Celebrate good times L.A. because Luke Walton is finally off your hands.
Watch this cleverly edited video showing Los Angeles Lakers fans taking to the streets to celebrate the fact that their teams has finally freed themselves of the dreaded Luke Walton.

LOS ANGELES The root of the Lakers popularity is not simply their collection of NBA Championship trophies. It is driven by something more.
