In the end Luke gave the ultimate sacrifice for this team. Well done.

So long, Luke. :jam2:

I'll always remember him for giving up the starting spot to Trevor....very selfless and classy thing to do.

I like Luke the person, but Luke the basketball player has been deadweight for years. Thank you Mitch.

Thanks Luke for being a Laker, I know you loved it here. Peace buddy.

Postby Forward Three on Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:12 am

It's weird, he wasn't a great player in the NBA, had health issues(as well as health "issues") was never in particularly good shape, probably can't even dunk a ball today, and while he _did_ have respectable BB knowledge and was by no means a dumb player, he really just didn't add anything of essential value to this team. I think it was cool seeing him with a clipboard those few times and I wonder if he won't stick around the league as an assistant or even eventual head coach one day.

Anyway, point being, despite all of that, he was still a Laker for a long time and you got used to having him around. So on that basis alone, wish him well moving forward, even though realistically, It's not like he's going to be evolving his game from here. He'll likely continue to ride the bench and then retire within a couple of seasons.

I am surpised Luke is gone he has been part of this team for a long, long time. I don't hate him like so many here and actually saw what he did bring to the table when he got to play. All that being said, Thanks Luke for being a great teammate and role player in a league that has nothing but me-first divas. Good Luck in Cleveland... Oh and Foul the hell out of Lebron when you play the Heat.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Thank you, Luke. You are a classy guy and a great teammate. Unfortunately, you were not able to contribute much... uhh... recently, but I wish you luck with the restaurant and the BBQ business. :bow:

but now how will we know when a game is considered to be over?

you gotta give it to LUke. He had no business being in the NBA. Worse than Ammo. But he got himself a nice 5 year contract, milked it with buncha injuries and got front court seats at Staples for the last however many years. And he gets a $5-600k bonus for being traded.

He's a smart man in my books. Good for you PUke. Aut as Ari Gold says.....Finally, GTFOut.
