LaVar Ball’s most recent comments could get Lonzo traded
LaVar Ball is abroad in Lithuania, but still somehow managing to undermine the Lakers with recent comments that Lonzo would refuse to re-sign with the team unless they signed all three of his sons.
Colin thinks most of what LaVar says is irrelevant, but his most recent remarks create a serious crisis for Magic and the organization.
On a weekend where Magic wants to use hosting the All-Star Game as a showcase to potential free agents, LaVar’s comments couldn’t come at a worse time. Colin believes if L.A. plans to make an aggressive run at LeBron James and Paul George or other top shelf players, they have to at least consider getting the constant distraction of LaVar out of the picture by trading Lonzo.
Steve Kerr shows he’s secure enough in himself to let his players coach themselves
Steve Kerr allowed his players to run timeout huddles and coach mostly themselves in a blowout win over Phoenix, and while some took the move as disrespectful, Kerr said he did it as a tactic to re-engage his slumping team.
Colin thought the move was smart because the middle of the NBA season can be a slog, but it also showed Kerr’s security in himself because some have implied that the Warriors are so stacked that any coach could win a title with any coach, or none at all.
Kerr has heard the critiques, but he made this move because it was best for his team, not best for his ego. Few NBA coaches would be willing to do the same.
