The NBA recently made it known that Luke Walton will not receive credit for the wins that the Golden State Warriors will accumulate while he is at the helm during Steve Kerr’s recovery. One thing is for sure, Walton has done a great job keeping the train running and running on record pace. I’m aware that Walton has the luxury of coaching the best team in the NBA, but he has helped lead this team to a 19-0 start.
The Kobe Bryant era has come to a close and with that door closing, Byron Scott shouldn’t be too far behind. Look, I know Walton doesn’t have a bevy of coaching experience but he’s the hot coaching name this off-season guaranteed. In life sometimes it’s about timing and Walton is getting his name hot at the perfect time because the Lakers are not a good team and haven’t been for 3 years now, and it’s the perfect time for the Lakers to make this happen. It will give them a splash move that no one can really hate because the Lakers tend to hire past Lakers, so why not hire one that actually played in the NBA this decade.
