The Lakers now have a 'LaVar Ball Rule'

The Lakers now have a 'LaVar Ball Rule'

LaVar Ball is also not allowed to do postgame on-court interviews. The media are not supposed to interview friends or family members of National Basketball Association players after games.

It's being dubbed as the "LaVar Ball Rule" so you can probably guess what's going on here.

"It's not a new policy; it's an existing policy. If a media member is recognized in that area now, arena security or Laker staffers direct that he or she leave the area". The media normally also has access to that section, but this rule is meant to keep the media and family separate.

Looking for that unique holiday gift to give this year, if even to yourself? Previously, reporters conducted interviews with family, friends and agents in that area.

Ball, no stranger to controversy, has recently issued several comments that may have played into this Lakers' decision to enforce what Staples Center employees are reportedly calling the "LaVar Ball Rule".

Ball has been widely critical of Lakers coach Luke Walton for not being tougher on his son.

Before the NBA Draft, many observers expected Ball's public armchair coaching and penchant for speaking out in the media would pose challenges for whichever team selected Lonzo.

Last night was a very rough Sunday night for Los Angeles Lakers rising star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, and the critics rightfully jumped all over his lackluster performance against the Houston Rockets. The reason for that increased media presence in the section behind the basket between the visiting team's bench and locker room is obvious, though: That's where reporters hope to get LaVar's immediate reaction following games. I tell him to go get the victory.

Broadcom and Qualcomm; GNC — CORPORATE REPORT
Broadcom is turning to Qualcomm shareholders to make an acquisition happen, following an unsuccessful takeover talk in November. The deal is potentially worth up to $130 billion if Qualcomm's debt is taken into consideration.

It's actually kind of surprising because LaVar Ball hasn't actually said that much this season.

"Yeah I got words for Byron Scott: Shut the hell up and do what you do!" Lonzo had a wide-open layup. It wouldn't have gone to overtime. The coach wouldn't have called timeout. You make two 3-pointers on me, I got two more to come.

LaVar Ball has his own reality show called "Ball In The Family" which airs on Facebook. LaVar, an outspoken business man and media personality, has at times been vocal in his criticism of the Lakers' coaching.
