    Holiday definitely has injury concerns, but worse contracts have been moved. If Julius opts into the final year of his contract there, they could attach him to Holiday and get them both moved in one deal..use the much cheaper Julius as a sweetener. Somebody's going to strike out in free agency and peruse the market for opportunities to make their team better..probably the Clippers. The Pels certainly won't have any use for Julius ( Zion lite) if they draft the actual Zion. Put it this way..would you sign 30 year old miniature Kemba Walker to a max deal or just trade for 29 yr old 2-way Holiday/25 yr old Julius? Holiday has 2 years left on his deal and then a player option to get what is likely his last contract. Mike Conley is 32 with one year left on his deal..if I'm the Grizz and I struggle to land top tier free agents, I'd jump on a Holiday/Julius package that sends Conley to a 3rd team. Or Conley just lands in N.O. for a season, until the trade deadline. There are ways. They may have to get creative, but there are ways. They may even think about stretch/waiving Holiday to cut cost. There are way for the Pels to rid themselves of Holiday and move on with a Garland.

    As for Garland, there's also speculation that PHX may have promised him @ #6. But even if LAL is looking to trade the pick to the Pels, it's a trade that'll have to be completed in July, so LAL will be selecting for the Pels on draft night. Which would just mean that the Pels are actually locked in on Garland and that's potentially the reason LAL has promised him - if they've promised him.

    Yeah, but it's breaking up after this season. The disease of " me ", as Riles put it. Durant looking for more individual cred and to prove more. I'd hate GSW more if they were beating the Lakers all these years.

    Maybe the Bucks will regroup and go ahead and finish this in 5? I didn't like that performance last night coming off a dominant Game 2. Role players tend to fade on the road, but the Bucks' role players played well last night. Which makes me feel like they'll fade next game and this will be 2-2 heading back

    Awwshit. Magic invading 1st Take today. Lmao

    Media spin today is that Pelinka can't land stars..or that he'll stand in the way of stars signing. Because he's never landed stars for a team before.

    Except Pelinka actually had his very own team before landing with the Lakers and Kobe, Harden and Durant were on it.

    It's this fuckin Rambis bunch that worries me..and Jeanie. Not Pelinka

    Magic out here talking about how he loves this franchise and always will, yet he's literally telling the world that Pelinka is a scumbag . That doesn't really bode well for the Lakers image or the ability to land free agents.

    Really nice job there, Magic.

    Loved Magic the player (slightly homo).

    Not too fond of Magic the coach, talk show host, front office slacker and now self-appointed spokesman for all things Laker.

    At this point, I just really hope Magic just disappears for awhile. It’s been a sh*tshow since his face has appeared in the FO.

    We already knew the story behind why he left anyway though. He really didn't uncover anything. Just another TV spot, but it's Lakers, so it's headlining news for social media to eat up. More NBA drama. It's still up to LeBron to recruit and land a co-star..AD/2020 at the latest

    He'll recruit AD and more likely he'll settle for JR..........Smith, that is.

    I don't know man... his answers seem to be on point to me. I haven't watched the whole thing though.
    He admits the worst mistake was not resigning Brook Lopez and therefore not having enough shooting to space the floor for LeBron.
    His response to the Zubac trade is pure truth as well.
    He is a RFA who was going to be offered a contract the Lakers had no reason to match with salary space at a premium.
    Zubac was already in firewood pile so burning him for a shot at a stretch 'big' to try and correct not signing Lopez was a move that could be made.
    Not signing Lopez forced the Lakers to keep KCP and then reach on Bullock and Muscala.
    Randle was never in the cards as he was not going to settle for a 1 year deal.
    Randle was not thrilled to play ball and be on the team as the backup PF/C on a 1 year deal.
    That lower usage would kill the value he thought he had earned down the stretch.
    Randle wanted the minutes he would get in NO.
    He feels he was backstabbed by the guy he was holding the seat for. Pelinkobe.
    Yet he knows that Pelinkobe needs to be at the table when recruiting FA along with Jeannie, Vogel, and LeBron.
    He made it obvious yet again that while the backstabber was Pelinkobe the actual enemy is Kurt and Linda Rambis who are part of dirty uncle Phils and Waltons hippie swinger polyamorous club.
    Magic and Kobe are fighting a posterity type battle but on a larger scale they are on the same side against the Phil Jackson plague that has ruined the post playing careers of once proud Laker role players like Kurt Rambis, Derek Fisher, and i'm sure others.
    Is this cult like a gang where every new member has to get jumped in by Jeannie and Phil?
    Magic probably remembers how this shit all went down when he was part of it with ol' freak dr Buss in the 80's.
    So he knows this is not going to turn out well unless they get the Rambis family out of the control room.

    But if you're trying to help the team, you STFU about the back office politics.

    If you're trying to make it about you and what a great business man you think you are, you air the dirty laundry.

    Shit, who gets pissed about being called out for not working hard enough? Only guys who aren't working hard enough.

    Well all know magic is an idiot with a big smile and incredible vision on a basketball court. He fails at everything that requires more than smiling and dropping dimes.

    He's also taken credit for so many other people's moves while being called brilliant.

    Pelinkobe is a snake remember that.
    You have a Black Mamba hiding behind the scenes.
    But a White Mamba in the front office.
    When the Magic man was put in charge to clean up the Playgirls garden he notified her that she had a snake in the grass.
    What he didn't know is that he also had a couple of horny rams dressed as furry lambs.
    So since the snake does what it does and the rams do what they do then the magic will do what it does an put on a show.
    Magic is taking home the slumpbuster, jumping on the grenade, taking one for the team.
    The magic show is for the media and for now even most fans but the intended audience are the players and their agents as well as other teams front offices.
    The Twin Headed Black and White Mamba Snake is facing off against the Pyramidal Dragon centered around Uncle Phil/Jeannies heart, The Waltons/Establishment, and their associated succubii Rambii.
    Magic setting up the show.

    You are an idiot if you hire Magic Johnson to a position you expect an employee to be in.
    Even a highly paid executive employee. He was not there to put up with those office politics in the first place.
    Specially since you essentially grew up with him and probably lost your....
    I mean if anyone other than Cookie knows Magic better its probably his 'sister'.
    You know this how sister/brother thing has me thinking in light of his other things he keeps repeating.
    He is telling us that Jeannie is like his sister in the same way that Jim Buss was Jeannie's sister.
    He is remind you a little bit about who this family really is and how they do their own.
    So if Magic is an idiot then everyone else in the organization that was involved with asking him to come help the team is clinically retarded.

    Magic knows that he looks bad in these interviews. He doesn't care.
    The Lakers look good. And that is what he cares about.
    This allows them to sweep the rug, regroup, start over clean with Vogel, and have Magic be the fall guy.
    Magic is closing up all the lose ends so it can be all positive from here.
    Unless the Rambii infection can't be contained.
