“D’Angelo only responded after Monroe had grabbed Nick by the neck and thrown him,” an angry Walton said. “If D’Angelo didn’t push him, I would have been (ticked) off at D’Angelo. He did the right thing. So for the NBA to say that the two of them did the same thing and just canceled each other out is absolute crap to me. “I don’t know if he (Monroe) was mad that (Ivica) Zubac was kicking his butt all night long out there. But if you grab somebody by the neck, that’s not right. And then Monroe went and slapped Brandon (Ingram) in the face. So he did all that and got the same penalty as D’Angelo did for shoving somebody in the back and defending a teammate.”
Storyline: Lakers-Bucks Scuffle
Monroe kept trying to attack Young, and it appeared he would have done so if not for Nance, Russell and officials intervening. So to prevent Monroe from making any counter move, Lakers forward Brandon Ingram shoved Monroe away. Monroe then grabbed Ingram’s neck before pushing back. While Lakers rookie center Ivica Zubac separated Monroe from retaliating anymore, a security guard who Lakers coach Luke Walton later said works for the Bucks grabbed Ingram by his jersey before using force.
David Falk, Monroe’s highly-respected agent, said Tuesday he expects his client to remain with the Bucks the rest of the season. Furthermore, Falk said Monroe doesn’t have any strong desires to be dealt. “Anything is possible in the NBA, but I don’t expect him to be traded,’’ Falk said. “He’s having a great season and wants to help the Bucks make the playoffs. He wants to be in the playoffs in the worst way. He’s never been in the playoffs. That’s his goal right now.’’
