LaVar strikes again (you knew he would):

Sound the alarms and shelve the conspiracy theories about his silence, because LaVar Ball has resumed publicly speaking his mind about his son Lonzo Ball, and how Luke Walton and the Los Angeles Lakers are using him.

While speaking to someone from TMZ — because of course it was TMZ — LaVar essentially implied that the Lakers would or should fire Luke Walton if he doesn’t start playing Lonzo more.

“If he keep playing Lonzo a lot — over 35 minutes — he’ll stick around,” Ball says. “Less, he won’t.”

Whatever you say, Dad. How about you help him with his shot instead?
