An icon in Portland, Lucas was a four-time NBA All-Star, playing 12 seasons with six teams, including one with the Lakers in 1985-86.

Arriving in Portland from the American Basketball Assn., Lucas formed a menacing tandem with Bill Walton as the Trail Blazers caught lightning in a bottle, winning the 1977 NBA title in their first season together.

Walton named his son Luke, a current Lakers player, for Lucas, who at 6 feet 9 and 250 pounds loved his nickname, "the Enforcer," and the role that went with it.
