    What are your thoughts on Magic Johnson's comments?

      I think that everyone seems to be foregetting the other part of Magic's stint with the Lakers. Maybe he WAS up front about how little time he would be devoting to his job, but he ALSO seemed to still expect to be the one making the decisions. That little bit seems to be being neglected in today's "defend Magic" narrative.

      Just thinking about that super sour face Magic used to make when a call went against him. Go look at some vintage photos. His comments reminded of that.

      Well it only confirmed what everybody was so many words Magic was being absolutely transparent...and tellin' players, to Chris' point, to read between the lines.....if you want to play for the Lakers or any team for that matter, look at the owner and the front office......but Donald Sterling should've taught them that.....

      Magic is two-faced and that's nothing new. He's always been about big smiles and loud celebrations to cover up his all consuming ego. Says one thing about wanting to support the Lakers, does another thing to sabotage them. It begins with Jeannie hiring him to do a job that brought out his incompetence; he followed the "Peter principle." They should've left him on the court and out of the office.

      🤔🤭 this will never happen but if KD was tripping he would go to the Lakers and win 3 🏆in 3 years 😂 but I think he should stay with the warriors and go for 6 or 7 🏆 they would be considered the GOAT dynasty

    Owning or running a professional NBA franchise is like running a publicly traded company. Everyone can measure your success on a daily basis and compare it to others. It’s easy to fake success with private companies, just ask Donald Trump. I don’t think we should automatically assume Magic is good at business just bc he had the cash and an investor group to buy a bunch of franchises. I’m holding out judgement until I see his profitability compared to other Starbucks locations and comparable theaters.

    what is the Magic actual time with Lakers. If less then 10% of his time I understand Pelinka's complaints. If Obama spent 90% of his time with other stuff and spent 10% of his time as president of the US , there is a problem there.

    Asking "Where is Magic?" is not back stabbing, Ervin. It's a 1000% valid question regarding the GM of a once great franchise. Who actually runs Magic's empire? Must be someone else. He seems to have the intellectual capacity of casino greeter not a CEO.

    I get the defense of Magic Johnson. I've been hearing all day about how honest he was with Jeanie Buss about how little time he'd be spending there, that he's a busy man, etc. There's just one problem: These defenses neglect to mention the fact that Magic still seemed to believe that even though he was an absentee executive, he should still be the one making the decisions.

  • MrKeysjimmy

    Do u really think chris brousard blazers are better than rockets ??

  • Sol_$@intGee

    I CAN'T LIE...I THINK CHRIS BROUSSARD IS USING A BRILLIANT "MANIPULATIVE" TACTIC TO GET K.D. TO JOIN THE KNICKS. He keeps saying the same things like it's a "go2NY" Mantra. "The warriors don't need K.D., he's a luxury!" "If they win without him, then he's gotta get out a there!" "Kevin's worst nightmare, is coming true!" "He should just go to New York and lead his own team. " ....K.D. is sadly the most sensitive superstar I've ever seen. He is taking the bait without question. And if K.D. does join the KNICKS during the offseason...then Chris BROUSSARD should take a bow, and receive a round of applause. Fascinating....🤔

    Here's something to think about...if Lebron went to the Warriors they would lose, so KD is a better fit because they still win.

    Magic should have fired Luke and Rob and told Jeannie after the fact what he had done as President of Basketball operations. It is likely she would have done nothing but look at him and move on to the next thing. Doing so would have been better than this. When someone gives you the title and you do not need the money, then you act like you have all the power that comes with the job. Magic should have used the title to assume the power he wanted. A senior manager once said that if a certain manager needed to ask him for approval then that manager was not ready for a promotion.

  • John Black

    Lakers should sell the team and LeBron should trade himself out of there. Jeannie Buss is the problem.

  • samslick90

    Magic was Polinka's boss. If Polinka was backstabbing, Magic could fire him

    Jeanie sees Kawhi would be the best fit for the Lakers, not LeBron. that's why She is considering trading LeBron. LeBron is old now and Kawhi is on his Prime now and would give Lakers more championships. She was disappointed with Magic because he was the one recruiting LeBron and not considering Kawhi who wants to be a Laker...

