Magic Johnson full of praise for Luke Walton after Laker win

Magic Johnson

It’s safe to say the Los Angeles Lakers’ braintrust are voicing their support for coach Luke Walton.

After what has been a tumultuous week for Walton, team president Magic Johnson became the latest in the organization to effusively praise his coach after the Lakers won 107-101 for their fourth consecutive victory.

Between this and a vote of confidence from owner Jeanie Buss earlier Saturday, it’s quite clear that there’s a concerted effort from Lakers executives to push back against reports that Walton’s job is not secure. It’s not a particularly combative response, but it’s a very clear statement that Walton isn’t going anywhere.
