Can't say that. He won't be out for 6 weeks - it will be more. He has to stay off that leg for six weeks, and then he would have to do the rehab, blah blah blah. If it's early March and the Lakers are complete shit, I could totally see him shutting it down.

I doubt he stays off the leg. He played the entire second half with the injury basically. I'm sure he'll stay active enough so when it heals he won't be too far away from getting back into game action.

Well, my understanding is that the only reason he doesn't need surgery is because the fracture is small enough that it will heal itself if he stays off it. He was already trying to get back into season form, and now this happens. I just think it's going to be a long process.

do the lakers even have a first round pick? i feel like major markets rarely have picks cause all they do is trade



if they do, i'd say shut it down. something i don't fully understand is why teams fight to just be mediocre, it just puts the team in a deeper hole. sometimes you gotta lose to win in the future


imagine the lakers with like kobe, a decent amount of cap space, and then jabari parker/andrew wiggins/julius randle/marcus smart/that dude from australia/joel embiid


thats how you build for the future

kobe will be gone before any of those players get even close to their fullest potential. not to mention there's no way LAL is getting parker/wiggins/randle/smart, they are probably going 1-4/5 and I don't see LA getting a top 5 pick

that's why im saying shut it down, if you trade gasol and sit kobe, they could be in contention for a top 5 pick. honestly you never know with the lottery


also, those calibers players dont need to hit their ceilings right away to be effective. kyrie was great his rookie year, etc

What's hard to understand? Of course, the heads of each organization don't mind tanking to grab a future talent but do you really think the players will willingly tank? Nope. And you're high off your mind if you think they would. Each player is hard-wired to win as many games as possible. Losing is not in their vocabulary. Not only do they not want to disappoint their respective fan base, but they don't want to disappoint themselves and they sure as hell don't want to look pathetic just in case a certain team is eyeing them for future acquisition.

well maybe but kobe doesn't wanna sit, and he won't sit. they could tank and sit kobe for the year but he will have something to say about. it's kobes world the rest of the lakers are just living in it

"Sit Kobe"

Yeah, there's no way he'll let that happen.
