    After 26 games into his first season with Lakers, he injured his knee and would not play a single game until 1983.
    As a player, he was somewhat hot tempered.
    He got into a fight with Hakeem Olajuwon during Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals in which the Houston Rockets defeated the Lakers 114-112 and the Rockets eventually clinching a Finals berth (May 21, 1986).
    That incident led to him being fired from the team.
    Lakers fans were upset that he traded their superstar center Shaquille O'Neal to the Miami Heat.
    Kobe Bryant got upset at him when Kupchak refused to trade Andrew Bynum for Jason Kidd.
    He was a member of the US Men's Basketball Team at the 1976 Summer Olympics.
    As a player, he played key roles in helping the Bullets and Lakers win their titles.
    He was named part of the NBA's All Rookie First Team in 1977.
    Despite his infamous altercation, he would later be hired by the same Lakers management in 1994 as an assistant general manager to Jerry West.
    Both Lakers fans and sports columnists hailed him for reviving the Lakers championship hopes by acquiring Pau Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies.
