However, Ingram told Mike Trudell on the latest episode of “Lakers Voices” that Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson has told him to relax about how things are going and not stress too much about his slow-ish start: ”I actually talked to Magic maybe a week ago I had the same conversation with him about just being patient. He was just telling me, know ‘it’s gonna come.’ With all the work that I put in this summer, just let it come and just have fun playing basketball.” ”You really don’t want to listen to everyone (about) playing basketball, because everybody is going to tell you what you want. But to hear it from a guy that’s been through it is better.”

LeBron wants 'Melo in Los Angeles?

LeBron​ James would​ like​ to​ get​ Carmelo Anthony to Los Angeles with​ him on​ the​ Lakers, a league​ source​ told​​ The Athletic. Anthony, 34, is estranged from the Houston Rockets – still on their payroll for the league-minimum $2.4 million but gone from the team after the two sides decided he was not a fit after just 10 games. He can’t be traded until at least Dec. 15, and sources said there had been no request made by James to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka to make a deal for his friend. Nor would there be.

In his SiriusXM interview, Johnson said reducing LeBron’s minutes is a goal, but so is limiting “usage of the ball in his hands.” “We got a lot of ball handlers so we feel we won’t overuse him in terms of his ball handling and also every play has to run through him,” Johnson said. “I think we got proven scorers — Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram … and then when you have two point guards like Ball and Rondo, we don’t have to have LeBron having the ball in his hands all the time.”
Magic Johnson says he doesn’t want LeBron James to be so overworked by the Los Angeles Lakers that it becomes “Cleveland all over again.” Kobe Bryant says James has been “doing everything” and noted that “that’s not the recipe for winning championship by no means.” What does James think about his workload with the Lakers? “I don’t know what asking me to do too much is, to be honest,” James said after practice Tuesday. “I just play my game.”
