don't know. But damn, Luke on the floor makes me think why I didn't make myself eligible for the NBA...I really don't think Luke is better than me right now and I haven't played for 2 years now. I probably need one weekend in the gym to have a better jumpshot than Luke.

Sadly, a legit argument can be made that Luke is no longer the worst player on the Lakers......errrr Ron and Fish.

John ireland said just like sasha hes a tremendous player in practice and makes most of his shots. He has the coaches trust because he executes everything to a t. He simply cant do in games what he does in practice

Luke's defense!

When Luke's on court: 82.6 points per 100 possessions
When Luke's off court: 99.4 points per 100 possessions

That's better than everybody else on the team by a large margin.

Is that the Lakers points per 100 possessions?

:bow:

its finally time for Mike Brown to unleash the beast and start Luke...he could carry the team a bit offensively, especially now that others are "off", Luke's shooting could be critical for us.

Yes. I haven't looked at the stats more in-depth, but I think it's largely affected by the game in Phoenix when Luke was playing the 4. Don't quote me on that though.

@LakersReporter Luke Walton is out for tonight and tomorrow's games with gastroenteritis. He did not make the trip.

Anyone else notice that Luke Walton always hurts himself RIGHT before the trade deadline seemingly every season.

How can you be insinuating something like that? It's pure coincidence.

Even when he had some value 2-3 years ago he somehow has health issues right by trade deadline. I honestly think he is just trying his hardest to stay a laker by any means.
