Luke Walton reveals what he is bringing from the Warriors to the Lakers

Luke Walton's stock grew enormously when he filled in for the injured head coach Steve Kerr last season and led the Golden State Warriors to an unprecedented 24-0 start.

The Dubs went on to win a record-setting 73 games before blowing a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Still, Walton's part in that historic side is not to be underestimated. He served as Kerr's assistant throughout their 2015 title win and clearly understands the makeup of that side and the good habits they retain.

In the summer, the L.A. Lakers brought Walton back to the place he won two NBA titles as a player and made him their head coach.

But what is he looking to bring from the Warriors to the Lakers? Besides the Splash Bros, obviously.

“The culture that we had up there is what I’m trying to build down here,” Walton said. “Obviously, [there are] different starting points. It’s a different plan of attack because of where we’re at and the youth that we have.

"Obviously some new coaches are coming in and some new [veteran players are] coming in. But the way they did things, as far as big picture, is something I’d like to see down here with the way our players develop and look forward to coming and doing the work today.”
