'LaVar Ball Rule' now enforced at Lakers' home games

'LaVar Ball Rule' now enforced at Lakers' home games

"It's not a new policy; it's an existing policy", a Lakers spokesperson told ESPN.

Arena security and Lakers employees are now cracking down on a rule that was not previously enforced, asking media to leave the area, according to Haynes. Because there is more of a media presence than in previous seasons, the Lakers are now keeping the media away from the guests and family of players. Given how outspoken Lonzo Ball's dad is, many around the arena have dubbed the regulation the "LaVar Ball rule", reported ESPN's Chris Haynes. The "LaVar Ball" rule will now prohibit media members to gather around where the family and associates of players are.

Ball has been widely critical of Lakers coach Luke Walton for not being tougher on his son.

Maybe that's all they want - some space between the end of a game and a LaVar Ball rant, but Ball can easily make an impromptu press conference happen if he wants to.

On Wednesday, after a 127-123 loss in overtime to the Golden State Warriors, in a postgame interview with ESPN, LaVar Ball said Julius Randle should have passed the ball ahead to his son in transition for a potential game victor, and he questioned Walton's decision to call a timeout.
