Multiple Players Confront Luke Walton Following Loss to Warriors
Safe to say, this has been an up and down season for the Los Angeles Lakers.
But since LeBron James’ injury and reports of the Lakers going all in on New Orleans Pelicans’ star Anthony Davis, things have been very uneasy in La-La Land.
After a Golden State Warriors come-from-behind 115-101 victory on a night in which James was sitting out due to “load management”, things got very heated. Head Coach Luke Walton was preaching the importance of teamwork following the defeat when he was met by some of the team’s veteran players.
Reported as an “emotionally-charged verbal exchange” inside the locker room, Michael Beasley, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, and Josh Hart were all allegedly involved in the spat. Beasley has most notably been involved in trade rumours all week.
The NBA trade deadline is on February 7.
