Lavar Ball: Lakers' 'Luke Walton Was the Worst Coach Ever for Lonzo'

LaVar Ball says he isn't afraid of Jesus or LeBron James.

LaVar Ball resurfaced with his hot takes Monday after months of radio silence. 

He came back swinging with the trade deadline looming and decided to weigh in on the Anthony Davis rumors since some have involved his son, Lakers guard Lonzo Ball. LaVar Ball said he wants his son in Phoenix if there is a trade.

Well his bloviating continued on Tuesday by chiming in on the Lakers head coach and the future of his three sons. 

"If you look at my boys, the one thing they do do is win," he said on Doug & Wolf on Phoenix radio station 98.7 FM on Tuesday. "Being undefeated, [LiAngelo] and [LaMelo] winning 60 games in a row, my boys don’t lose too much. When they got to the Lakers, Luke Walton was the worst coach ever for Lonzo 'cause he had a losing mentality. He’s been losing for three years."

He also wants the whole Ball squad with the Suns and firmly believes that they can change the culture. 

NADKARNIRanking Potential Trade Offers from Anthony Davis’ Wish-List Teams

Before this most recent comment storm, the last time LaVar really stole headlines was around July when he said Lonzo makes everybody better, including superstar LeBron James. 

LaVar Ball isn't backing down and wants to make it known that he is not afraid of James.

"Afraid of LeBron?! I’m not afraid of Jesus! What are you talking about?"

Davis requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans—a move that earned him a sizable fine. The Lakers have emerged as a potential destination for the All-Star center ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline. The Lakers have reportedly offered Lonzo, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and Michael Beasley in exchange for Davis and Solomon Hill.
