Luke Walton Says Relationship With LeBron James Is "Just Fine"
This season has been a topsy turvy one for the Los Angeles Lakers. They started the season off pretty well and were even as high as fourth place in the Western Conference thanks to the addition of LeBron James. Although, when James went down with an injury on Christmas Day, the team started to go downhill and are now 10th in the conference, three games out of a playoff spot. In the midst of all this, there have been rumors that the team and James are not meshing well with head coach Luke Walton. TMZ Sports actually caught up to Walton and asked him about his relationship with LeBron.
"LeBron and I get along just fine," Walton said.
Walton was also asked whether or not he feels as though the Lakers will be able to make the playoffs to which he replied: "We have some work to do, but we can do it." The team currently sports a record of 28-29 and have been struggling to string together multiple wins in a row.
The Lakers head coach also explained that he loves his current job and doesn't seem to mind the media frenzy that surrounds his team.
Do you think the Lakers are making the playoffs?
