid-November and the Lakers have hit a tough stretch. The losses are piling up. Lonzo Ball is struggling to make shots, cant keep up on the defensive end against quicker point guards and his bid for Rookie of the Year is going up in flames.

Uh-oh. Here comes LaVar Ball, and this time hes not selling Big Baller shoes. Hes going after Luke Walton, generating a firestorm on social media and sending Laker-land into a frenzy.

What, that cant happen? Of course it can, and with LaVars grandiose expectations (he guaranteed the Lakers will make the playoffs this season), it would be kind of shocking if he didnt have at least one run-in with his sons new coach.

As weve seen, when it comes to his three basketball-playing sons, LaVar operates by one rule: Father knows best. He never went after Lonzos coach at UCLA, Steve Alford, but hes gone after his kids high school coach. Walton, entering his second season as an NBA head coach, is seen as fair game.

In fact, theres a prop bet in Las Vegas on how many games it will take LaVar to publicly criticize his sons head coach. The number is set at 15 1/2, which is seen as high by some coaches who have heard LaVar over the past year take on Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, female sportscasters and a host of others. (In case you were wondering, Game 15 is a Nov. 15 home game against the Sixers, after Lonzo and the Lakers return from a four-game trip to Boston, Washington, Milwaukee and Phoenix.)
