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

The Los Angeles Lakers' unlikely trio of LeBron James, Lonzo Ball, and JaVale McGee connived on a fastbreak play that is reminiscent of the Showtime squad from the 1980s.

"The scouts also have noticed that when James is running the point, he rarely looks toward the bench to receive playcalls from coach Luke Walton". That's why he does not want to see LeBron James worn down. Unless that rule is changed, LeBron James Jr. would need to play a year in college prior to beginning an National Basketball Association career.

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

It's still probably too early to really tell if Bronny, a.k.a LeBron James Jr., will actually be a top college/NBA prospect, but that's not stopping LeBron from thinking about it.

"Now we have to continue to get good at, better at, those other times where we're just playing basketball".
