The FO next obstacle is finding a way to find a trade partner for Deng/Clarkson, that's not to say those 2 guys can't be apart of a winning team but if you want to build this super cap space then there needs to be sacifirice changes to the team.. Lakers off season grade right now is A+ if they find a way to clear the books of Dengs and Clarkson deal then this off season becomes a A+++

In less than on year under Magic we have a summer league banner in the rafters to humiliate Clippers fans.

Substance rules over BS

There is an official P&M thread where you can direct your negativity towards the legendary Magic Johnson.

There are also truths and there is hype, you can choose. And if you think I said anything negative about Magic you need to read it again.

Rob Pelinka Discusses Expectations For Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart This Season

Quote:
The Los Angeles Lakers new front office, led by president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka did a solid job of acquiring late first round picks before the deep 2017 NBA draft, and they ultimately used those picks to select two guys who went to college for four years, Kyle Kuzma out of Utah and Josh Hart from Villanova.

Because of their age and maturity the Lakers are hopeful that both players can come in and make an impact right away, as opposed to some of the one-and-done guys in the draft who may need some more development before contributing at the NBA level.

Careful. The Dodgers may be looking for some payback this year on your Cards.

What the Dodgers are doing this season is historic, hopefully they close it out with a World Series win but even if not this season is going to be remembered for a while.

*Worth mentioning again:

Magic Johnson takes responsibility for Lakers' $500K fine: 'It's under my watch


Quote:
Days after the Los Angeles Lakers were issued a $500,000 fine by the NBA for violating the league's anti-tampering rules, Magic Johnson says he wants the six-figure sum to come out of his pocket.

ďWe canít say a lot but we will correct the situation,Ē Johnson told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. ďItís under my watch. I apologize to (team owner) Jeanie (Buss), and that was the main thing. I told her she could take it out of my salary because I donít want the Lakers to be paying that fine. Ö I donít want her spending $500,000, because she didnít do anything. Thatís on me.Ē

Somehow I missed this one. I am not worried, my Cards are going nowhere.

Really great, measured comments from Magic here. At least for the first few minutes in that I've heard so far. Glad to hear that he's not judging this team based on whether or not they make the playoffs.

Who would have thought then, we'd be where the Dodgers are now? Crazy.
