He also likes the Lakers' direction and the teach-first, worry-about-wins-later approach chosen by Coach Luke Walton, who was an assistant with the Warriors. The Lakers' older players, West said, can play key roles in showing the younger ones how to be consistently competitive. "If they can play at a higher level I think that will encourage the younger players to be better players, to be players that can be productive not for now but a few years and to try to build a future and forget about the past," West said.
I too like the Lakers' direction, especially some of their younger perimeter players who I think have a promising future (e.g. Jordan Clarkson, Brandon Ingram, and D'Angelo Russell). I also appreciate Luke Walton's contributions to the Warriors' franchise and wish him well individually.
But I also like seeing the Lakers lose. So I eagerly look forward to watching the Warriors continue to grow and leave opponents helpless to stop them.
