Yep, they were going to get demolished in the first round regardless of having Kobe or not. At least now they have an excuse queued up. Sad day for the NBA and NBA fans though, terrible way to end a legendary career. Even if he is able to return to the court, he will be a shell.

None of the Lakers fans here have been talking championship for awhile now so I have no clue what this Lakers hatred rant is even about....

Kobe is having surgery right now. 9 month recovery time, hopes to be back for the start of 2013-14 season. I think he comes back, but dont think he's what he was when he does.

I think he will get back close to what he was just because he's Kobe and nobody wants it more. I just don't think he'll be there for at least a year....

So whats the move here for the Lakers? Do you try to contend for a title next year or trade Gasol for players/ picks/ cap space?

I can't see Kobe coming back and not being the same. I know that realistically the chances of him not missing a beat are slim, but it's Kobe... I will NEVER net against him. He'll be back.

Also, I'm pretty sure that most Lakers fans haven't been talking championship for awhile and Kobe's injury is not why.. should probably look at the team's injuries as a whole.

They need to focus on getting younger and more athletic whether D'Antoni is the coach or not. Pau will be moved on Draft night IMO. Also , sorry KT but this poo is funny.....

#Kobe [email protected]:

Dr executing a flawless procedure. At my direction, he's replacing the tendon with gazelles to give a little extra bounce. We are about 45 minutes in and all's going well. Doc complained a little about having to do the surgery while I'm working out on the elliptical, but I told him to just calm down and execute.

#Mamba out

Haha at least he's in good spirits....

Sucks for Kobe, but works out great for Lakers fans. When LeBron is hoisting up another championship this year, the excuse will be that it was because Kobe got hurt.

Sucks for Kobe, but works out great for Laker haters who can somehow use a Players ruptured Achilles to try and twist a knife in Laker Fans backs.

You stay classy as always.

Gasol has made it clear he wants to play where his status is more stable. I think a feasible trade would be with MIN where he could play with fellow Spaniard Ricky Rubio and in turn we get back UCLA alumn Kevin Love.

I will never say never when it comes to Mitch, but I'm not sure if we could do a Gasol for Love swap. It would be amazing if we could, although I would miss Gasol a bunch.
