LaVar Ball Torches Luke Walton, Lakers Amid Anthony Davis Trade Rumors

LaVar Ball Torches Luke Walton, Lakers Amid Anthony Davis Trade Rumors

The latest reports of the talks between the Lakers and Pelicans on Tuesday were that Los Angeles was unwilling to continue sending trade offers to New Orleans, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"I wish Lonzo would be the guy that was assertive and wasn't content to dribble the ball at half-court, hand it off to somebody and go hide in the corner".

Of course, the Lakers and Pelicans could always get the Suns involved in a possible three-way trade, but again, that would essentially be letting LaVar dictate things, and who is to say that Phoenix even wants the potential headache that comes with Ball anyway? "'Cause that's when he's very successful", LaVar said.

LaVar then made a weird threat to the Lakers. If his attempts qualified him for the league leaders, he'd be worse than Pistons big man Andre Drummond from the line (54.3 percent). Being undefeated, Gelo and Melo winning 60 games in a row, my boys don't lose too much.

With trade rumors swirling about Davis coming to Los Angeles to join the Lakers and Lonzo Ball being included in numerous rumored packages, we could soon see LaVar Ball and the Lakers separate, a move that seems to be in the best interests of both parties. In the latest offer, Ball was included along with almost half of the Lakers' roster and draft picks.

Nintendo reportedly working on a more compact Switch
Looking to the quality of Nintendo's past mobile efforts, this will likely be good news for players in the end. Nintendo could release a new smaller version of the Nintendo Switch to give the console another big push.

"The Lakers gave my boy that losing attitude", he added.

The Lakers are keen to recruit New Orleans Pelicans superstar Davis and offered Lonzo as part of a major package alongside Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Ivica Zubac, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, two future first-round draft picks and salary-cap relief by taking Solomon Hill to L.A.

Putting LaVar Ball aside, it does seem that the Suns could be a third team in the deal, as The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported.

Lonzo Ball's time in Los Angeles appears to be coming to an end. And with LaVar now in the mix, anything can happen.

"[Lonzo] is a better fit in Phoenix because they've got some young athletes". But I need all three of my boys on the court 'cause that's 60 percent of the team that's in to winning and not anxious about how much money they're going to make.
