 The Lakersmanagement had prevented Bauer from threatening to cancel his contract.


Bauer has played only 47 games this season because of a sprained left ankle, which he reimbursed in late January. Unexpectedly, the Lakers and Bauers team had a serious conflict over the treatment of injuries.

In February, Bauer decided to operate with the support of Alan Foster (one of the founders of the Bauer brand, who has now been sued by Bauer) and his father Raval Bauer, but the operation was not approved by the Lakers. At that time, Bauer had gone to Ohio to prepare for surgery. Robert Palinka, the teams general manager, contacted him urgently and refused to allow him to undergo surgery, otherwise his contract would be terminated.

In the NBA, players do have to go through the teams permission to deal with injuries. The Lakers think that Bauer violates the rules and Bauer can only obey orders. They feared that Bauer would be operated on in Ohio, and even prepared a plane for Bauer to fly back to Los Angeles. When Bauer returned, the magician and Palinka accompanied him personally for examination, and he did not undergo surgery at last. Bauer said in an interview yesterday that his ankle is now recovering well and should be able to resume playing in a few weeks. But its not a pleasant experience for Bauer and the Lakers, its also a reflection of the chaos within the team. Now the Magic resigned, Walton was over, and the Lakers fired Marco Nunez, the chief trainer, who thought he was not responsible for dealing with playersinjuries. Management shuffled again and had to start rebuilding. Source: Netease Sports Author: Kewell Responsible Editor: Ouyang Shun_NS4899
