This ferocious Lonzo Ball dunk is his best National Basketball Association highlight so far

"I'll play for anybody", Ball said. "But part of that partnership is that the coaches do a lot of things to help them with access, interviews. And our coaches are upset because Luke Walton does not deserve that".

Ball, who is in Lithuania with his younger sons, told ESPN.com: "You can see they're not playing for Luke no more". And in exchange for that they should back up the coaches. "They don't want to play for him". Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion that is printed as anything like legitimate erodes trust.

Walton, who had spoken prior to Ball, contended that the comments from the parent did not bother him, though he did say the noise coming from Ball's father was "Not ideal". LaVar being the father of the team's top draft pick makes things a bit different, but he has no control over how the team plays or what moves they make.

"I don't think so", Ball responded following Sunday morning shootaround when asked point blank if he thought Walton had lost the locker room.

Titans Could Pursue Josh McDaniels If They Lose To Chiefs
Mariota finished with more than 200 passing yards and had two touchdowns in Tennessee's 22-21 win over Kansas City . The ball squirted free, and it looked like Zombo's ensuing 58-yard return would give the Chiefs the lead again.

Raiders to name Gruden coach on Tuesday
Gruden is said to have agreed to a 10-year deal worth more than $100 million with the team he coached from 1998-2001. Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs.

Trump slams Federal Bureau of Investigation and Clinton for dossier claims
BuzzFeed News published the controversial dossier in January, which includes many salacious claims that have not been verified. The dossier was a collection of unverified claims about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

Ball was asked directly if he likes Walton as his head coach. Two years ago, he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an fantastic accomplishment. People don't know why they're in the game.

Carlisle is doing his job in advocating for his professional brethren here, but this isn't an ESPN problem, it's a Lakers problem.

"I feel very secure in my job status right now", Walton said. "To have to deal to deal with these kind of ignorant distractions is deplorable".

Ball apparently based his opinion on the oft-used sports cliché of "body language", after seeing how his son Lonzo Ball and other Lakers players responded on the court during a recent loss. "So when they have comments on teams, chemistry, that kind of stuff". The press is going to make it out like I'm trying to demean them or they're trying to demean me. The Lakers still have not recovered from that brutal stretch, as the team has lost 11 of its last 12 games and has fallen from being an outside contender for the playoffs to the worst record in the Western Conference.
