LeBron James ignoring Luke Walton's playcalls, running his own instead

And the Los Angeles Lakers star already has an idea of where he'd like 14-year-old LeBron James Jr.to play in 2023, at least if a recent Instagram comment is to be believed.

James added nine rebounds and seven assists in his first game since scoring a season-low 14 points in the Lakers' embarrassing loss at Denver.

The 4-time NBA Most Valuable Player's attacking abilities were on full display as he carried the Lakers to a 104-96 victory the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, when he scored 12 of his 38 points in the final 5 minutes.

"When James is running the point, he rarely looks toward the bench to receive play calls from coach Luke Walton", Windhorst wrote.

US Could Tariff iPhones and Laptops Imported from China
Trump said that the next round of Chinese tariffs will be on consumer electronics coming in from the country. Brent crude futures rose US$1.68 to US$60.48 a barrel, while U.S. crude gained US$1.16 to US$51.58 a barrel.

"I'm always fresh", James said at the start of the season, per ESPN. "How much do I defer and allow some of our young guys to figure out, and how much do I try to take over games?" It's no surprise with how they're doing without me. Just 20 games into the season, it seems Walton is falling into the bucket of David Blatt and Mike Brown: coaches who couldn't hold authority over the sharpest basketball mind on the planet. "People are going to be talking about us, but that's not how it's going right now". "The success we had previous year, it wasn't just me".

"Basically minutes, trying to make sure we don't overplay him and then also usage of the ball in his hands", Johnson told SiriusXM NBA Radio.

"We've got the best player ever to put on a jersey, so that helps us out a lot", Hart said. But hey, we're the Lakers.

"We're playing up and down", Johnson said.
