It appears as though LaVar Ball’s days of talking trash after Lakers’ games are numbered.
Okay, not really. But in a recent statement, the Lakers are enforcing an old policy.
New ESPN Story: In what is being dubbed the "LaVar Ball rule," Los Angeles Lakers enforcing a postgame policy prohibiting media to interview guests of players after games. https://t.co/zLdUQ2H7Q7

But, let’s make one thing perfectly clear—it certainly isn’t the ‘LaVar Ball rule’. In fact, it’s just the reinforcing of an old policy.
“It’s not a new policy; it’s an existing policy. There has been more media presence in that area than before. That section is strictly for family and guests of players. It’s a privacy concern.”
Of course, you have to imagine LaVar will just find a way to speak his mind anyway. Meanwhile, his son Lonzo and the Lakers are 8-15 on the young season. And, are losers of five in a row and seven of their last 10.
For some reason, I don’t believe bashing players and coaches is the answer. After all, the Lakers aren’t supposed to be good just yet.
But, that isn’t going to stop LaVar Ball from talking. We know how this goes. We have all been to this dance before,
