There is NO way to make this not sound as if I’m SEXIST-but I know the fellas understand me. U cannot have a woman making head basketball decisions in the NBA due to the fact that they are “emotional” decisions. Jeanie is a cool woman but let’s look at it-she used to date one of the greatest coaches ever-now Kurt Rambis is trying to ingratiate his way back into the Lakers good gracious. I guarantee, if Magic was given COMPLETE control as he had mentioned, we may have seen a different result (given LeBrons health)

Magic isn’t about to back-out in the corner for anybody. Idk why I’m the only brotha who thinks another grown man does NOT have to explain why he made a decision that is beneficial to him (w/o truly harming anyone). LeBron is grown, made his own decision to come to LA, got the bag & he’s building his universe just like Magic has done for years. Bron’ isn’t going to explain to anyone why he’s left Cleveland or how he moves-no love lost it’s just that simple. We’re all grown

I think people sometimes forget that Magic Johnson takes strong 💪 medication like myself. I'm not making excuses for Magic but when the medication side effects cause you to sit on the toilet for hours with the worst cramps and bowel movements 24/7. Thats with all the HIV medication. So running his own company and have his side gig with the Lakers plus balancing his health is hard. Science keeps us alive but there is always a price to pay👍

Rob is seemingly the one given the power. He has already showed his true colors. Rob is your typical ego driven, Hierarcal power hungry Executive who only cares about himself. Versus, Magic who has only love, goodwill, and wants to create a team that succeeds. Magic makes alot more money with his numerous business dealings. Magic does NOT need to deal with political corporate snakes or want to. Congrats Magic! You are too classy to be part of that nonsense

4 decade Lakers fan here. LeBron + Magic + Ty would have been incredible. Maybe get KD or Kyrie or another super talented free agent and we’d be back. Now it’s just a cluster. That Rob guy seems slimy like most agent types. Shame about these billionaire owners uggh.

Magic's basic defense rests on his need to make every decision, and if he doesn't get his way on anything, he doesn't own the results. That is flat out wrong. Imagine if our military worked like that? Nobody would be accountable for anything. Magic is living in a world where he has not been responsible for outcomes, ever since he took off the jersey. He will always find a way to weasel out of a mistake.

What a MITCH as SNITCH!! Gotta get them STITCHES!! I no longer respect "magic" he thinks this is cool... this actually will hurt the lakers chances of getting ANYONE this summer. How do you take a job when you dont guve 💯⁉️⁉️. And you leave because it wasn't FUN anymore ⁉️⁉️. Woj said it best.. this is a testament of YOUR failings bro. I hope if the lakers ever sell the team, you DON'T become part owner. You MITCH ASS SNITCH!!!

My takeaways from this interview: 1. Magic Johnson is a happy man. He makes a lot of money from numerous business outside of Lakers. 2. One of the reason he signed on for the job was because it was promised he doesn't have to invest 100% into it. 3. Lebron joins Lakers. Whole organization's goal suddenly becomes championship contention. Which takes a lot of work. 4. Magic keeps not being100% invested. And now Magic wants to fire the coach, who is most likely more invested than Magic does. 5. Corporate backstabbing, which probably all of us faces sometime in our job/career. It hurts Magic's feelings. 6. He quit. Hoping everyone forgets he drafted Lonzo Ball. he also killed all team chemistry when he tried to trade the whole team for Anthony Davis.
