More drama coming out of the latest report about the Lakers troubles. In the lengthy exposé by ESPN on the state of the Lakers, it has been revealed that LeBron’s agent complained about Luke Walton in November conversation involving LeBron’s business partner Maverick Carter, Rich Paul and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
In November, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Maverick Carter, LeBron’s longtime business partner, met for lunch. James’ agent, Rich Paul, was seated at a nearby table, and at one point, approached Silver to complain about Walton, multiple sources familiar with the interaction told ESPN.
Paul said he didn’t believe Walton was the right coach for the Lakers. Silver shrugged off the remark and asked whom Paul thought would be the right coach. Paul suggested Tyronn Lue.
While not trying to confront the situation head on, rather let your minions do the work, this should have been one of many bad omens for the year to come for the Lakers. Who knew this organization was such a sh*t show.
it’s usually ill-advised to fight rumors..
but if im rich paul i hop out and deny the adam silver thing immediately

He should immediately deny this if not true.
I mean, why would Rich Paul tell Adam Silver he wanted Walton fired? What did he hope that would accomplish. The NBA Commissioner can’t fire coaches.
Cue the circus music.
