After studying Charania's report reside on the scene, ESPN did a bit digging of their very own. They realized that JaVale McGee was equally perturbed (as Beasley) and simply as vocal throughout the heated alternate. Walton is believed to have singled Beasley and McGee out for making "poor choices" within the clutch. The veteran forwards countered Walton's criticism by suggesting a scarcity of consistency within the coach's dealing with of the Lakers' rotation.

Interestingly sufficient, Michael Beasley acquired right into a heated argument with coach Walton as soon as earlier than, after a 38-128 time beyond regulation victory in Oklahoma City. throughout their January 17th argument, Beasley is claimed to have repeatedly addressed his coach as "Bro" till issues petered out - solely to renew at a later time. And worst of all, sources near the group consider LeBron James and his camp are pushing for a cultural change on the teaching place.
