                        #SELLTEAMJEAN. She has grossly mismanaged this team obviously. When Earvin said that Jeannie and him would have "cried" if he personally told her- I threw up a little bit in my mouth. Weak-ass stuff. Maybe she can pose for Playboy Senior?

                                            Magic having too much on his plate with other business he has is just an EXCUSE. He would have never taken this job, he made his first and worst mistake, by picking lonzo. Waste of a #1 pick and a roster space. Lebron trying to run the team and things not going well, made him realize, it's just too much for him. He doesn't do anything for his other businesses he has someone doing all the work for him LOL... he just sits back and collects. So it's all fake, he messed up and he knew it, NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT

                                                                                              Richard Jefferson is full of shit. The Lakers are still fallling. They dont even know who their next Pres is. So if Magic was the problem then how is the problem fixed when they dont have a replacement. And since yall give Magic all that blame that mean if they dont get the right guy then they got the same problem right? FOH

                                                                                              Still cant believe yall are letting ESPN convince yall that somehow Magic is the reason they lost to all the worst teams in the league. SMH
