What kind of day would it be if there wasn't a little bit of drama in Los Angeles?
Following a two-game losing streak, the Los Angeles Lakers are hearing the negative chatter yet again. According to a report by Brian Windhorst of ESPN, LeBron James is ignoring Luke Walton's coaching and play calls during games. In other words, the narrative is that LeBron is running the show in Los Angeles.
It's not much different from the narrative in LeBron's previous stops, such as when he "ran" the show in Cleveland with Tyronn Lue and David Blatt as the head coaches, and when he did the same in Miami with head coach Erik Spoelstra.
Except this time around, the actual boss, Magic Johnson, is publicly disputing these types of reports. According to Magic, the Lakers have a particular system that they have in place and that Windhorst's report of LeBron running the offense is false.
