Lakers Coach Luke Walton discusses how he entered into the coaching realm. Coach Walton had a serious back injury several years into his playing career and slowly started to fade away from his team. His coach at the time, Phil Jackson, offered Coach Walton the chance to sit in on staff meetings and help take down notes for timeouts during their games since he couldn’t actually play in the games. This sparked Luke Walton’s love of coaching and helped him realize how much goes on behind the scenes.
