Five takeaways from the Lakers' 108-94 loss to the Charlotte Hornets

Five takeaways from the Lakers' 108-94 loss to the Charlotte Hornets

Ball, who isn't sure how his shoulder will be impacted by physical contact that comes with playing in a game, said he doesn't feel added pressure to stop the Lakers' eight-game losing streak.

LaVar seemingly wants to get rid of Lakers coach Luke Walton, too.

Even with starting point guard Lonzo Ball back in the lineup after an 11-day injury absence, the Lakers (11-27) simply couldn't hit shots to begin the game, which bled into their defense. They're now the second-worst team in the National Basketball Association.

Ball believes the issue is that Walton is "too young" and is unable to connect with his players, basing this statement on everyone's body language.

As time is expiring in the Nuggets' win over the Lakers, Jamal Murray dribbles the ball around Lonzo Ball, and Julius Randle doesn't like it.

"You would be lying to say that there are guys that are not frustrated on this team", Andrew Bogut told ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk during a December ESPN report. They don't want to play for him. "You can look at every player, he's not connecting with not one player", he continued. First, he complained the coaching staff was too "soft" and now he's complaining about Ball's minutes and Walton's rotations, saying Lonzo Ball was "disgusted" when he was pulled out of the first quarter with four minutes to go. "He was ready to play".

Sydney experiences hottest day since 1939 as temperatures hits 47.3°C
A mini-heatwave will see temperatures soar to 45C in parts of the city, sending Sydneysiders scurrying to escape the sun. A total fire ban means no fires can be lit in the open and all fire permits are suspended.

"No, I coach as if it's not", Walton said. "Don't try and monitor no minutes, put on restrictions".

The Los Angeles Lakers suffered their 9th straight loss Friday night when they were defeated by the Charlotte Hornets at the Staples center 108-94. After Houston, the Lakers travel to play at Philadelphia, Charlotte, New York and Cleveland.

Even if Lakers fans aren't thrilled with this latest development, they'll have to love this prediction from LaVar: "LeBron's coming to L.A". You got a two and a three. Give him LeBron and [LiAngelo].

LeBron James is a three-time NBA champion, four-time league MVP and three-time NBA Finals MVP, but LaVar Ball thinks there is only one way the King can overtake Michael Jordan as the best player in league history-join his son in Los Angeles and win a title.

It was a rough night from the field for most of the roster, particularly Kyle Kuzma (2-of-14), Jordan Clarkson (3-of-10) and Josh Hart (1-of-6).
