Get well, Stu!

D062881006.jpgL.A. Times: Lakers television color commentator Stu Lantz suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will have surgery on Monday.

When asked how long he’ll be out after the surgery, Lantz responded: “I’ll be back Thursday. I’m old-school. I play hurt.”

Lantz laughed. He won’t miss any games.

He did Friday night’s game and will do Sunday’s game.

The Lakers don’t play again until Thursday, when they face the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center.

Lantz will have three days to recover before he’s due back at work.

    Stu has a lot of knowlege. He can easily be a coach. Everything he says during the game is so true.
    Get well soon,
    God Bless!

    I think it would be nice to replace Stu, somebody who is young and has a pretty good voice like Mr. Myers.

  • Joshua T. Brown

    I’m kind a tired of Stu’s comments….

  • Joshua T. Brown

    I want something new like Mr. Meyer’s awesome voice…

  • Joshua T. Brown

    Sorry, Mr.Lantz but i really think you should retire man, It’s so bad that i mute my tv set, so i won’t hear your comments…..

    Stu Lantz is a legend, I like and respect all that he says about the Lakers and any other team in the NBA. The man knows basketball, we are spoiled in LA to have such great announcers for our professional sports teams and Stu Lantz is a great color commentator. Get well soon Stu! The Lakers will be here when you get back
