LeBron James' Camp Reportedly Wants Lakers Coach Luke Walton Gone

James did not participate in the team's scrimmage, but coach Luke Walton had good things to say about how the four-time MVP looked. Nothing new right? Outside of the Miami Heat, who stuck by Erik Spoelstra, numerous coaches have been fired for various reasons. Plans that seemed so great in the earlier stages have not panned out and theories that sounded great in the media now have a slim chance of happening.

Walton said James, a four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, had been working with his own doctors as well as team doctors and training staff as he recovers from a groin injury suffered in the Lakers' holiday win over the Golden State Warriors. As Bovada revealed, courtesy of Odds Shark, LeBron James and company come in behind only the Pelicans at this point.

Jeanie Buss may be backing Luke Walton as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, but whether LeBron James and his camp does is a different story.

"There's a lot of tension in that building", MacMullan continued.

"It's clear to me, and probably to you, Brian, that LeBron's camp would prefer a coaching change-they're not too subtle about that", MacMullan said per transcribed remarks from Score NBA news editor Chicco Nacion.

Windhorst: "LeBron publicly hasn't talked publicly in a month".

"Anthony has nothing but respect for the organization that he's now with and will be with until they decide that they want to honor the request that we've made", Paul told the Times. "I don't think this is a shock, is it?" "But the Pelicans still have to cooperate, and it's not like Anthony Davis is going to say 'I want to go to the Lakers only.' He's going to say he wants out and he wants to be with a contender". Jackie MacMullan discussed the rumor with Brian Windhorst on The Hoop Collective podcast.

But it has set off a potential civil war in Laker land.
