Magic Johnson came down from on high last week and expressed frustration with the Lakers, their sets and the slow start and coach Luke Walton caught his wrath.

Walton however played down any suggestion that his job could be at risk in comments to reporters on Friday.

There's no question Johnson and the rest of the Lakers front office believe with James and a plethora of young talent that the team should be winning immediately.

The Lakers are under pressure after signing LeBron James during the offseason, but they haven't figured out their starting lineup yet.

The Lakers started the season 3-5, and a recent two-game skid reportedly prompted Johnson to chide Walton for the team's performance.

"I got the suspension and we had guys fill in that was doing really, really good and Kuzma was doing really, really good in his role and coach made a decision to stick with him", Ingram said late Wednesday night. They Lakers are struggling in large part because they lack size and outside shooting.

"We know where we're going and we know what it takes to get there".


"I think the entire game we didn't shoot the ball really well from three", said Damian Lillard.

Lakers: Home against Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

The Lakers are playing about as well as expected at this point, considering the cast around James. "It's our choice either to hang on to those, or it's our choice to stay present and focus our energy and time on what we can do to get better".

"It's Halloween so we had to give the crowd a scare, I guess", said James.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Lakers had utilized 93 different player combinations through their first seven games, second only to the Hawks' 122.

"Magic and I talk a lot about basketball and our team and his opinions and my opinions", Walton said. I'd have to go back and look at it, but usually it's two or three things.
