I love Magic, and dislike Rob, but what Magic is describing is not backstabbing.

If you had a co-worker who sleeps on the job, and you know that you would get blamed for anything going wrong, you would tell your boss about it. If not for covering your own a$$, then for the good of the organization.

“Had to trade Russell because of swaggy p”

Come on now really?

I was semi ok with the trade but is this really the reason why we traded him? Glad magic is not part of the FO then

So magic got mad that someone called him out for not working hard enough

Nothing new here

Obviously we know he’s still cool with the king, King has shown him nothing but love from the start
Stop being so disrespectful.

Ill give Rob a chance. He has handled the media pretty well especially with Crybaby Johnson ripping the Lakers and Rob apart. I can’t believe after all that **** he said he goes, “I’m a Lakers fan” FOH with that BS...moron...

Here's where the Lakers keep messing up in my opinion. They continue to surround our young guys with questionable attitudes/ leadership abilities.

Swaggy P
Rondo
Beasley
Lance

They need to bring in guys that have a reputation of being good locker room, high charcter guys.

This has definitely been a major frustration of mine. Rondo and KCP in particular quit even trying to play defense for this team after the trade rumors. It’s not even like those guys are talented enough to justify the nonsense they bring with them.
Numbers rule the universe.

I always thought Magic was always supposed to be the one that comes in after all the hard work gets done with his massive smile and swagger, and then takes all the credit.

He was the front man. That was it.

Pretty much my sentiment. I have zero respect for Magic. It's almost seems as if he's intentionally trying to harm the Lakers.

The more I watch the interview the more double talk I see. The level of bull **** is staggering. He's like a child.

What a bitter, manipulative, front stabbing bitch. Screw you Earvin Johnson. I love Magic but **** Earvin Johnson.

It’s the WCFs and this is the top trending news story in North America. That just shows you the popularity of the Lakers.
