That made me laugh. Poor Luke is this laid back surfer type, and as the calls have gotten worse and worse against the Lakers, we’re starting to see him get frayed around the edges. There was a call near the end of one of those Golden State overtime losses where Clarkson drove to the basket, got the ball partially blocked I think, and then got back the ball to score. The refs called traveling, even though the replay showed the ball clearly hit the rim. In another close game, the refs missed an obvious goal tend on a Laker layup that would have tied the game but instead led to a transition three by the other team.
It’s been that kind of a season, but everyone knows that superstars get the calls in this league, and the Lakers are one of the few teams that doesn’t have even one All-Star caliber player at this time.