  • About Time
    About Time

    It is really apparent that Magic cannot be trusted. Why would he go full frontal and blast the Laker's organization like this ? The answer: He wants to create such instability that Jeanie Buss and the other owners will want to sell and walk. Magic is getting older and he and his henchmen are pushing the time table forward to get their paws on the Lakers. It is one of the most valuable sports empires in the world. Watch for Kobe and LeBron to get in on the action as well.

  • MrScans1

    I was thinking the same thing about Magic, he's a business man first. So how is he incompetent with a position for a company? The waters are murky in L.A. I think he was hired for mass appeal. She never intended to give him the keys.

    Chris Broussard never shares the following scenario with us: Kevin Durant goes to New York Knicks. Kawhi goes to the Clippers. LeBron gets no major free agent. Meanwhile, the Warriors go to a sixth straight finals against either Miwaukee or Philiadelphia. What will that do to Durant's legacy? They'll start making comparisons between LeBron's Lakers and Durant's Knicks. And will superstars want to "join" KD and help him win?

  • Master

    When I disagree with Colin, it means he's wrong 100% of the time. Magic was being calculated. Nothing he said is going to entice free agents (or anyone else) to the Lakers and he knows it. Who wants to play for a backstabbing GM (or whatever Pelinka's title is)?

    I have a question about something I've noticed. Everyone or most people say or think Chris B. is the media GOAT. But when he says something positive no matter what about Lebron James everyone calls him a hack and says he is a "Bronsexual" and side with people like Jason Whitlock or Skip Bayless. Why is that?

    I agree with you on Steph Curry ask your listeners how come KD couldn't beat Stephen Curry when he was W/ Thunders.and somehow every time the other team had somebody HURT they make an excuse for Golden State beating them but when golden state has players out like Draymond Green in that 2015 final and a couple of the other players was injured Steph Curry is ridiculed. Steph Curry is not the best player he's the best team player. when players leave the Golden State Warriors don't you see that they BECOME insignificant W/ THERE other teams. the biggest THING that Stephen Curry does besides his shooting is his movement around the court people chasing him. opens up the court so his other players has easy shots and I'm sorry he's not the only one on the team that does it Thompson does the exact same thing too. if KD leaves the Warriors he will never win another championship

      As for not winning anything without pip, what magic winning without Kareem or worthy, bird without Parrish and McHale, lebron without kyrie, wade, Bosh and love. No player in the history of nba has won 2 or more rings without another hof teammate. Hakeem won 1 without hof teammate.

    • brads armpitt

      Which big 3? Lakers were in a different conference so he not playing them in playoffs, didn't play celtics again in the playoffs after he lost to them. As for pistons how were they old when dumars, Thomas and Rodman were under 30, they were number 1 defensive team, 2 time defending Champs and had 3 guys selected for the all star team that year although Thomas didn't play due to injury during all star weekend. And if Rodman was old when Jordan beat them, he was same age as isiah, then why is it he miraculously wasn't old when he joined bulls 5 years after he got "old".

    The media is talking down on the lakers right now, but next season when they win the west and have no changes to the “stability” of the franchise, Colin and Chris will be talking about how well the organization is run. In my opinion the turmoil inside the head office is exaggerated and Magic gets a pass cause no one has the balls to say he was a part time president. Also come on if the guy was a truly in it with the Lakers he would have waited till Rob Pelinka was out before scolding him. You think that really does any good to the lakers?

      @Morris Whitaker Replacing Lonzo Ball with a point guard that flourishes in the role of OFF-THE-BALL shot maker creates better TEAM CHEMISTRY with Lebron James. 😀😀😀 A point guard with the mentality of a 2-Guard fits Lebron James better than Lonzo Ball's THROWBACK-STYLE. What most Lakers fail to realize is that Magic Johnson's career average was still 19 points.😀😀😀 Being a Pass 1st point guard doesn't mean you get a FREE PASS to not score in double-digits.

    Let’s quit diminishing KD’s rings. Yes GS did it without him and they play great without him but we can’t have it both ways. These sports analysts will criticize a player for not having a ring but if that same player gets one all of a sudden it’s open to all kinds of scrutiny. If that’s the case we can scrutinize D Wade. He needed Shaq and LeBron to come to Miami to win a ring. Let’s be honest, he would be ringless if they hadn’t come. Wade never even reached a conference final without either of those two but nobody wants bring that fact up...
