Brandon Ingram scored 26 points, and Lonzo Ball contributed 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists as the Los Angeles Lakers knocked off the San Antonio Spurs 93-81 on Thursday in Los Angeles. Owner Jeanie Buss and team president Magic Johnson both tweeted their support for the Lakers head coach on Saturday. He went as far as to say that the head coach could no longer control his players, and while the Lakers was a good team, Walton was "not connecting" with them anymore.
At the beginning of the weekend, there were reports and rumors, brought to the spotlight by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, about some Lakers' executives not having unconditional support for Walton. "Nobody wants to. But our bosses tell us we have to, because of the ratings, because of the readership.' Somewhere - I guess (LaVar) is in Lithuania - LaVar Ball is laughing at all of us", Kerr added. And then the icing on the cake, he gets to spend a few years up with Steve [Kerr] at Golden State with a great organization and a great group. Ingram's development will help the Lakers now and down the road, as a young team looks for a star to emerge from its core.
"Big shoes to fill", said Worthy, now a Lakers analyst for Spectrum SportsNet. With the win, Los Angeles improved to 13-27 overall and 8-14 at home.
Seeking multiple expiring contracts in return for some intriguing pieces that could use some new scenery, while keeping an eye on the 2018 summer, the Los Angeles Lakers should be one of the busiest teams this season.
The Lakers are set to play again Monday in Memphis. As the year has played out, Ingram, Ball, and Kuzma have been earmarked as "untouchables", meaning that they won't be traded.
