Just a compilation of sound bytes from Maginka at the training camp presser. There is no argument to be made. It is a foregone conclusion; they are delusional. They need to do some serious introspection in the off season, look in the mirror and concede that they are actually the main problem. I just cannot envisage the extent of damage which lies in stock for us. This season imho was just the tip of the iceberg. They are making the previous regime look like Fortune 500 executives. Somethings gotta give.

Anywhere here goes:

I’m still not convinced that Pelinka is a terrible GM yet. I think Magic is behind all of our bone headed moves. All. But if getting rid of Magic meant getting rid of Pelinka, then by all means. The signings and mid season fiascos have us a pretty clear read into our front office. These clips were absolutely jarring to watch.

I’m actually most impressed with the genius who hired them, immediately after firing the previous regime. Without any auditions, interviews, due diligence or pre-requisite job experience.

Actually in corporate parlance, the proverbial sh*t invariably falls down from the top

Zero accountability from top to bottom. When your owner is spouting "fake" news you know you're in terrible hands.

That “fake” news bs is both embarrassing and depressing at the same time.

They currently, have a 10% chance of landing a top 4 pick. The odds keep improving as they keep piling up those L’s. Lmao

Watch and cry. There is really no point blaming Magic and Pelinka, they didn’t force themselves out here...they were hired.

I’m really ready for an ownership change. Waiting for the day when Sam Kroenke /Guggenheim group takes over and gives it a professional structure and stability.

Remember Jerry saying after Dr. Buss funeral when asked if he was considering going back to Lakers, quote, Oh I don't think they would have me back. Maybe Dr. Buss told kids he didn't want him back with Lakers ever.

Jerry West was very much against Jeannie seeing Phil Jackson when he was the GM, cause he felt that was causing a major distraction in the locker room.

Rumors have it that she’s kept that grudge against him. Jerry West clearly wanted the lakers job, but Jeannie quickly brought in Magic even without auditioning anyone else. These bastards are screwing over the lakers because of their petty little egos. So pissed off..!!!

It was actually West who was screwed over by The late great Jerry Buss. Buss had promised West a sum of $1m if he was able to land Shaq.

Buss didn’t keep his word after Jerry managed to get Shaq. Jerry said in an interview, that he was really hurt not because of the money owed to him, but because it was a matter of principle that Buss didn’t keep his word. West is very old school and things like gentlemen’s honor/ word of mouth matter a lot to him. He was paid that amount much later on, but there was a breach of trust and that incident severed the relationship and he eventually ended up in Memphis.

Like I had mentioned on various threads, the laker player injuries seem to be a systemic issue which has not been addressed. Questionable medical/training staff and cutting corners on personnel spending. Giving job handouts to friends/family. Yes this is a bonafide mom/pop operation.

When you don't make smart decisions and you're a LOUD MOUTH. Doesn't bode well at all.
