Magic Johnson reportedly 'admonished' Luke Walton over slow start in meeting

Johnson shouted and cursed at Walton during the meeting.

"We know where we're going and we know what it takes to get there". "We need to figure out how we can string together some great games or even good games and bring our win total from where it is now. We plan on winning those in the future". The Lakers will travel to Portland for a matchup against the Blazers on Saturday night, followed by a home game against Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors the following night.

With a three-time National Basketball Association champion, four-time MVP and 14-time All-Star like James on the team's roster and a host of young talent, Johnson expects significant improvements from the Lakers. They Lakers are struggling in large part because they lack size and outside shooting. That is the task faced by Lakers coach Luke Walton, and it appears the pressure is revving up.

LeBron James' start to his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers has been without a doubt a circus. "Our first quarter was very disappointing but we battled back", coach Rick Carlisle said.

"Man, imagine if we had, it wouldn't even be...never mind", said James in the post that has so far reached 2,193,883 likes as of writing time. They got out in transition, hit a few threes, got to the rim, got to the line.

Walton has spent the season trying to find the right rotations, using 104 lineups in their eight games, second only to the rebuilding Hawks' 140, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Ever since the ink dried on LeBron James' contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, LaVar Ball has made himself scarce.

"It's hard to get a handle around the league where defence is", Stotts said. Dave McMenamin and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN report that Magic Johnson met with Walton to "admonish" him for the poor performances.

Do I think LeBron lets this kind of noise impact his play on the court? No. "But again, what those conversations are, those will remain between me and the front office".

"The game is a game of runs so you have to leave those two main people in there and rotate the other guys". I'd have to go back and look at it, but usually it's two or three things.
