SNYDER: Magic, Lakers? Just guests on LaVar Ball's reality show
12 January, 2018, 18:56 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
Ball recently started another media firestorm by suggesting that Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton had lost the team and players "don't want to play for him", while the team was in the midst of a losing streak.
I don't think it would go over well with LeBron's camp, who like to control everything.
That's ridiculous on a lot of levels, not the least of which is that Goodman didn't endorse LaVar Ball's opinions, he simply reported them.
With the Lakers constantly drawing attention and making headlines for all the right and wrong reasons, the 22-year-old forward out of MI also gave his unique view on the state of sports news coverage as a whole and the environment a rookie enters in the modern National Basketball Association.
Still, Walton was left perturbed by mistakes that cost the Lakers' their early lead. When asked about it, Lonzo just weakly said, "I'll play for anybody", hardly the full-throated defense other Lakers had of Walton.
And it deserves an entirely different response. Monday, Johnson observed practice at the team's facility. He, too, declined to speak. I said, 'Why do you guys have to cover that guy?' And they say, 'Well, we don't want to, but our bosses tell us we have to because of the ratings, because of the readership.' Somewhere, I guess in Lithuania, LaVar Ball is laughing. Do you know how many parents of my players have probably been at home like, 'Man, he should be playing my kid?' And yet, we're sticking a microphone in his face because, apparently, it gets ratings.

The technology company reported $0.76 earnings per share for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.73 by $0.03. SS&C Technologies Holdings has an analyst consensus of Strong Buy, with a price target consensus of $47.40.
That's it. There didn't have to be a sermon over Ball's latest incendiary comments, or his parenting style, or whether he should be barred from the Staples Center.
Still, the Lakers are expected to clear as much salary cap space as possible for the 2018 offseason, so they may have to consider trading Nance.
Coverage of Lavar Ball's criticism over the weekend of Luke Walton has perturbed coaches from all over The Association.
"I'm saying that they should look at their sources and do a better job of determining whether they have any merit or any validity, or are they just blowhard loudmouths", Carlisle said.
The issue is that LaVar Ball is nothing like a Kardashian.
Lonzo Ball is the first Lakers player with a double-double that did not include points since Lamar Odom in 2008. The stories that get read and segments that attract eyeballs don't always contain the most news value.
