New Lakers coach Luke Walton explained how he balance his duties as Warriors assistant with being the next head coach in L.A.
“The plan was that were my priorities were to finish my job with Golden State and do everything I could to try to win a title up there. That’s a lot of time and effort with film and staff meetings. The Lakers were great respecting that. When I did have free time I’d be on the phone with Mitch talking about different things. But they’re the ones who’ve been down here in the War room all day, watching tape, working players out. It’s a team sport and I’m very confident they know what they’re doing.
