Luke Walton — 2009 & 2010 Los Angeles Lakers
Unlike Adam Morrison, Luke Walton actually had a real role to play for the NBA champion Lakers. Walton was ninth on the Lakers in minutes in 2009 and started over half the games he played in as the token “smart guy that passes the ball and defends well and doesn’t make mistakes” next to Kobe.
Walton was never much of a shooter or scorer, or anything really outside of being known for a high basketball IQ. But the Lakers played well with him on the court just not making mistakes, and that helped Walton earn two championship rings with L.A. before returning almost a decade later for a fateful stint as a coach. Turns out he got along better with Kobe than LeBron.
