Those other rookies were on worse to far worse teams.
I'm not understanding. He doesn't get credit for being a part of one of the best and most used lineups the clippers played all season but other players get a pass for playing on lousy teams?
In the playoffs, he averaged 13.7 points (on 46.7/50/85 splits), 2.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.0 steals per game in 28.8 minutes.
He was 2nd Team All-Rookie with just a few votes behind Marvin Bagley for 1st Team. He had a true shooting percentage of 1/100th less than Luka at .554.
He might not be an all time talent, but you are nit picking him excessively. I've not heard anyone that watched him that doesn't think he showed a lot of great things as a rookie. Like I said, there is a reason Camelo projections have him as a future all star.
