The LA Lakers are in full meltdown mode. After tonight’s loss to the Warriors things got a bit heated in the locker room when several Lakers reportedly got heated with head coach Luke Walton.

Apparently the players didn’t appreciate Walton calling them out for being selfish.

Just last week reports surfaced that LeBron’s camp wanted Walton fired.

There’s a lot of tension in that building,” McMullan said, “A lot of tension in that building, and I think people are wondering about Luke Walton even though Jeanie Buss came out very strongly and said ‘I want Luke to be here, I back him 100 percent,’ but then also made the point that has to be made, and that’s that she hired Earvin Magic Johnson to make these decisions, and if Earvin feels differently she gave him the power to make those kinds of decisions. It’s clear to me, and probably to you Brian, that LeBron’s camp would prefer a coaching change. They’re not too subtle about that. I don’t think that’s fair, I don’t.”

Of course the Internet had fun with the Lakers players going after Walton.
