Luke Walton likes kids. Loves interacting with them, helping them learn, like he did Monday at the “Get Fit with the Lakers” program.
But he does have his limits. Like when he was asked which college he attended.
“UCLA!” the nearly 400 students at Mark Twain Elementary School yelled.
“Uh, no, that was my dad,” Walton said, grimacing.
“Uh, no, not USC,” he said, grimacing harder.
Finally, after a few more shoutouts, some kid yelled “Arizona!”
Walton finally smiled.
“They were so sure about UCLA, too,” Walton said. “I was glad when one finally got it right.”
