This probably isn’t a surprise but Luke Walton doesn’t plan on visiting the past anytime soon.
That’s what happens when you’re part of a blown 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
Walton recently revealed that he has yet to watch Game 7 of last year’s NBA Finals and that he will never get over the loss.

This isn’t uncommon for an athlete or coach and speaks to the magnitude of the loss for the Warriors.
The good news for Walton is he’s gotten to turn over a new leaf taking over the young and coming Los Angeles Lakers. Walton’s Lakers started the year exceeding expectations and have since regressed to what the mean probably is. Excitement still remains in the air and the team is happy to have Walton there.
That should help Walton one day get over the epic collapse he experienced in Oakland.
