Luke Walton Under Fire from Lakers GM Magic Johnson

Luke Walton and Le Bron James

Just eight games into the Lakers' season, team president Magic Johnson reportedly "admonished" head coach Luke Walton for the poor play thus far, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin. While the margin is razor thin, having a negative point differential at this point in the season is unaceptable for a team of the caliber the Lakers aim to be at.

It didn't take long for all that talk about patient and growth surrounding this young Lakers team to go flying out the window.

If you're a Lakers fan, these names should send you running for the hills.

And while many will point to the track record of James and coaches getting fired, the same report suggests that James has been supportive of Walton privately as much as publicly.

"Magic, myself, [general manager] Rob [Pelinka] and [president] Jeanie [Buss] are in constant communication", Walton said. This is something that we do all the time.

"They don't understand if you have a guy that's your second pick and you have the best player in the world, then don't take him out of the game, leave him in the game and rotate the three other guys around him - that's how you get victories if you want to win". "We knew it was going to be like that from the summer when 'Zo had the knee surgery". We've had a couple setbacks with some suspensions but we've played some good teams and we've had a chance to win a lot of those games. "We plan on winning those in the future".
