Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton recently called the team “absolutely” a potential title contender by the end of the season, with the addition of LeBron James in 2018 NBA free agency. Jorge Sedano, Brian Windhorst and Jackie MacMullan of The Jump react to the comments, and whether he is just saying what Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss want to hear, whether it means the Lakers might go get Jimmy Butler in a trade, and whether he will face trouble trying to mix a roster that includes LeBron, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley.
