Finally, Magic Johnson and Jeanie Buss show they have Luke Walton’s back. After LaVar Ball publicly said that the Lakers did not want to play for Lakers and Luke had lost the team, Buss and Johnson show support to shoot down all rumors.
Jeannie Buss tweeted a picture showing her support for Luke in which they are having dinner and she even hashtagged #InLukeWeTrust
On my way to #Memphis for #Lakers game. Dinner with Rob and Luke tomorrow night. Barbecue!! @Lakers #InLukeWeTrust pic.twitter.com/cDIAHSn80a

Shortly after Magic Johnson tweeted support for Luke as well.
Coach Luke Walton has the @Lakers playing some of their best basketball of the season right now.

And also Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma liked Magic Johnson’s tweet.

This is great for Coach Walton as many thought he would be fired and replaced by former Grizzlies Head Coach David Fizdale. But, after the boss and general manager publicly back Walton it is safe to say he is not going anywhere anytime soon.
