Knicks notebook: Rick Carlisle rips ESPN, Lavar Ball

The Big Baller Brand founder has been outspoken about his opposition toward Lakers coach Luke Walton, and in his latest verbal outpouring, the Ball patriarch claimed Walton has lost the locker room. "They don't want to play for him", Ball told ESPN on Sunday. Rick Carlisle, Luke Walton, and all of the coaches, owners, and players are a lot wealthier because of ESPN's distribution costs.

"As president of the Coaches Association, I view the recent ESPN article as a disgrace quite honestly", Carlisle told reporters. "Luke Walton is a terrific young coach who is bringing along a young team". If you don't believe it, just ask me. We went through it previous year.

It would be interesting to find out who LaVar Ball thinks should coach the Lakers, but he'd more than likely say himself. LaVar Ball has consistently violated his pre-draft vow to Magic Johnson that he would not meddle with the team if they picked Lonzo, and that he was playing a character he could flip on and off like a light switch. "Luke doesn't have control of the team no more". Nobody wants to play for him. "My only concern with any of it is for Zo", Walton said, brushing off the comments.

He went on to suggest ESPN, as a television partner of the National Basketball Association, had violated the trust of National Basketball Association coaches. "Two years ago he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an wonderful accomplishment".

Carlisle is doing his job in advocating for his professional brethren here, but this isn't an ESPN problem, it's a Lakers problem. "To have to deal with these kinds of ignorant distractions is deplorable".

"You have my quote, " Carlisle retorted.

The previous coach Jack Del Rio was sacked after the last game of the season, and Gruden is set to interview with them Monday. Owner Mark Davis hopes that will all change now that he has finally lured Gruden back for a second stint as the team's coach.

"I'm saying that they should look at their sources and do a better job of determining whether they have any merit or any validity". That's what I'm saying.

President Donald Trump asked the Chinese government to release Ball and two other UCLA players who were being detained. "So when they have comments on teams, chemistry, that kind of stuff, they don't really know what's going on in the overall picture", Hornacek said. People don't know why they're in the game. Nevertheless, LaVar is making these remarks all the way from Lithuania while everyone back in Los Angeles has to answer for them.
