Steve Kerr Takes on the 'Kardashian of the NBA' in Epic Rant About Society

Ball, the outspoken father of Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, told ESPN's Jeff Goodman that Walton has lost control of the team and players "don't want to play for him". "People are eating out of his hands for no apparent reasons other than he has become the Kardashian in the NBA", Kerr said prior to the Warriors" game on Monday against the Denver Nuggets. It's just 'Can we make it really interesting.' For no apparent reason. "It's a little different, but you just have to try to block it out as much as you can".

But sorry LaVar, no one's drawing up their contracts to join Lonzo Ball on the Los Angeles Lakers quite yet. I don't know who cares, but people must care or ESPN wouldn't be spending whatever they're spending.

The Lakers have won two in a row since the nine-game skid, including Tuesday's victory against Sacramento when Lonzo demonstrated his ability to dominate without scoring.

It's time for Ball to tell his spotlight-craving father - the person who helped propel his career in the first place - to stop talking.

"That is just his opinion", Ball said of LaVar's remarks Sunday, via the OC Register's Bill Oram."(LaVar) has coached me his whole life.

Iowa's Gustafson named to Wooden Award Top 25
But it's been more than a decade since a Blue Devils player won the John Wooden Award - the last one being J.J. OR sophomore point guard Sabrina Ionescu is one of 25 players who remain in contention for the John R.

There may be those who point to De'Aaron Fox's 15 points as proof of his superiority over his supposed rookie rival, as was the case in some corners when the No. 5 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft outscored the No. 2 selection during the previous meeting between these teams.

"I've talked to people in the media and said 'Why do you guys have to cover that guy, '" said Kerr.

"I thought we gave an effort tonight that was awesome but we have got to get better at the mental part of the game", Walton said.

Note: As I began to type this up, I saw the irony of writing a story about LaVar Ball and how he doesn't need any attention. "That's my guy. He's one of my best friends".

How can the Lakers do that, only to then not say anything publicly to support their coach when Ball chooses to attack him again? "I don't know how he caught it but it went in".

OnePlus 5T is now available in Lava Red (but only in India)
The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back and it supports Bluetooth 5.0 and uses USB type-C for charging and data syncing. With the arrival of the OnePlus 5T Lava Red, the device is now available in Midnight Black and Star Wars Limited Edition .

Walton had to juggle lineups and rotations with injuries to starters such as Ball, Brook Lopez and Ingram while also having to deal with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope not being allowed to play out of California due to legal restrictions stemming from a plea agreement out of his March arrest under suspicion of drunk driving. I'm not kicking them out of press conferences. Ball's credibility only lies in having a son, an National Basketball Association player who could develop into a star, opinions that are objectively nonsensical and an off-the-wall apparel company self driven nearly exclusively by free-press marketing.

Kerr said he was not condemning ESPN, which laid off several reporters a year ago, but was speaking to a larger societal issue.

"This is not a ESPN judgment". So this is not an ESPN judgement, it's a societal thing more than anything.

"Where we are going, is we are going away from covering the game and getting closer to just sensationalized news", Kerr said.

"It's not even news really, it's complete nonsense, but if you package that irrational nonsense with some glitter and some ribbon people are going to watch".
