People acting like Fox is way better than Lonzo. Zo is better than Fox now all around

Stephen A left Magic off the hook. When they were talking about the Zubac trade Stephen A. mentioned Zubac's numbers like they weren't much but he didn't mention that he was averaging those numbers in just under 10 minutes per game! Zubac averaged 5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in 9.8 minutes per game during the postseason for the Clippers. Those are great numbers in under 10 minutes. I expected Stephen A to mention that to Magic when Magic felt he made his case by trading away Zubac, but he didn't.

This was a poor trade. The guys they were offering are the lakers future. I'd rather have 3 or 4 good players than one great player because 1 great player cannot win a championship when Bron Leaves. Build a dynasty not a 1 and done!!!😡😡

Magic wanted Luke Walton who imo was horrible for the Lakers besides coaching a team that had the deepest cheimstry in the leage for a decade (imo). He wanted to trade 4 years of our drafting for a guy who said he would love to play here regardless of what we can do. So imo No mather if it was Palinka or Johnson we would still be in a shithole
Magic made a decision and he sticks by it.

All I'm hearing is this player doesnt suit Lebron, that player doesnt fit Lebrons system haha. KD could fit in anywhere. Kawhi could. PG could. Lebrons ugly offense needs it's own system.

This segment needed more time on Zubac, I wanted answers damn it.
David Stephens
I like how people try to hat Ron the decision. All of us would trade that whole team for Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis is way better than those fools. Even if the lakers made the playoffs Lebron wouldn’t be able to win that terrible crew. It was just the Cavs all over agai.

Think about the HAUL the Pels could’ve had going into this season. London, Ingram, Kuzma, Zion, Randle. They missed out by not taking our trade.

Some major hate for Zubac they didnt say how many minuter did he play and whats his per 36 average... Edit 18 pts,12 rbs per 36 minutes... Thats nearly all star level, Magic!!!
Jiří Palásek
Zubac certainly played in series, in one game had 17+15 and Clips won that one. He had health issues and certainly was not elevated numberwise by LBJ, he had better numbers after trade...

The Lakers signed an old Lebron and now they are going to have to deal with him and his grumpy old man ways.

Magic say he not regretful, not a regretful person , yet through this series of videos he speaks to the contrary. And how do you learn and grow then? Youd think hed know that more then most, athletes in gen know better. Idk man this whole thing is shady . None of it adds up, that whole franchise done got pretty corrupt over the last decade. Always seem like everybody there lying.
straight shootah
I lost all respect for magic as soon as he disrespected zubac like he was some chump. Don't burn any bridges, you might want to get back in the game, you out here looking like a blamer and a chump. Take responsibility for your own shit.

The point about Randle si a lie you had the opportunity to match the offer of New Orleans, you just thought he was not value the try
trza49er Year ago
Wait wait wait, so you don't regret passing on De'Aaron Fox for Lonzo, after watching their lopsided matchup in the NCAA tourney and then seeing Fox definitively surpass Ball in terms of NBA success? If that's the case then you've proven yourself incapable of running an NBA team, and they're better off without you. Everyone makes mistakes, but if you can't be honest with yourself, you'll never learn from them.

Davis should negotiate a buyout with the Pelicans. They owe him $25 million on his final year. He should give back upwards of $20 million and they will make him a free agent. And, of course, he can more than recoup that money in a major market, ideally Lakers.

It's not about whether or not Magic is a regretful guy. It's about what he did right and what he did wrong. I think he is delusional.
