Date: 12/9/1977
Victim: Rudy Tomjanovich, Houston Rockets
Punishment: 26-game suspension
Complex Says: Rudy T missed the next five months of play and needed reconstructive surgery on his face due to a broken nose, and fractures to his face and skull. The Lakers had to pay up $3.2 million in a lawsuit settlement with Tomjanovich. L.A., millions of dollars, a broken face, and lots of plastic surgery? Is this the "Heidi Montag" story?
