When signed to LeBron James with the free Los Angeles Lakers, some media planned drama during the NBA season 2018-19. However, after playing 20 matches for this season, there has not been much trouble so far.
No one at least took part in James. Basketball operations Magic Johnson and Luke Walton decided to reduce training during 2-5 days, with all the NBA focusing on Draymond Green with Kevin Durant.
While progress in the 11-9 season of Lakers is under discussion, in recent years there has been an ESPN report about anonymous Scouts, James & # 39; ignoring & # 39; He noticed Walton's stolen calls.
However, on SiriusXM NBA radio, Johnson emphatically denied so much:
"First of all, Brian [Windhorst] get wrong All this is to be able to say something about ESPN and everyone can talk. We have the ball moving system, many pick-and-roll games. Check out if you're playing with us, the ball is not in the hands of LeBron James all the time. You can not pass because you want to let go, you are accessing the pick-and-roll performances. But yes, we're Lakers. People will talk about us, but that's not how it happens now. "
Nowadays, the best game, when playing for one of the biggest sports franchises, will usually be like this. In any sport, it's very common for players to see.
Since Walton has become coach, the leaders emphasize their responsibility, and therefore they have the power in court. Over the last three seasons, James, Rajon Rondo and veterans have been different.
