And while it’s not clear if this incident will lead to any fines or suspensions, the Lakers believe it will lead to something they felt had been lacking for much of the season. “It brings you closer as a team. It lets you know that if you’re out there, I got your back no matter what,” Nance said. “Obviously you never want to see fights on the basketball court. But when something like that happens, it’s good to see everyone come together to protect our guy.”
Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. pushed Monroe away. Nance added afterward, “That’s never all right if you’re going to put hands on my teammates.” Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell separated Monroe from the scrum, too. Russell said afterward, “I just saw it kind of get out of hand really quick. It’s all reaction.”
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.
The phone conversation takes place nearly every one to two weeks. Then, Lakers reserve forward Larry Nance Jr. chats for an hour with Dallas Mavericks assistant Larry Shyatt. They talk about their lives. They reminisce on their time together at the University of Wyoming, where Nance played for four years and led the Cowboys to a Mountain West Conference championship and an NCAA tournament appearance in 2015 for the first time in 13 years. They still talk about the game, with Shyatt still providing Nance various tips on how to improve his craft. “Even though he’s not my coach,” Nance said, “he’ll always be my coach.”
