Luke Walton, Matt Leinart destroy basketball rec league (GIF)


Let’s be honest – Luke Walton and Matt Leinart randomly showing up to an open gym run isn’t exactly the most intimidating thing you’ll come across.

Sure, Walton spent a handful of seasons playing basketball at the NBA level and Leinart was successful on the college gridiron, but it’s not like LeBron James walked in on your recreational basketball league.

Shockingly enough though, the Walton/Leinart team ended up losing the game, through it was through no fault of those two.

You can watch the two ball it up (and laugh at some of the woeful play from other competition) in the below video:

Also – what’s the over/under on days until the Lakers offer either a ten day contract?!
