Magic Johnson Reportedly 'Admonished' Lakers Coach Luke Walton For The Lakers' Slow Start

5 years ago
The Los Angeles Lakers have had a slow, up-and-down start to the season, and at 3-5, pressure is already mounting on head coach Luke Walton.

According to ESPN, team president Magic Johnson met with Walton and "admonished" him for the Lakers' slow start, sending the message to turn things around.

Johnson's feedback reportedly "cutting," leaving the feeling that Walton and the coaching staff are under pressure to win now.

The Lakers start to the season has been rocky, but not totally unexpected. Much of the roster is new, and they're adjusting to the presence of LeBron James, who changes the way an entire franchise operates.
