Report: LeBron James has had ‘zero contact’ with Lakers head coach Luke Walton

  Report: LeBron James has had ‘zero contact’ with Lakers head coach Luke Walton The Los Angeles Lakers worked extremely hard to convince LeBron James to sign with them this offseason, but apparently they did not need any help from their head coach. Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reports that LeBron had “zero contact” with Luke Walton while the Lakers were recruiting the four-time NBA MVP. As of Wednesday, the two still had not met. A source close to #LeBron tells me that Bron had zero contact w/#Lakers head coach Luke Walton throughout the Lakers’ entire recruitment process. “LeBron never met Luke at all,” source says — and they still have not met. Walton will be James’ seventh full-time NBA head coach. — Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) July 4, 2018 Walton is only five years older than James, and he was hired as the Lakers coach when they were looking to rebuild with a young roster. It remains to be seen how he will handle coaching one of the biggest icons in NBA history, but the Lakers front office will almost certainly go in another direction if LeBron decides he doesn’t want to play for Walton. We have already seen examples of how much respect LeBron has for the Lakers organization, and that should include the head coach. Him not having to meet with Walton probably says more about how much he wanted to play for L.A. than anything.

When Kevin O ' Leary took his teenage son, Trevor, to Europe, he flew first - class . Trevor sat in the back, in economy. While this might sound cruel and unfair, the "Shark Tank" investor wanted to teach his son a lesson about the value of money.

"Entrepreneurship is not about the pursuit of wealth or money, nothing to do with it," he tells CNBC Make It. "It's the pursuit of personal freedom."

It's a lesson he hopes to pass on to his children Trevor and Savannah, both now in their 20s.

"I can afford to take my kids to any city anywhere on Earth every weekend, and I do. I work all week long, I'm usually gone, but I always say to my family, 'Pick a city; we'll all meet together,'" O'Leary says.

O'Leary's son Trevor often asks to tag along on trips to Geneva, Switzerland, where O'Leary's stepfather, George Kanawaty lives. (Kanawaty sparked O'Leary's love of travel as a kid, when he moved the family to exotic countries like Cambodia, Cyprus and Tunisia for his work with the International Labour Organization.)

"We were getting on a flight to Geneva, it's a long flight, and Trevor said to me, 'Dad, why is it every time we get on this flight, I have to take a left and go sit in the back of the plane, and you take a right and go to the front? [You] sit in a big chair and they roll roast beef on a trolley by you, and I'm back in 69D.'"

O'Leary says tells CNBC Make It he has a simple answer: "I say, 'Trevor, you don't have any money.'"

"My son is making the connection between money and personal freedom," O'Leary writes in his book "Cold Hard Truth on Family, Kids and Money." "I think that's the greatest gift I've ever given him: to help him see that connection. And I constantly reinforce it by doing Mean Dad things like making him sit in those crappy economy seats."
