Walton held it for a minute before saying, "I'm just kidding".
A source close to Lonzo Ball said he's more concerned with establishing himself in the league and helping the team get out of its recent struggles than wading into a controversy between his dad and the coach. If coaches want to penalize the broadcasts over what appears on the website, they're only hurting the sport. Carlisle was asked about Ball's comments, and he went off and called on coaches to blacklist any reporter who interviews Ball. "Like I said, he is going to say what he wants to say". "I can't [do] nothing about it".
"Off of that, he earned the Laker job", Carlisle said.

Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle sounded off on an ESPN report Sunday that sourced Lakers' forward Lorenzo Ball's father, Lavar Ball, as stating that Los Angeles coach Luke Walton had "lost the team".
Luke Walton still has his sense of humor. So the question is not whether Walton has "lost" the team, but whether any coach could ever "have" the team to begin with. "We can't control what's on the outside or who is talking on the outside. They're 100% behind and supporting what we're doing".
Zidane insists he doesn't want signings despite Madrid 'crisis'

While top Lakers officials insist privately that Walton is not at risk of being fired, neither Pelinka nor Johnson, who was in Lansing, Mich., for his parents 60th anniversary, offered a public rebuke. First, he said that ESPN, as a broadcaster of National Basketball Association games, is given special access to coaches for pregame and in-game interviews with coaches, and added, "In exchange for that, they should back up the coaches".
As other teams seek to limit damage that LaVar Ball can inflict on them, the Lakers are left scrambling trying to clean up his mess.
The Lakers picked up a 132-113 win over the Hawks Sunday, but the season has mostly been disappointing so far.

ESPN followed the most polarizing father in sports 6,000 miles to see the scene that LaVar sons LiAngelo and LaMelo will take in as they turn professional. "I think today we had a little bit more energy, a little more rhythm to our game, and it looked to like we were confident in everything we did".
