Luke Walton 'missed the corn hole' because of LeBron's decision

Luke Walton 'missed the corn hole' because of LeBron's decision

Where were you on Sunday, July 1 when LeBron James rocked the basketball world by announcing he was joining the Lakers?

Former Warriors assistant coach and current Lakers head coach Luke Walton had just returned to his Manhattan Beach home and was getting ready for a family barbecue ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.

"I had just gotten back from the office, it was a beautiful Manhattan Beach day, and we had just opened up the pool cover and were getting ready to have a nice Sunday barbecue with a couple friends. We had corn hole being played in the backyard," Walton told ESPN recently.

That's when the career-changing news came down. LeBron's Klutch Sports Group had announced on Twitter that he had agreed to a four-year deal with the Lakers.

The news curtailed Walton's fun Sunday afternoon plans.

"I think I spent the next eight-and-a-half hours on the telephone. Missed my whole Sunday family barbecue. Missed the corn hole. The kids were already asleep by the time I got done taking calls," Walton said.

Now in his third season as Lakers head coach, Walton has a chance to be a part of his childhood team's return to the top of the NBA. He completely understands what it means to have a megastar like LeBron playing under the bright lights in Los Angeles.

"It's gonna be completely nuts, but it's also gonna be awesome. The whole city's gonna be behind us. We're gonna be on SportsCenter every night. If we lose, it's gonna be the end of the world. If we win, it's gonna be wild. But no matter what, it's gonna be fun," Walton said.

When the crazieness had settled down, Walton finally had a chance to reflect on what had just happened.

"I sat under the stars and said to myself, 'Damn, we got LeBron James on our team. The best player in the world is a Laker,'" Walton said.

LeBron lets down Lakers fans, doesn't show up to his own pizza party

LeBron lets down Lakers fans, doesn't show up to his own pizza party

Hey, let's have a pizza party!

... Or not... 

LeBron James the business man is a partial owner of the restaurant chain, Blaze Pizza. LeBron James the basketball player has taken his talents to Hollywood as the newest member of the Lakers. To celebrate LeBron's arrival, Blaze Pizza announced it was giving away free personal pizzas at all of its Southern California locations for three hours on Tuesday afternoon.

And LeBron seemed up for a good old fashioned pizza party. 

This single tweet caused quite the stir among Lakers fans. Lines were seen going on and on, seeming like it would never end in Culver City. There was just one problem -- James was apparently a little pre-occupied in his family pool.

"You’re at your luxurious home in your bathing suit, your pool, enjoying the weather and just chilling while we’re over here in this blazing heat trying to get a free blazing pizza that I still never got," one Lakers fan said to The Ringer

LeBron has been a Laker for less than two weeks, but he's not doing the best job making new fans.
