Luke Harangody once played four games in as many nights during a dominating run through both the NBA and D-League last season.  It was a stretch of basketball brilliance that will live forever in Cavaliers' history. In November, however, the Luke Harangody era ended in Cleveland. It also ended in Canton, too. Good news for Gody fans, though, is that the big man by way of Notre Dame is back on the scene like he never left. Following arthroscopic surgery, Harangody is back dominating the D-League with one devastating performance after another. Yesterday, NBA.com's Fran Blinebury took notice. In an article headlined, "Can hustle get Harangody back in the NBA?", NBA.com catches up with the former Cavaliers' forward. It opens with this awesome lede. There are Swiss watches that aren’t as reliable as Luke Harangody. No need to wind him up. He rebounds, he hustles, he gets to the foul line. Harangody played back to back games at the NBA D-League Showcase, averaging 22.5 points and 14 rebounds. Tick, tick, tick. Gody goes on to say that he's enjoying his time in Fort Wayne. “It wasn’t really a negative considering what’s happening in Cleveland and with the organization,” Harangody said. “It’s good to be in Ft. Wayne with a good group of guys. I’ve only been with them about a week, and I’m still learning about how other guys play and they’re still learning about me. It’s been an easy transition for me.” Admittedly, I'm not sure what he meant exactly about it not being really a negative considering what's happening in Cleveland and with the organization. I'm not going to think too much about it, though. Gody also said he's working on his jump shot, which he certainly should. According to Hoopdata.com, Harangody shot only 39 percent on field goal attempts from 16-23 feet last season. He also finished shooting a career low 35.4 percent from the field on the year despite his heroic performances in April. Nobody, however, hustles harder than Luke Harangody. Hopefully he stays hustling and gets himself back in the League.
