      First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright Hey Nick, I get what you mean about not quitting a job that way in the real world but if Magic or anyone else gets let go there isn’t a 2 week notice. Magic doesn’t need a reference from the Lakers. He just said what everyone already knew. They asked him to take the job, they were aware he would be more of an overseer and decision maker and then he gets undercut. He had to set the record straight.

                              You wrong this time Chris! Magic needed the say so Jenny said he would have and he did not. Vision is everything, Biblical paraphrase"Where there is no vision the people will perish!" Magic was not allowed to orchestrate his vision which was the purpose of Magic being hired,PERIOD.

                                  Magic Johnson shouldn't have taken the job in the first place. Because of the time commitment that was required. He could have been an advisor

                                      It's almost becoming a parody at this point with how every Lakers story Cris tells a story about how his brother was drafted by the Lakers in the 9th grade.

                                            Race Race Race. Can't have a black man calling the shots in such an organization. Donald Sterling was unlucky and got caught. Magic was brought on to be the face of the organization, not to make big decisions. I'm not saying all white people are bad, but in these powerful and massive organizations, this is the reality of things.

                                            This is a matter of common sense. Not feelings.

                                            CC judge the man when he makes the changes he feels are right, as far as basketball is concerned. He never had that chance.

                                              Magic quit cause they did him wrong. If you work at a place that disgusts you? You're not gunna give them a notice. You're just gunna walk out.

                                                      I just realized all these nba critiques shows have one black man and one white man,skip and Shannon, first take Stephen a vs max kellerman, jalen and jacoby, and this show too, I don’t think it’s a coincidence

                                                        Let’s be clear the big issue is Lebron James is the issue. He has made it clear that if he doesn’t win another Championship he’s fine. That’s not the attitude to have on the Lakers. The optics say Lebron is enjoying himself in Los Angeles doing everything else but Making the Lakers a Championship contender

Also Nick never softens his position regardless of arguments and facts presented as counterpoints. That should tell you all you need to know. He just likes to hear himself talk.

                                                                                          • John Black

                                                                                            Magic did not work for Rob, and his time at office was between he and Jeanie. Jeanie should sell the team and take the money and run. She is not a leader, cannot stand conflict and is always looking for some outside herself to make the decision. When you act like a puppet people will stick their hands somewhere in your body and make your mouth move.
