Wow. Tough break for him in career debut. Best of luck on recovery.


@Lakers: Byron announces that rookie Julius Randle suffered a broken tibia. He’s currently being transferred to the hospital.


@jadande: Bryon Scott confirms Julius Randle broke his tibia

It's usually a 4-6 month recovery time so it's not likely. On the bright side at least it wasn't an ACL or Achilles.

There is still a curse in Staples Center. This is weird. The Clippers and Lakers literally switched fortunes with CP3. I'm actually sick over what happened to Randle tonight. I don't care who you root for, that **** sucks.

Got humiliated by the Mavs in 2011 playoffs and Phil retired.
Got Nash but Grandpa barely contributed.
Got Howard but couldn't keep him(first ever star in Lakers history to leave via FA).
Worst team record since 1960s.
Kobe, the previous invincible ironman, got devastated by injuries, alongside with his “D-league teammates”--Wesley Johnson, Jordan Farmar, etc. Now, our top pick ,Randle, got hurt too.
Based on what we have endured over the past few years, we are basically cursed.

Still doesn't make up for the amount of luck and success they had before.

Shaq signs with them, they turn a 13th overall pick into future HOFer and that leads to 3 peat. Then trades for Pau in a trade that was lopsided at the time and win another 2 titles.

Um, no the Lakers deserve some bad luck, its about time.

We didnt point a gun on the temples of other stars/GMs so the successful signings/trades were just displays of successful management, which had a lot to do with Dr Buss. Calling them results of luck is totally unfair. Running the Lakers is Buss family's only business so they have been putting tons of effort on it, which in turn generates victories, even championships.

Are you saying that cleveland was cursed the last 5 years? getting 3 out of the 4 first picks in the draft is cursed? and before that they had lebron? Cleveland probably has had the shortest rebuilding time ever and not only are they now back to the playoffs, they are actually competing big time for a championship. The last 5 years have been far from being cursed for the cavaliers if you ask me

before the lebron era you might be true because i didnt follow the NBA at that time so i dont know what kind of franchise it was back then

Plz read my last line “based on what we have been enduring over the PAST FEW years. ”
Dont rant and vent all your anger towards some Lakers fans on me.

For a perennial winner, just like what you described, it is a fiasco. Last season, the lakers couldn't even have 8 healthy players on court to continue the game. :facepalm:
Another great franchise, Celtics, doesnt fall as hard as the Lakers does. They traded away their aging cores and started rebuilding patiently.
Tell me if anyone had predicted the Lakers would be so horrible(BTW, when Howard arrived, Vagas predicted the Lakers to reach the finals). Then I would say it doesn't seem like a curse.

If the FAs going to LA were because of good management then the FAs leaving LA were because of bad management. Dwight leaving and Steve Nash could easily be blamed by bad FO decisions.

As a Blazer fan, it's pretty much an insult to say the Lakers are a cursed franchise. I would list out why the Blazers are a far more cursed franchise, but at this point nearly every franchise could list out their 'cursed' resume and it would far trump LAs…

:eyebrow:

you can't be championship contenders every year, especially when you make moves like signing a 40 year old Nash and expecting him to be a major contributor, or you trade for Dwight Howard without him committing to the team long turn. Everything else, injuries are just a part of the game. Kobe made it to his 18th season before suffering a major injury, that is pretty lucky. And its not like losing Randle for the year ruins the season, or that its a career ending injury.
Calling the Lakers cursed is like calling the Yankees, the Patriots or the Red Wings. It just makes no sense.

I bet you're around 15 years old. I don't mean that as a jab in any way, shape, or form. I just think you're too young to remember the Kobe/Shaq days. (Or even the "just" Kobe days) Your franchise isn't cursed, it's just the only franchise you've followed in your young life.

The Lakers are going to be bad for a long time. Nothing will improve until we get a front office overhaul much like the Dodgers got with Frank McCourt. We need someone who is good at risk management especially with this cba agreement in place. We can't approach free agency and trades like we did with Howard and Nash and especially this Kobe extension. Now we are paying the price for the next couple years. Jim and Mitch seriously need to go.

That's a damn shame. He was going to be an integral part of that Lakers bench because they really don't have much depth at the PF and C position.

Hope he can still come back this season, I thought he was one of the biggest steals of the draft.

you forgot the Chris Paul veto. that screwed the Lakers more than anything. Stern letting that go public before shutting it down is one of his failures as commissioner, imo.

if you're going to block the trade- fine. i get it. but when you let it go public, you ruin the Lakers chances of keeping control of the situation, and maintaining good relationships with Odom and Pau. neither was ever the same again. that situation played a big part in Pau leaving. he lost his trust in the managements faith in him as a player.

Bynum/Howard, lost for nothing.
Pau, lost for nothing.
Nash, lost for nothing.
Odom, lost for nothing.

you can't have that much high end talent leave without getting value back. the Lakers got nothing for Pau and Odom. thats on stern.

Lakers don't need a Leonard necessarily; they need to not have such a **** front office that has been in turmoil for years and is running the team into the ground. The foreseeable future looks awful for the Lakers, while the Spurs still are running strong- that's a testament to the front office (and probably some luck) than it is to a player like Leonard. i don't think Kawhi would help the Lakers much as presently constructed.

This makes sense that it may be a blessing in disguise, just like Spurs ' losing Robinson leading to getting Duncan. But i am really concerned that Kupchak and Kobe will sabotage it. Last season Kupchak had a golden chance to tank but he refused, which dropped the the pick to the 7th(could be top5 ).Even if he adopts the tanking strategy now, Kobe will stand in the way. Just like a lion which has just recovered from injuries, he will seize each and every opportunity to exact his revenge on anyone who doubts his excellence, especially the ESPN. He is just too proud to swallow any loss.
Therefore, IMO, the Lakers will not be worse than last year, which will give away our pick to the Suns.
Bye, our precious pick. Suns, enjoy yourselves.

I hope that doesn't happen.. Been a long time since the Lakers had a top 5 pick. That was a dumb trade from the start and Steve Nash was never going to be worth that deal at his age. I truly believe Lakers FO wants that pick. Kobe is the only guy that can stop it from happening. As crazy as it sounds, especially at his age -- you guys may want to get used to the idea of Kobe playing elswhere.. Remember, Jordan played for the Wizards. It happens.

Jordan played elsewhere by his own choice. Kobe wouldn't agree to be traded. Guy is proud. Trading means dumping.
