          It the owner who is wrong she didn't give Magic the power she said he would have and he said he wouldn't be able to be in the office. Everyone is missing the Owner is the cause of all this...

                                He kills me with this picture then goes onto slaughter Magic he did it yesterday. He should be banned from talking about this subject of Magic and Rob because he cant be objective. He has not been critical and seems incapable of being honest about Rob Pelinka...

                                  Magic left LA because the organization is garbage and there is no legitimate leadership or intelligence in the organization. Buss is a nice, female Dolan, nothing more!

                                              Seem like Lakers don't want to spend money but make money they maximize the profit LeBron is the biggest attractivion in the world big money grab then sell the team

                                                      Magic Johnson sound like a cry baby and Stephen a is pandering to him and helping magic save face.

                                                      Really popinjay hurt your feelings and you quit instead of firing him ? Really???

He now who he is be CUASE dewade taught him how to be a team player after he knew how it goes he stayed to him self I am the only king wrong desde taught you how.

How stupid is that? He had the whole summer to "finish the job." You lose all credibility when you talk about the Lakers. Laker fans see you Jalen, stop fronting.
