    Magic Johnson knows what he's doing, he's allowing LaVar Ball to run his mouth about Luke Walton while seeing if Luke Walton is the coach he wants to have there; either Luke improves or the team underachieves and he has to go. Also, concerning Lonzo Ball, either he improves or he has to go... the player (Ball) and coach (Walton) will earn their way in the Lakers' uniform through production, then Magic will make the right decision.

    Magic is using all of this for publicity and as we know some of us anyway " drama sells tickets" no doubt and my opinion about Lavar Ball he's a fan and all the vulgar things fans say to the players are historical meaning they are the worst profane in the history og b-ball but hey Lav ball is a fan and he surely won't SHUT-UP😱

    The media needs to take some responsibility. The ONLY reason Lavar is as relevant as he is is because of the MEDIA. If the keep the mike in his face he's gonna keeps saying whatever tf he wants. Can't nobody shit him up as long as they keep giving him the platform. Not even Magic Johnson lol. The media needs to take responsibility for the monster THEY created.

      Perry thats 1 way to look at it !!! How about , The Media wouldn't be as relevant , nor the Lakers (24th in league standing 16 - 29) Have as much coverage as a top 5 team ,
      if it wasn't for Lavar what would they have to talked about ? Markelle fultz , Kuzma passing the ball to himself or Jack Nicolsen's drunk ass.
      What could top the LAVAR show in sports Networks , And Majic Knows entertainment value.

    Bruh it’s because the media won’t stop gassing him up. At the end of the day he’s the father, he’s allowed to have an opinion. Everyone is giving him a platform to speak on which is why everyone is fed up with him. Lavar is not asking for these interviews and questions, you all are giving it to him. Instead of him shutting up, it seems like people want to hear the next thing this man says

  • LC Jones

    If you guys in the media are sick of Lavar STOP TALKING about him. It's that simple. Lavar does not work for the Lakers so who cares what he says. A fan can be critical. Heck most fans are critical. Who pays attention to critical fans. And how you don't know that Lonzo didn't speak to his dad. I heard Lonzo state that his father is going to speak his mind. A son cannot control his father. Duh! And you want Magic to speak publicly so you can continue discussing this stale news story. Nope wouldn't even buy into that. If Magic has an issue then he should speak with Lavar privately and keep it private. As long as Lonzo was not speaking negatively to the media I wouldn't care. Lavar is going to be Lavar. Move on to another story.

    Lavar and lonzo are the only interesting thing about the nba right now. Lets face it cavs and warriors are getting boring and people want to see young kobes and young iversons that simply dont exist. Or players with character like jordan. Not cry babies like james.

    Is this America or Russia, maybe it will be just like Russia when Trump is done with his four years. Hopefully not. That Dumb Lavar can say what ever the hell he want's I don't give a flying F@E#$ what he says. He aint the coach and he surely aint the owner. Stephen A Smith is wrong period. All Luke has to do is improve this team. and make sure Alonzo get's better.

    he doesnt deserve what reggie is talking about, but lonzo surely has a hand in this by not coming out in support of his coach and saying what his dad says isnt true.
    the more he doesnt, the more people will look at it like lonzo has been feeding his dad the info.

  • trajan hercules
    trajan hercules 3 months ago

    Its obvious Magic does not want Luke to be the coach. Magic did not hire Luke Walton and Luke is not a good coach anyway. These sports pundits always talking about Lavar Ball and not the lousy job that Luke Walton is doing. The pundits never look at the coaching of the Lakers but always talk about the players as if the players are coaching themselves. I think that LaVar Ball knows enough about basketball to see that the Laker coaching is weak. LaVar has 3 sons that are very talented at basketball. He has to know more about basketball coaching then Stephen A Smith who has no sons that are even close to playing any professional basketball. If im Magic Johnson im looking for a new coach for the Lakers(somebody like Mark Jackson) and i dont say nothing in response to Lavar Ball.

    I honestly can't with first take? Lavar is in Lithuania supporting his kids and he still can't get his dick back from ESPN. They attacking Lonzo (whose been playing well lately) for no reason and tryna shove words in magics mouth. I'm think the reason he's been quiet cause he is smart enough to see the media is trying to feed off a black man trying to built his own empire with his family.
