Mike D'Antoni's wife, Laurel, takes thinly veiled shot at Lakers president Magic Johnson




 

The Lakers have begun enforcing the "LaVar Ball rule" in attempt to keep media from family and friends of the team.

But while Mike D'Antoni coached Los Angeles, his wife, Laurel, enjoyed talking in the same setting media is now banned.

Of course, the D'Antonis heard a lot, too - particularly from Magic Johnson. The Lakers legend frequently criticized the coach, and when D'Antoni was ousted, Johnson tweeted:


The D'Antonis returned to Los Angeles on Sunday, as Mike's first-place Rockets whooped the Lakers, whose front office Johnson now leads.

Laurel sure didn't bite her tongue.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:


Classless? Don't know, don't care.

Sweet? So, so, so sweet.

A big part of this season for the Lakers was figuring out which of their young stars could fit well playing alongside LeBron James.

Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report gets into why - Ingram tends to hold on to the ball longer, be less decisive - and also into the speculation around the league that the Lakers will use Ingram as a key piece of trade bait if that's how they will acquire their next star.

LeBron James was at his sluggish worst: a season-low 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting. ''We're a team that's built on energy and depth,'' James said. A day after he and Lonzo Ball each registered a triple-double in a win at Charlotte, the four-time NBA MVP had six rebounds and three assists and sat out the fourth quarter of a lopsided laugher.
