Ball is known for not mincing his words when expressing his thoughts on several topics, especially when it comes to the National Basketball Association since his son, Lonzo, is now one of the best rookies in the league and is playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. San Antonio has the fifth-best record.

The victory was the team's 12th consecutive win over Sacramento and they have not lost to the Kings since November 15, 2014. With the win, Los Angeles improved to 13-27 overall and 8-14 at home. Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 26 points, while Lamarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 20 points. His shooting attempts have gone up to 10 per game while making 45 percent from the floor.

It wasn't pretty, but the Lakers found a way agianst the Kings to snatch a 99-86 win.

Ball recently criticized Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton by saying that he lost control of the team and has been ripped by numerous people because of it. ESPN has also been getting ripped for publishing the article in the first place.

Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr is the latest National Basketball Association coach to speak up against the attention that sports media outlets are giving to LaVar Ball. Before the start of this season, Johnson set the bar quite high for the rookie, comparing Ball to himself and suggesting he would be able to get triple-doubles like he did during summer league and deal with all the pressure of being a high draft pick in LA. However, Laker rookie Kyle Kuzma spoke on the issue and called the controversial statements against Walton "white noise". "The 6'9" forward leads the team in scoring, averaging 16.9 points per game. Should Lonzo Ball solidify things at guard, the team may be on the rise in future seasons.

The Spurs on Wednesday ruled Leonard out for Thursday night's game against the Lakers. "And they already have appreciated what he brings to the table, a very unselfish player".
