Magic Johnson Reportedly ‘Shouted And Cursed At’ Luke Walton During Their Meeting

Magic Johnson “Admonished” Luke Walton After Winless Two-Game Trip: Report Magic Johnson Scolds Luke Walton over Lakers' Poor Start

The Lakers star said Friday that his focus wasn't on news of coach Luke Walton being reprimanded by team president Magic Johnson during a meeting Tuesday with the team sitting at a disappointing 2-5. In turn, this has resulted in rumblings that things must improve soon or a change could be on the horizon.

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 Johnson reportedly was upset at Luke Walton for the team's slow start and the offense the coach was running.

The Lakers are under pressure after signing LeBron James during the offseason, but they haven't figured out their starting lineup yet. And if that does happen, two names have emerged as potential replacements, as Brandon "Scoop B" Robinson revealed.

According to Chris Broussard of Fox Sports, two former head coaches, Jason Kidd and Mark Jackson, are names to keep an eye on going forward.

"There's only one way to beat the Golden State Warriors is to go faster than them".

As for Jason Kidd, he coached the Brooklyn Nets for one season in 2013-14, going 44-38 and making the playoffs.

Walton, 38, owns a 64-108 record as an National Basketball Association head coach since being hired by the Lakers in 2016.

The Lakers are 3-5 entering the weekend. Because every season around the Lakers has drama, real and manufactured. If Walton's squad had managed to walk away with wins in those games, this could be a very different conversation. No high-fives when they come out of the game.

"We want to be as good a team as we can and win ballgames".
