Luke Walton and Los Angeles Lakers Part ways

In news that should make Lebron James smile, the Los Angeles Lakers and head coach Luke Walton have agreed to a mutual parting of the ways. The team made the announcement on Friday afternoon that after three years Walton would no longer be their head man.

Lebron James out vs Jazz

Earlier today the Los Angeles Lakers announced that Lebron James will not play in the club’s Wednesday night game against the Utah Jazz due to ( say it with me) load management.
