When Luke plays 19+ minutes we’re 15-0

    According to this website, Luke Walton has a very special stat we wanted to point out to all of the “Luke haters” out there.

    When Luke plays 19+ minutes we’re 15-0. I like it.

      maybe that’s because he gets those extra minutes when we’re already winning big :P

    • FLUKEE

      It’s only 19+ minutes since were having a blowout so he plays longer than 19 minutes. DUH!

    • Lakers 24 7

      Maybe we should have Luke just stand out there for 19 minutes every game.

    • Base

      When Chris Mhim plays over 2 minutes and 16 seconds. Lakers are 15-0.

      it’s a fact go check it.

      all of you have taken anything i wouldve said right outta my mouth
      sorry luke, but you had your moment

    • ab4sure

      Look up Lukes +/- minutes. Last time I saw he was 3rd on the team. But it is cool to Bash Luke so keep doing it.

    • alex

      i believe we should test this theory and play luke 19+ every game until we lose.

      ^ LOL!

    • Retrospect

      When Morrison plays 3+ minutes, we’re 1-0, go check it.

    • imfasterthanur

      We’re also undefeated whenever Shannon Brown gets a block.

    • bassti

      If you saw tonight you know that it has nothing to do with Luke. He had 4-8 in 23 minutes tonight. I think Shannon Brown would have had a better score.

      It’s coincidence! Watching this guy play basketball makes me want to PUKE! He rarely does anything good on the court so don’t be dilusional. Can’t shoot, can’t guard, can’t finish. Give me a Break!

      I think Luke is just fine as a role player on our team. He does a little bit of everything and i really dont understand all the hate he gets. Obviously hes not a star player but a team of all star players wouldnt work. He does alot of the little things that a team needs someone to do and he fits very well with the starting 5. He passes well, sets screens well, plays good team defense, he works out of the post well, and his shooting isnt horrible by any means. I think alot of u people need to watch the games a little more closely and begin to realize that just because a player doesnt put up alot of stats in the box score, doesnt mean he doesnt contribute in a lot of ways.

    • T-Dub

      Vladrad down, only Puke, Mihm, Zasha to go!

    • lyk13

      What we appreciate of Luke is his moving the ball around. His scoring is a bonus though. Just like Vlad, we hope he will hit the 3s, not necessarily passing around or something.

      Like it or not, Luke is going nowhere. The guy is n effective and important member of this team. He’s not a box score kind of guy and never will be. The sooner most look around the headlines and easy stats to see, the sooner people will appreciate how vital Luke is to the Lakers.

      Nice find, Chris.

      From a fan perspective, that is an obvious answer because there are so many Luke haters on this site. From a basketball mind, Luke is perfect for the triangle offense. He is a role player that understands the importance for ball movement from the post and the elbow. Take off the hater glasses long enough to realize that he IS good for this team.

      Besides, my wife thinks he’s really cute. She finally got a Walton jersey for Christmas! lol

    • Ethdude

      Lol you can’t compare 2min of play time to 15min Base, that was a good joke though. This entire website hates Luke. He is a leader of the free peoples, stop the hate! Guys need to find different reasons besides, “THAT GUY SUCKS!”

    • Luke Believer

      I think it gets really old when I read negative brainless comments about Luke Walton such as the one below

      “the way luke is playing…it seems like he doesnt practice at all. hey Luke, instead of being at ur bbq shack why dont u hit the practice court??”

      I’m not sure what the person who made this comment does for a living or any of the “Luke haters” for that matter do but i can guarantee you that none of you are NBA players making close to what Luke Walton makes. and i’m pretty sure you can barely afford a big mac rather than owning your own eating establishment, So obviously in my opinion, Luke, while not at the level of “Kobe Bryant” but knowledgable of the game, is managing to do something right.

      Lay off Luke and be grateful that while Luke lacks the bronze he over compensates with the basketball IQ that is what usually makes up a great team mate and future coach!

      luke sucks,He does not get any respect from other teams because he is no threat to them so when he is in the court it really is 4 lakers against 6 (luke does more for the opposing team).Get his ass out,trade ,buy him out but lets get rid of this excess baggage.He’s been riding on his dad neme to long.

    • kb24_1overjordan

    • magic johnson

    • sketch

      maybe luke should just change his number to 19 and sit on the bench!

    • ojt

      luke is one lucky worthless player.the only reason he is still a laker is he’s jackson’s bitch and fellow zen (pass the smoke) meditator.

    • kobe-wan kenobi

      i guess that is the reason why luke is here and vlad no…
      even though we will miss rad 3 pointers
