Despite the Lakers underachieving this year by some peoples unrealistic expectations, Luke Walton, still is beloved by everyone involved with the Lakers. Whether you're a player, fan, or even member of the media Luke Walton usually is appreciated by all. Last night, he continued his good standing in the eyes of Lakers nation when he went full savage mode ripping the referees, and trying to bring back real basket in a totally new way.
Walton was upset that a member of the Bucks coaching staff shoved Brandon Ingram on the court during a scuffle that took place , when their were no consequences handed out by the referees, Walton figured it was time to solve the problem himself. Walton is going to hire enforcers to sit on the bench, so when a fight breaks out they can go out their tossing bodies and cracking skulls, while the players just back away avoiding ejection. Sounds like a sound proof plan by Coach Walton, if can bring in some former UFC fighters, or even WWE wrestlers to be the bodyguards of LakeShow 2.0, I'd be 100% on board.
In all seriousness, Walton is right, what happened last night was ridiculous and he had every right to be furious. If the players want to get physical with each other that's one thing, they know consequences will be coming their way. When members of the staff do it and face absolutely no repercussions it's truly embarrassing. These NBA referees need to work on their riot control because if they don't, Luke won't be standing for it, and will have absolutely no problem taking matters into his own hands.
