Ball did little to put out the fire heating up Walton's seat by refusing to outwardly endorse his coach with his father's comments freshly floating about and with the Lakers on a nine-game losing streak and struggling to compete on a nightly basis. Carlisle added many coaches "are upset" at ESPN, saying it has now "eroded trust".

This comes despite ESPN's December reports that LaVar was asked by the Lakers front office to tone down his criticisms of the head coach.
"Derek was a great defender who was one of the best point guards in Mavericks history", Carlisle said. But part of that partnership is that the coaches do a lot of things to help them with access, interviews, all those kinds of things.
"Even if you bring in a LeBron or a (Paul) George, he can't coach them guys". "Printing an article where the father of an National Basketball Association player has an opinion - that is printed as anything like legitimate - erodes the trust that we've built with ESPN".

That team won the first 24 games of the season and 39-4 under Walton's guidance. "To have to deal with these kind of ignorant distractions is deplorable".
A Dallas-based reporter from ESPN questioned Carlisle's reaction, telling him it's not its job to please the coaches.
"You have my quote", Carlisle responded. "They should look at their sources and do a better job of determining whether they have any merit or any validity or are they just blowhard loudmouths". Only one way, to say every team I've gone to I've won a championship.
