For his efforts on the bench and his valuable high-fives to his teammates Bynum has earned an “A,” for his zero minutes on the court he has earned a “F.”


Theo Ratliff is an old NBA player, at the age of 37, and has not produced much for the Los Angeles Lakers.  Ratliff is averaging 1.6 rebounds per game and less than one point and one assist per game.

To make it worse, Ratliff is currently injured and will be out for four-to-six weeks.  So Theo Ratliff your grade for the season thus far is— a “D-.”


The Machine has not had a very productive season, and has been in Phil Jackson’s “Doghouse” for a while.

Sasha Vujacic is averaging 2.1 point per game and under one assist and one rebound per contest.  For his less than spectacular play, Vujacic deserves a “D.”


Luke Walton has been plagued with injuries for most of last season, and has not been 100% for this season. Walton has been subbed in for a few  games, but he has not been very productive.

Walton has earned a “D-” for his less-than flashy numbers
