Has anybody else noticed that while walton is in the starting lineup, he rarely returns after he gets his first rest and never in the first half? Instead we are forced to watch radmon brick and turn the ball. I understand phil wants to get radmon going again, but why does luke ride the bench for so long each game?

lmao... gotta love the love/hate relationship we have with our players...

one min we're doggin on puke, odumb, farmar, etc.

and before you know it, it's a love fest...

luke is fine, when he's healthy he plays well for us... space cadet on the other hand, he needs to be kept well oiled so that when we NEED him for real, he is there for us... so Phil can't just IGNORE him entirely.

Luke may go down any minute and so can Ariza...

yeh phil is in a conundrum. he has to keep walton and vladi satisfied and split their mins and have ariza. if he doesnt play vladi he will come on and shoot ill advised shots like his pull up today as he shoots the ive been riding the pine for a while and want to shoot shots etc. i tihnk its just about satisfying both and keeping them hungry for minutes etc.
