Howard will be out for a long time with a torn labrum in his right shoulder!
Pau not on road trip with a concussion
Hill not on road trip with a hip injury
Man, the lakers are cursed!
Kind of makes one wonder if our so called "C" word (I won't say it) got moved across the hall. Such bad luck I too would feel sorry for them,,if they weren't so busy ragging on us all the time. Maybe this is just karma for giving us grief (with their mouths) for so long.
I think curse is not the right word for it. Its definitely them finally getting their just due. They have left other franchises barren because of their so called trades, orlando twice, memphis, etc. And i love the way Lakers fans credit the Gasol trade as the reason why the grizzlies are doing better. In all reality the only piece they got that meant a damn in that trade was Marc Gasol, and even then he is not the same caliber of player that Pau was (when the trade was made Gasol wasnt the useless neandertal he is now, he was actually an amazing center).
The true reasons for the Grizzlies success is Zach Randolph (who was the best player when he got to the Grizzlies), which we gave them, Mike Connoley, and Rudy Gay...none of which were pieces that had anything to do with the Gasol trade. All the other peices in that trade didnt do anything for them.
Now its finally time that the Lakers are on the bad end of a trade. It looks like Phoenix jettisoned an old point guard an got themselves quite a few nice picks, among those may be a lottery pick from 2013. I honestly hope that the suns end up drafting a player that ends up being a league MVp and all star.
