Walton was most upset about the Bucks staffer putting his hands on and shoving Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram. In the heat of the moment, he may have just been trying to break up a potential fight, but Walton felt like that crossed the line considering that there was no punishment for him.
Overall, Walton did not like that there was a fight but he said he was happy that his players had each other’s backs in the moment.
We’ll see how the NBA handles the incident and if there are any further punishments handed out.
