Rumble / Entertainment LifeLaVar Ball claims that the Lakers aren’t playing for their coach, Luke Walton, anymore. After losing 12 of their last 13 games he said: “Luke doesn’t have control of the team no more. They don’t want to play for him.” Last night, after the Lakers win against Atlanta, Walton was asked by a reporter why he took Lonzo out of the first quarter early. He jokingly responded: “His dad was talking shit so I took him out early.”
