The current Lebron is toxic material to any team that he is with, building the team around him is WRONG to start off with. Magic should take a leaf from the Warriors, learn how KD was seamlessly and effectively melded into the Warrior's team culture. The emphasis that Lebron be the centre of focus puts all other team mates in a total disarray. Watch out for the other teams like Raptors, Bucks, Jazz & Celtics, their concerted team plays are paying dividends on court while the Lakers are still figuring out their identity. Lebron should just get off his high horse and begin to understand today's NBA is more of teamwork and not the great but tiring solo-act that win rings.

LeBron James is a ball stopper in the 4th quarter, and plays soft defense in that same quarter. He should play off the ball late in games.

I think they are making a mistake if the Lakers fire Luke Walton. The Lakers are awful defensively, and part of that is on Lebron too. Ypu can’t not make your rotations in a league thats shooting more 3s than ever. with all that said, lakers could be 7-1 if they play more poised in these first 8 games. dont overreact, just improve

This is definitely not a championship roster. Magic needs to stick to the plan. This season wasn’t supposed to be a championship season til guys like Stephen A and Shannon Sharpe started claiming Western finals. You don’t grab these past their prime vets on one year deals thinking this year is the year. These guys would get swept by Golden State even if Phil Jackson was coaching.

Please believe Magic is behind lineups. Luke has power over plays and such but rotations is on Magic. He wants Rondo to play, KCP, and all the other bums. But honestly, people acting like they getting blown out by 50 every game. They are in every game. What Luke gonna do about Lebron missing freethrows? Ingram missing freethrows? Kuzma forcing the issue on offense? Give it time. 6 year no playoffs to all of a sudden a whole new team and they supposed to go 79-2? Man please....this is dumb

Lebron should have went to the Spurs. He wouldnt have to deal with the issue of the coach being inexperienced.

Magic failed as a coach of the Lakers, he also failed as a talk show host, and he also failed acquiring another star with Lebron to form a championship team. But this Lakers were rebuilding anyway and had a nice nucleus of young players then Lebron comes halting the young players developments until how many years Lebron will be there. In other words Magic built an awkward team currently thats neither a championship team or a rebuilding team. Seems to me Magic is the problem and not Luke.

BRONSEXUALS flood entertainment. Lebron James is overrated and can only play ONE way and is old in athlete years. Luke Walton will fall on the sword by January. As a side note, the lakers made a HUGE mistake drafting lonzo Ball #2 in the 2017 draft, when Fox, tatum, kuzma are better players. Personal opinion has nothing to do with this, he will be off the lakers soon as well.

I said before pre-season games - Luke would be replaced before the trade deadline. lebron needs his assistant coach. Perhaps they will even take Tyronn Lue because he was his assistant coach and he already knows who the boss is. LAL will create a bunch of ads such as "returning of the prodigal son who has 2 rings with LAL before as a player". But in fact, no one remembers his game as a player in LA, we know him as “that guy Iverson stepped over in the finals,” and after those finals, Tyronn left the city. Main marketing thing - more glitter and people eat it.

Lol we didn’t see comments like these during last year’s playoffs, and here we are 10 games in and it’s highly popular to say LeBron is a problem or LeBron doesn’t make teams better. If y’all really think the Lakers are gonna finish the season the same way they’re starting it, you’re out of your mind. Why? Because the exact same pattern of struggle and reaction has happened every year. Oh BuT iT’s DiFfeReNt cUz ThE WeSt. Lol that’s been the storyline every single year: “this time it’s different than last time.” Okay.. my money’s on LeBron

Here's the problem with Lebron.. he needs specific players.. people like Kobe, Durant, steph curry.. they do what they do best and the team just has to be themselves. They play their position andLebron doesnt.. point guards cant even play point guard then he gets tired and needs a point guard and Lebron can guard multiple position but he doesnt play defense not even in the finals. Hes over rated in terms of being the greatest. Hes not even the best player anymore and people act like hes far ahead.. put Durant with the Lakers and theyll be top 4 team. He brought OKC without Westbrook to 2nd seed the year he won mvp. That team was TRASH. At least Lakers have guys that can score, 4th in the league and lebron cant help them win. Hes getting exposed and they're already blaming other people

This is Luke's 3rd season with L.A.. First 2 seasons under 500 ball. 3rd season under 500 ball. Luke Walton left Golden State, and most highly coveted assistant coaching position in basketball. After filling in for an ailing Steve Kerr, Golden State ran off a run of 25 straight wins and Walton thought he was ready for prime time. No he wasn't. Ego and Hubris directed him to bail on the perfect coaching situation for glory that will never come for him in L.A. Bill Walton told his son not to jump ship because he knew that experiences like Golden State come along once in a lifetime. Did he listen? No. He should have never left Golden State until the run was over and until he learned everything that he could from Steve Kerr and that experience. But ego won the day..........and ego never wins. No way that Walton was going to be able to coach Lebron. That's a story for another day.

🤔🙄😐😶😮😯😛😜😝😏🤑🙃😬😨😰😱😵🤠🤓💀☠️Hmm Luke Walton out ? Tye Lue in ? 😉 Mark Jackson in ? Daunte Jones , Duncan got slammed in front of his teammates by Pop many times WTF are you talking about ? But Pop was an actor on slamming Duncan like that in front of the team . It wasn't in the heat of battle out of nowhere . I feel Duncan was in on it with Pop . That's what Walton needs to do with LeBron . Make it where Walton can Slam Lebron in front of the team , but collaborate with LeBron setting it up . Get in LeBron's face about something of critique value . The other guys will see that , and give Walton more respect . Belichick has been doing that with Brady for years . Slamming Brady in front of the team at times, to get the team motivated and make everyone fall in line . It's a reverse Psychology tactic really that works .

..not fair one bit..though I would like to see Luke & Gentry in N.O..applying the same formula they experienced during the Warrior's perfect season run ..but I figured this would happen..this Hollywood merger of entertainment moguls / athletes in Magic & LeBron, they want to put on a winning show for the home celeb crowd, but it takes time for new players to gel..LeBron knows this from the Heat/Spoeltra era..Magic knows this too, so to come down on Luke, juggling all of these new personalities, plus LeBron who thinks he's really the mayor of whatever city he plays for, let alone the coach, Luke has a tough task, & doing his best. if news is true, Magic not thinking like a logical player, more an illogical entertainer.

This roster doesn't favor what Luke wants to try to do. He unfortunately is a prisoner of his GSW experience, and doesn't have the actual coaching skill to adjust to his talent. Magic and Polinka have a vision that conflicts with his ability. Mark Jackson would be a better fit for this roster, and he wasn't a great fit for his GSW roster, because he was more traditional. They need a coach who won't try to mimic Golden State, and play to the strengths of the players they actually have.
