Lakers went to ‘escape room’ in Milwaukee for team building exercise
With the Los Angeles Lakers in the midst of a four-game road trip, it gives their players more time to spend together and further strengthen their bond. As such, the team found a way to speed it up while they were in Milwaukee before they went up against the Bucks last Saturday.
According to Bill Oram of the Southern California News Group, the Lakers decided to visit an “escape room” where they held their team building exercise. They were divided into two groups, with the one led by Brook Lopez and Lonzo Ball, winning over Luke Walton’s. Even Luol Deng joined them, but lost together with their head coach, and was stuck with him inside — similar to his current situation with the Lakers.
Luke Walton’s team included Luol Deng. They did not get out before time elapsed, meaning Deng, who has requested a trade, was literally trapped with Walton and could not escape.

The Lakers have now lost three straight games, and saw their record drop to 5-8 for the season, which makes the need for them to build chemistry even more important. It remains to be seen though if their activity will pay dividends for them in the future, and if it will lead to more success on the court.
For now, they’ll need to find their own escape and dash out of their slump.
