Walton faced one of the toughest years of his career in 2009-2010. He was constantly beaten up by injuries, and when healthy didn’t get a lot of time on the floor to obtain a rhythm. However, his team-first mentality is always appreciated and is something that any NBA team would appreciate.
While he will never win a three-point shooting contest or be an NBA All-Star, Walton is a serviceable player that can really help the Lakers on and off the floor. However, due to the constant injuries and an overall lack of opportunities this season, Walton earns a C grade for the season. He came alive in the Finals, and played crucial minutes against the Celtics while providing solid returns.
