Another injury hit the Lakers during tonights game. Errr…

ESPN: Lakers forward Luke Walton came out of the game for good late in the first quarter with a right hip pointer.

    hmmm.as much as i hate laker players going down with injuries, this might actually be a blessing in disguise.

    this incident opens up minutes for vlad (great looking shots tonight against knicks) and sasssssssssssssshhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa (20 points and 12 4th quarter points). these two can contribute alot more than what luke has been doing.

    did u guys see sasha lockdown jamal crawford in the fourth with his annoying type defense. teams (denver and now new york) take cheap shots at him because of his “doghound” type defense.

    i really do think sasha, farmar, and ronny have really come to a turning point and 1 or 2 of these guys may develop into option number three.

    Maybe this was a blessing in disguise..Sasha could play more minutes now..Walton is so inefficient right now than Vujacic..At least vujacic can shoot during clutch..(remeber his dagger 3 that stop the 13 winning streak of dalaas last year?)

    i hope he’s not hurt too bad..BUT, this means more quick team play from radman..prlly a good thing

  • Lakers

    Walton Healthy makes us a good team

    Luke has been playing so poorly that hopefully some of the other players will get a chance to earn more playing time. Time to play Kobe a little more in the #3 spot and utilize Farmar, Sasha, and Crit a little more.

    This bum is hurt again???? Ok…They need to find a way to get from under that 6yr contract. Not only is this guy not talented or athletic, he is always hurt and WILL always be hurt. Luke Walton is a waste of time and money and Mitch must have smoked out when he re-signed this bum. What do you guys and Mitch see in this guy?? Of all the guys in this league, you mean to tell me you can’t find a better SF than Luke Walton??? Sh*t, give me Antione Walker over this guy.

    luke is a great team player…especially in the triangle…if he begins makn his shots again he wud be a very valuable asset to our team…we dont need another scorer on our team…luke is for passn purposes…

    You mean fat Antoine Walker who is always out of shape and only has a name because Paul Pierce set him up in Boston. You also mean that fat Antoine Walker who can’t get along with any of his coaches. That’s the one right???

    Great team player??? He does nothing on the court for 5 mil per! I’ll go ride the pine, do nothing, and be greater team player…I’ll cheer the guys on and everything for $250k a year Mitch.

  • foxxy

    MORE MINUTES FOR SASHA WHO IS PLAYING REALLY WELL…AND IS NOT AFRAID TO TAKE HIS SHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND HE CAN PLAY DEFENSE TOO!!! GO SASHA…SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT!!!!!!!!!!GOOD LUCK GUYS ON THIS LONG ROAD TRIP…5 OUT OF 9 WILL BE GREAT!!!!!!!!!! GO LAKERS!!!!

  • zenmaster2323

    I certainly could care less if Luke is injured. In fact, that is probably the reason why the Lakers won last night. If Luke stays injured for the next 9 games, we should have a decent chance on this road trip.

  • DCLAKER

    WE WANT JO,WE WANT GERALD GREEN,WE WANT R.JEFFERSON(ONCE KIDD IS GONE HE WILL BE BEGGING TO BE TRADED ALSO)WE WANT DALEMBERT,ETC.,ETC.,ETC.

SO ANY SUGGESTIONS,PLEASE,I ALWAYS HAVE OPEN EAR.
