  • spittfyre365

    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

    Three positives taken from this interview: Max could be a real journalist, if he pursued it; Magic is an incredibly polished CEO-level communicator; and Molly is actually tolerable when she raises her game, knows when to be quiet, and sticks to the topic.

    Magic is wrong about the LeBron. He can't admit or apologize for who he did LeBron. He was wrong! He know is should have called LeBron. Like he never wrong. I dont like that about Magic.. and still can't say anything but he stand on what he did

    Rob is hitting Jeanie on the low, there is no way this dude did all this stuff and Jeanie kept him around. Jeanie has to stop mixing business with her heart for real. There is no way she did this to magic without something more involved.

    Rob, just don’t want a black guy to be on top of him, he just don’t respect magic base on his race .ugly mf

    Max blames Kobe...AGAIN? "Linda Rambis, Kurt Rambis, Rob Pelinka, and some guy named Tim, and we have Jeannie:"All those names are names Magic mentioned as having an integral part in his decision TO LEAVE. Max hears KOBE somehow, and goes on a rant to link Kobe to the backstabbing and power of Pelinka to somehow one day own the Lakers??? If Pelinka is as crooked as everyone says, he wouldn't even turn it over to Kobe, and I don't think any businessman like Kobe would orchestrate something in HOPES and FAITH that a crooked man would keep his word. Somehow Max still feels Kobe's to blame.


    I didn’t know Magic knew how to dance so well 🤔
