Luke Walton Jokes He Subbed Lonzo Early Because Of LaVar's Trash Talk

The Lakers find themselves in the midst of a nine-game losing streak and frustrations have been boiling over repeatedly this season.

Whoa, grab a tissue and dial back the passion, Lonzo! The Lakers generated 42 points off of fast breaks, Joey Ramirez noted.

Lavar Ball also said he is confident that LeBron James, whom he has never met, will be coming to the Lakers this offseason as a free agent. The Lakers are, statistically and intangibly, a better team with Ball in the lineup.

Syria's death toll in Idlib auto bomb rises to at least 25
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the blast struck the headquarters of a minor rebel faction. Activists say another 15 people were killed in Syrian government and Russian air strikes elsewhere on Sunday.

Yet while Ball's fancy playmaking opened the most eyes, Josh Hart was just as valuable by starting and finishing multiple breaks.

LeBron James is a three-time NBA champion, four-time league MVP and three-time NBA Finals MVP, but LaVar Ball thinks there is only one way the King can overtake Michael Jordan as the best player in league history-join his son in Los Angeles and win a title. "It benefits my game perfectly". "I'll play for anybody", Ball answered, according to the Los Angeles Times.

During his post-game press conference, Walton was asked about his decision to sub Lonzo out of the game during the first quater. "His dad was talking s*** so I took him out early", he told Bill Oram of SoCal News Group. Of course, Walton was joking and after a brief pause clarified, "Just kidding". Walton said the comments didn't concern him, as long as they didn't adversely affect his player.

The project, unveiled at the CES gadget show Monday in Las Vegas, involves such companies as Amazon , Uber and Pizza Hut . The partnership will use Toyota's Mobility Services Platform , which allows for management of various connected vehicles.

"You can see they're not playing for Luke no more", Ball said from a spa resort in Birstonas, where he is staying while his two youngest sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, get ready to make their professional debuts with Lithuanian team Prienu Vytautas. "I can see it", LaVar added. No high five's when they come out of the game. "He's too young. He has no control".

After the game, Walton had some fun with LaVar's criticism. As LaVar fulminates in eastern Europe, it does seem like Walton is winning the unusual phony war.
