The Lakers are trying restrict media access to LaVar Ball after he criticized the team at its arena a couple times recently.

In a shocking turn of events, Lonzo Ball’s father found a microphone outside the arena.

SiriusXM NBA Radio:

The Lakers have struggled to start fourth quarters lately, but I doubt Ball – a rookie point guard with a “raggedy” shot – is the solution. He must rest at some point.

But at what point does Luke Walton tire of LaVar criticizing the coach’s rotation? At what point do Lonzo’s teammates tire of LaVar insinuating they can’t get the job done without Lonzo?

And at what point do they resent Lonzo for it?
