      The reality of this is ESPN is pretty much taking Magic at his word. That's not what they are supposed to be doing so right away this thing is spun to his favor. The reality is that people will only state their 'side' of the story. Regardless Magic fucked up by doing a press conference before giving notice to Jeanie Buss. That's Magic acting out like a spoiled entitled little bitch. Well let's all welcome Magic to the internet as shit flys BOTH ways my man. Get ready to take it in the face.

        I love how Stephen A killed Phil Jackson for all the shitty player roster decisions he made for the Knicks, but Magic who was equally incompetent, or worse, in his tenure as the president of basketball operation gets a pass. Hmm....

          I know superstar basketball players are good at playing basketball and need a certain amount of physical acumen, I didn't realize it takes business savvy or intellect.

                                Magic Johnson needs to come on back Michael Jordan has went through a lot with his team but you didn't see him give up because Jordan still has a lot of fight in him and so does Magic Johnson he is not a losser he has always been a winner it's not his fault your super stars of the team had injuries the Lakers will be back and they are coming back with vengeance when they were healthy they were very Dangerous team when you have a lot of injuries that can really hurt the team.

                                  When Lakers owner the late Dr Jerry Buss first met Magic Johnson in the summer of 1979, he instantly took a liking to Magic especially when Magic led the Lakers to the NBA title in 1980.

                                  Buss told anyone who would listen to him that Magic was like a son to him. He even started taking Magic to the Playboy Mansion for orgies with the honies because Magic did not drink or smoke weed so his vice was women and there were loads of women lining up to sleep with Magic at every turn.

                                  Buss also suggested to Magic that he leave his then GF now wife Cookie back home in Michigan because Buss didn't want Cookie knowing what Magic was doing.

                                  Fast forward to Magic's retiring and he asked Buss to allow him to buy a piece of the Lakers and Buss said uh oh no Magic can't do that.

                                                I love Magic as a basketball player he was fun to watch, but he proved to be HORRIBLE as a basketball executive. Betrayed? He (Magic) should have been fired when he mishandled Laker Money, $150+ million dollars to get Lebonese Menstral Cramps LaBUM James. Magic and the Laker Money would have been better off going up the highway to Las Vegas and putting that $150+ million dollars in a slot machine, he would have gotten more return on Laker Money. Why would you spend that kind of money for a basketball player who just got SWEPT in the NBA Finals? He should never be allowed on or near an executive office, coaching, or even a slam-dunk contest ever as long as he lives. TRADE LaBUM MENSTRAL CRAMPS James and TRADE LaBUMzo!

                                                  True True magic. You choose a James who cannot win a game without others. I will never watch another game.
