Man I don’t even know where to start?? I started playing ball because of KOBE after watching the 2010 finals. I had never watched ball before that and that finals was the turning point of my life. I WANTED TO BE LIKE KOBE. I’m so FREAKING SAD right now!!!!
According to a report, DeMarcus Cousins, the Los Angeles
Lakers’ center torn his ACL.
The reports started to get in early on Thursday (by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski) stating that the center bumped his knee with an opposing player during a training session in Vegas and that he left the training with an injured knee. The final test showed that Cousins suffers from ACL.
It seems like Cousins can’t break out of his bad luck. In 2018, in the last year of his contract, Cousins suffered from an Achilles injury (which considered one of the toughest injuries in basketball) while playing in New Orleans. Last summer, after teams didn’t offer him contracts, he signed with the Golden State Warriors. At the beginning of the playoff Cousins tore his quad and managed to get back to the finals where the Toronto Raptors won the series.
This summer, many teams didn’t show any interest in him so
he signed a minimum contract with the Lakers. Cousins, 4 X All-Star, was
expected to be a key piece in this Lakers team but now might miss the entire season.
The Lakers are allowed to cut Cousins if his return time
will be after June 15th.
We hope DeMarcus will get back stronger than before.
Angry Lakers fans protested outside the team’s arena – the well-known
Staples Center. The fans are not happy of how things turned out this past
The season started with high hopes when the Lakers managed
to sign Lebron James, one of the greatest players of all time. But from that
point, things started go sideways…
It continued when no other superstar signed with the team,
then followed with questionable signs of free agents like Michael Beasley, Lance
Stephenson, Javale McGee. If that wasn’t enough, the young core of the Lakers
showed no signs of improvement despite the high hopes.
Against all odds, the Lakers took the 4th seed in
the west and things looked pretty good. But on Dec 25th, Lebron got
injured and missed almost 20 games and the young core as well and the Lakers
found themselves out of the playoff race – for the six time in a row.
Then “Magic” Johnson, the team’s president of basketball
operations and the one who convinced Lebron to sign with the Lakers, resigned
without informing Jenny Bass – the team owner. They fired their head coach Luke
Walton and still couldn’t find any other coach to replace him.
These days, we hear some rumors that the team is trying to trade
The loyal fans are sick of this and they want a change.
“Magic” Johnson who is the Lakers President of Basketball Operations, and Rob Pelinka who is the Lakers General Manager announced: “After consulting with our team doctors and medical staff, we have decided to hold LeBron out of games for the remainder of the season. This decision will allow his groin to fully heal, and is best for the future success of both LeBron and the Lakers.”
In order to show support of his teammates, The King will join the team in it’s next 2-game road trip.
