Lucious Harris2002-03 Playoff Stats: 20 G, 0 GS, 7.8 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.6 APG, 0.5 SPG, 0.0 BPG, .391 FG%, .333 3P%,.783 FT%, 10.7 PER
After the 2003 Finals, Harris would spend one more season in the swamps of East Rutherford, averaging 6.9 points per game and posting his lowest PER (11.1) in six years. However, he did have his best statistical week as a pro the week of December 23-29,, 2003, averaging 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game en route to earning Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors. The 6’5” guard, who went to Cleveland High School in Los Angeles, ended his NBA career in 04-05 on a Cavs team alongside a young LeBron James. It was King James's sophomore season and the last time he would miss the playoffs in his career (not to this point…LeBron will always make the playoffs).
Harris hasn’t made waves since leaving the NBA, though his disappearance from the league did produce this well written Yahoo Answers exchange. So there’s that. In 2007, Harris became only the second Long Beach State 49er to have his number (30) retired. Harris remains the school – and Big West conference – all-time leading scorer with 2,312 points.
