LeBron James' Camp 'Prefer A Coaching Change' From Luke Walton

He may return to the court as early as Thursday night when the Lakers take on their crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers.

James did not participate in the team's scrimmage, but coach Luke Walton had good things to say about how the four-time MVP looked.

According to reports, LeBron's camp is now making it clear that Luke Walton isn't the long term answer for head coach. "We'll see how his body responds to that, and from there we'll take it as far as making those scrimmages longer, or if he says, 'Hey I feel great, I'll see if I can play, ' then we'll make those adjustments".

The importance of this can't be understated, as there were talks that James had done some non-contact work prior, but the fact he's in the mix at practice points to a return being near.

James will miss his 16th consecutive game Sunday when the Lakers host the Phoenix Suns.

There are now eight games remaining (including Sunday) before the All-Star break, and there have been no signs pointing to James missing the festivities that weekend.

Anthony Davis wants to be a Los Angeles Laker and Danny Ainge apparently doesn't care. The Lakers have always been rumored as a potential landing spot for Davis, and combining him with James would make for the most devastating inside-outside duo in the league. At the same time, they don't want to rush him back, especially not from a groin strain, which can be pesky if it isn't allowed to heal fully.

The Lakers will host the 76ers on Tuesday. They are tied with the Sacramento Kings and just one game ahead of the Minnesota Timberwolves. There's plenty of them and they've made it known. "I think you look on social network and look on everything else, you have all these stories of this player, this player, this player".
