Cavaliers’ Luke Walton to wear mask after broken nose

If you haven’t seen a Cleveland Cavaliers game lately (and we can’t really blame you in you haven’t tuned in) you’ve missed Luke Walton playing well. In his last 10 games he’s averaged 20 minutes, four points and 5.5 assists per game. Walton was always a gifted passer for a forward (which is why he worked so well in the triangle offense back in his Lakers days.

Now you’re seeing that passing skill again in Cleveland, and it’s been one of the few bright spots in an injury-plagued season for the Cavaliers.

Walton is going to be going with the Rip Hamilton look for a few weeks, reports the Plain Dealer.

Sounds like Walton will have this look for the rest of the season. Hopefully it doesn’t impact his passing too much, it’s one of the few reasons to tune into a Cavaliers game.

      Mark Madsen was the real token white boy for the Lakers, in the early 2000’s. Hell, even Adam Morrison has more rings than Le Bron.

    An article about Luke Walton after 4 points, 5.5 assists in 20 minutes. C’mon man. Are you serious?
    This article is as bad as Mitch Kupchak giving Luke Walton a 6 year, 30 million dollar contract.
    C’mon man, you are capable of alot better. I hope.

    Luke Walton has actually been facilitating the ball pretty well for the Cavs off the bench lately.

    Is the mask made out of all the money he stole from the Lakers?

    How is he still an NBA player? I guess the phrase, “not just what you know, but who you know” translates to the NBA as well.
