            What is funny is that it’s the Lakers, one of the most prolific sports franchises ever.......MAGIC of the greatest athletes ever......and it’s all just collapsing because of Jeanie Buss. A trust fund senior citizen that couldn’t run a AA baseball team competently if her life depended on it

              I know Magic Johnson is not doing some stuff for no reason. Maybe he knows they are going to lose LOL and don't want to get beat down against Golden State because Lebron James has no prayer of winning against GSW in the next 5 years, sorry man it is what it is and I don't care who you get to help Lebron James and how many players you give him. These boys can pop them nets at GSW.

                            Truthfully do you want to spend time figuring out why Magic quit. He's a basketball executive and nobody but some bored person really cares. With all our individual problem who cares if a executive quits retires lays stays or prays.

                                    He was a great player but, not all in as a coach and a horribly lazy president of operations.i love magic but the Lakers will be better off....

                                      No he wasn't, let the man live his life. He drafted Lonzo and recruited LeBron, it was good in theory. If he would have drafted Tatum and held out one or two more years for a real superstar like Kawhi or David we'd be calling him a genius. He make a calculated risk,. Like going all in with Ace-King suited in a heads up poker hand.

                                            There are two things at play there. First, Magic cannot lead grown men off the court. It's that simple. He has failed mightily as a coach and as an NBA executive, while Larry Bird - who's far more capable and competent - has thrived. I know Magic has his side businesses, but others are responsible for their operations - not Magic. Second, Shannon nailed it when he said that Magic projects himself onto others too much. This is the reason why many - not all - Hall of Fame athletes in all sports often fail as coaches, GMs, and executives. They cannot understand why others cannot play the way "they did". Rather than teach, tutor, and mentor, they scold, belittle, and criticize - like they did when they were players.

                                                  Im happy Luke is gone, Luke was a disaster as coach and Magic rightfully wanted him fired as soon as he took the job or at least wanted him to beef up his scrub assistants but Luke was non cooperative. Luke is not a motivator! Whenever i listened to him talk i heard waves crashing against the manhattan beach shore. He was always day dreaming about playing volleyball. Lets push for a master motivator for coach, Doc is settled in but i love his assistant Sam Cassell if we can get him as head assistant, and i love Michael Cooper as defensive assistant (he won two wnba championships and someone you listen to). If we can get those guys, id be ok with Ty Lue as head coach.

But its a mess and its time for Lebron to go back to Pat and Wade in Miami. Wade will play another year,once Lebron arrives. Make it happen.

                                                                                      I mean, I think the biggest issue was Luke Walton. Given the success that Randle, Lou Will and others found elsewhere, that tells me that the GM found the talent, but the coach couldn't bring it out or maximize it. I'm not a Magic fan, but I feel that when a bunch of players are traded off and then flourish elsewhere, that's more of a knock against the coach than the GM. The GM finds the talent, the coach should develop and maximize it. I'm not sure where all the hype came with Luke Walton to start with.
