(Head coach Luke) Walton recently sat down with Chris McGee of Time Warner Cable SportsNet and discussed exactly why it’s so important establish that culture:

“When you’re developing young players I think having an environment that makes the players want to come in, makes the players want to get better, it is everything. Because it’s a business now at this level for the most part and it’s young players making millions of dollars and a lot of times they can come in and just get their shots up and do what they need to do and get outta there, and that’s not what we want. We want them coming in, staying in, having fun, going at each other, making each other better.”
