The Los Angeles Lakers were the big story yesterday as a report came out from ESPN's Baxter Holmes detailing just how poorly run the Lakers were this season. There were a ton of storylines to come out of the report, including one that said LeBron James' agent Rich Paul spoke to NBA commissioner Adam Silver about head coach Luke Walton and the job he was doing. Paul was reportedly not a fan of Walton and ended up telling Silver that the team should replace him with Ty Lue.
Silver was on ESPN's Get Up this morning and spoke about the report, essentially confirming that the conversation took place. While Paul was able to explain his position to Silver, the commissioner had not intentions of doing anything about it.
"He was in the same restaurant," Silver said. "There were two people sitting there. He sat down for a second, and I think he said something along the lines that, 'Luke Walton is not the right guy to coach LeBron.' My reaction was to shrug my shoulders and maybe say, 'Well, who do you think is the right guy to coach?' And he mentioned a name and that was that. I think as commissioner, I don't want to shut people off who have a point of view."
