LaVar Ball Criticizes Luke Walton And Coaching Staff For Not Being Tougher On Lakers Players ‘They’re Soft’
The LA Lakers have experienced some growing pains this season as they continue to try and breakthrough into a team that isn’t relegated to the NBA lottery.
Despite the team’s ups and downs, coach Luke Walton has remained patient with his young players.

Walton’s focus day to day must be on winning, but to do so, he needs to let his young players make mistakes while gaining the experience they need to succeed.
“The line is there and you walk that line every day because you need to encourage them to have the confidence in themselves,” Walton said. “When they’re at this stage of their careers, [sometimes] you have to point out that that’s not how you do different things.”
LaVar Ball, father of Lakers star point guard Lonzo Ball, believes Walton and the Lakers staff are going too easy on the young Lakers squad amid the team’s struggles this season.
