    Wow! He said Phil Jackson advises Jeanie Buss! Wow! How many low key decisions has Phil Jackson made since his departure? 🤔

    I don't care about the modern NBA. It's a joke. I do however care about respect. Lebron needs to do his job and not criticize his bosses. He is a player, not a manager, not an owner, not an executive. Just do your job Lebron.

    This raises a few issues. 1) Why do you have a GM and also a President of BB Operations? Who reports to who? You can't have two guys in charge; that's just a recipe for disaster with all the politics, backstabbing, etc. 2) Magic is a millionaire. He's not going to punch a clock from 9 to 5. He's not going to be someone's "employee" at this stage in his life. He doesn't need that; he's above that. He should never have taken the job if he wasn't absolutely in charge. 3)Why are some dude's wife and former players in the mix? This whole team is like a ship without a captain floundering around. What a mess.

    Bullshit!!! Magic, you and LEBron are better than that. Forget about basketball and just be a man about it. Your decision to leave is yours, but don't take it out on the players because your mad at management. Just communicate!!

    Max is right. My theory is Kobe is pulling strings behind the scenes to sabotage Lebron because he knows if Lebron wins a Championship in LA the Kobe Vs Lebron Conversation is over

    I hate to say this, but it's clear here that you can't have a woman with all their emotions do a man's job. If you peel back all the layers, Jeannie Buss is the source problem.

    Magic u just want lbj to b better than Jordan for reasons known. U want to build around lbj? NBA u want all stars to surround lbj so that went he wins the Gsw they will praise him for leaving the East to dethroned the Gsw lol process is clear for those who have 👀. All star game 2017/2018 he got surrounded with best stars just to win . Rigged NBA finals for him to win and the next season couldn’t even win Gsw . The swept in the finals was a clear fact the rigged a finals for him . Exaggerations. This is not how to fav our franchise players

    That lets you know how much respect Bron has for Magic. One could assume he wouldn’t have come to the Lakers if not for his involvement; the guy showed up to his house, alone, and got the job done.

    Damn it is refreshing to hear HONESTY... instead of political bullshit. Now that's leadership. Magic is of the age, reputation, and status where he has no fear of telling the truth. Basically he's in a position where he doesn't have to tolerate peons that feel threatened by him coming for his position. Fuk em.. Thank you Magic

      When Magic says he had to report to a guy named Tim is that Kobe in code? Max is just uncovering the rock to all the Lakers problems is Kobe. It's all so obvious that this Tim is Kobe whose in Jeanie Buss, You heard Phil Jackson too has Jeanie ear. Max knows Kobe been ruining the Lakers being in Jeanie ear is who Magic Johnson is really battling in his job to make decisions. Pelinka proxy Kobe. Linda and Kurt Rambis proxy Phil Jackson have power to make decisions Max knows it as does Magic and Lebron. Family mom and pop shop. Kobe be in the shadows so Max figured it out so that's a good detective like Colombo thclips.com/video/L-8h89rbBRY/วีดีโอ.html
