A night before Luke Walton lost the cushiest spot in the NBA, after an overtime win against the New Orleans Hornets, something in me snapped, & I decided to make Luke Walton a target for some jokery on Twitter.
Unbeknownst to me at the time, Luuuuuuuuuke was on the trading block, up for auction.
When the news of his actual trade went viral the next day, it was quickly overshadowed by Derek Fisher’s even more shocking trade. & rightfully so, I might add. Derek Fisher is a Los Angeles Lakers legend, & no one that can take that away from him. Luke Walton, on the other hand, will probably not get the send-off that he deserves, even though he’s been a part of the Lakers franchise long than most of the roster. (& has more championship rings than your favorite player.) Therefore, we at R&WIFDP want to send Luke off with a hefty salute. & a hearty laugh.
Thanks for keeping the bench warm, Luke. Good luck in Ohio. If you see Cam’ron, Lebron James, or Drew Carey, be sure to get an autograph.
