Update from Tania and Ramona:

Quote:
Texted a few folks about whatever it was that happened in Lakers lockeroom tonight. One described it as typical lockeroom stuff & said, “It never got close to getting out of control, people are always emotional after a loss.”

Quote:
Heard the same. Josh Hart, Michael Beasley and JaVale McGee were frustrated and got a bit heated, but it never came close to getting physical, I’m told.



Original report from Shams:

Quote:
As uncertainty surrounds Lakers into deadline week, several veterans -- including Michael Beasley -- had an emotionally-charged verbal exchange with head coach Luke Walton postgame tonight, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium. It stopped short of turning physical.


Quote:
Veterans, including Beasley, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson, challenged Walton in postgame locker room, sources said. Those involved were separated before anything escalated.


Quote:
In postgame locker room, Luke Walton preached to players on playing unselfishly, sources said, when several veteran players snapped back. As one source described it, “Heated scene.”


Quote:
The veteran players raised their voice on topics of Walton’s playing time distribution and rotations, sources said. Hope afterward among players and coaches was that this helped cleanse issues within the team.

It's ain't the Lakers if there aren't any drama. No one should be surprised by type of these in Lakersland.

To add on here, I’m told JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Michael Beasley were the focus of this message and they didn’t take kindly - JaVale more than anyone.

Who could have ever imagined that putting JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley and Rajon Rondo all in one locker room would backfire before the midway point of the season.

Agree that Lance and Beas played awful tonight. But I wouldn't include JaVale in that.

Luke did the right thing by holding them accountable because they took some terrible shots in the 4th quarter.

It’s obvious there’s no structure in what we run. The plays out of time outs, the slow starts. We are not a prepared team. We just go out there and wing it.
