I wonder if I drove a fortune five hundred company into the shit hole then quit right before being fired and blamed it on office gossip if everyone would believe me to.

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

Stephen A Smith the type of mofucka to give you hella compliments right before he rips you a new asshole for no reason: "Now I've known D-Wade for 25 years. He is a dear friend of mine, In fact, he's like a brother to me. True story, we came out the womb together. He's a hell of a basketball players but an even exemplary human being. He is the consummate professional. We're talking about a man who's a quintessential superstar in his own right and one of THE premier savants this game has ever seen. With that being said Max, I personally think he's a bitch. His breath stinks and I heard he sits down to pee. Quite frankly, a few sources close to me have told me he moans every time he wipes his ass, He has noooooo business being in the discussion for MVP whatsoever! It's asinine. It's derisory and downright injudicious" 🤬🤬

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.

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.

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!!!

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...

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.

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 3 months 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.
