Is it the 3rd team all American? Is it the U18 team he just made? Is it the back to back player of the year in Ohio DII, which dunbar plays in? Maybe his 2014 Mr Basketball? The full ride to Duke or ANY school he wanted to go to because EVERY MAJOR D1 Coach wanted him? Maybe his Football offensive player of the year award? I cant put my finger on what it is so elaborate on what it takes to make John336 all Dunbar team instead of ALL-AMERICAN...

Not trying to single out John336 so anyone elaborate..... dont give me excuses give me actual feedback and an actual rebuttal/facts not your opinions
There is no doubt Luke resume is impressive and I have seen him play seven or eight times and my personal opinion he is very good but not a great. He is cant defend and struggles to get his shot off against better athletes. HIs pattern thus far vs Dunbar and TM is the same. Score heavy in the first half and fizzle because he is out of gas sometime midway through the 2 quarter.
Willie Green and Davion Ashe gave him gave him trouble.

Every guard I named on that list would have you re evaluating your lofty opinion of Luke. Im not saying Luke would be shut out but he would not look like a All American with Geron Johnson defending him. He could not hold Kurt Taylor, Mark Baker, or Duck Springer jock strap. I know this sounds ridiculous to some because many are enamoured by the stats and accolades but Imho guys like Wild Bill Higgins, Cornelius Cash, Tutu Brown, and Daequan Cook all brought way more to the court than Luke.
