On April 4, Beijing Time, the Lakers failed to make the playoffs this season, and there were many uncertainties about Luke Walton's position. Jenny Buss talked about Wharton in an interview.
"Walton came to the team when he was a rookie. It was the last season of the OK era. He could be said to be the bridge between the OK era and the Kobe Gasol era. I don't think he's aware of his talent, his leadership.
"He can connect people of all ages, and I think he has done a very good job," Buss said.
The Lakers have only played five games this season, and injuries are the biggest problem.
"It's a challenge for coaches to keep changing their lineups." "But we were on the right track and beat the Warriors at Christmas, which was a very good result for me, but James was injured, which put a lot of pressure on the coach," Buss said.
"I'll listen to the magician when it comes to basketball decisions. He knows what the team is going to look like and in what direction, and we're building a team for that. The Lakers are moving in the right direction.
