Per Shams Charania of the Athletic, LA Lakers head coach Luke Walton had a heated confrontation with the team’s veterans, after the loss to the Warriors.

According to Charania, Walton told his players they should play unselfishly, with several veteran players snapping back.

The heated confrontation also included the players’ complaints regarding Walton’s playing time distribution and rotations.
