Luke Walton’s reaction after learning Lakers got LeBron James

For Lakers head coach Luke Walton, the moment he learned that the three-time National Basketball Association champion is going to be donning Purple and Gold colors had left his senses, teetering on the edge of what's real and what's not, per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

If you find yourself wondering why LeBron broke his Twitter hiatus to promote what is essentially a fast food pizza joint, then make his first public appearance since signing with the Lakers at that fast food pizza joint.well, the answer is quite simple: LeBron is one of the brand's original investors.

This has put head coach Luke Walton in his third season with the team in the position of coaching arguably the best player in the league.

"It's actually amusing that I'm actually on the same team as him". "It's going to be incredible". Instead, LeBron will join a different young core in Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart in Los Angeles.
