Clippers have been sending their high level FO people to Kawhii games this year. that isn't tampering?

Without injuries to key personnel and this team still being in 4th place, or maybe in 3rd, we aren't even having this conversation in here.

Next season we acquire Kyrie and compete for a title, again.. we aren't having this conversation.

I think we are a bit reactive in here at times.


Kyrie will not get us a title. Not only will he add to our injured personel, but he won't play well along side Lonzo or Rondo (if he's still here).

It's cannibalism week in the Lounge. Haven't you heard? We have to eat our own.
The regular season ended after 58 games this year. For some reason. So now there is no hope and all that's left to do is blame people and say I told you so.


And some have brought their own hot sauce to the table.

I said this yesterday. Get a max FA (KD, Klay, Butler, Walker, Kyrie) and a real NBA coach and not a beach volleyball coach, and give me our team next year.

Lebron, second max talent, plus improving Kuzma, Ingram, Ball, Hart, Wagner, potential lottery pick this year, plus whatever add ons you can get in the market with your cap space and MLE. I'd take that team. You also have assets for potential deals.

They were granted two summers. If they whiff and resign Lance Stephenson and Rondo, go ahead and rip em. I'll judge what they have next year.

Don't change what I wrote. I said hopefully we have a new FO by then. Why not just respond to what I said, with what you acted like I said? I'm a Laker fan 1st is why I said what I said. I want banners, but I also don't feel this FO isn't right. Now, this FO can change for the better and we can win banners, this year even, but I don't see magic changing his talkative, egotistical, wanting to be in the spotlight self and not knowing how to run bball op. Reminds me light weight of Phil in new york. Magic gotta go, just as well as Luke gotta go, until further notice.

LG chicken littles keep whining, meanwhile players across the league are tripping over themselves to hang out with Magic. The sky isn't falling as fast as some people on this board would like to claim.


Sounds like me. LOL! I admit I can be a chicken little at times. I just can't stand inefficient basketball players, and I think you can judge the front office in the same way. Like MJ and James Harden can both arrive at 50 pts, but one guy's statline will be something like this.. 8-18 from twos, 7-22 from threes, 13-15 free throws. That's what it looks like most the time for James Harden to get 50. That's a nice check list of what Maginka has in place, but have they been efficient getting here? No, there has been unnecessary losses. I'm just in a pissy mood right now cause I was very bullish on Ivica. On top of Randle, it's just mindboggling to me. Don't view Julius as a guy who doesn't fit in or whatever and are not in our future plans. I don't look at it that way, I look at him as a #7 pick asset. How did you not get anything for it? Zubac for Muscala is just mind numbing considering you had Brook and decided to go after the likes of Beasley whom you just also dumped. Now you waste another prospect to get back, essentially Brook again, but this guy is not as good as Brook. Brolo could stretch but also played pretty good position D in the post on big guys. They have been INEFFICIENT.

Exactly. False narratives stay getting thrown around to justify the premature move by maginka.

For me, I am def. still riding the fence on the current front office.. They have had some EXTREMELY frustrating moves and some great ones.. It all comes down to the 2019 free agency market imo.. If they land another max while keeping the core intact then all the "frustrating" moves are completely vindicated.. If they strike out then they will deserve every bit of criticism they get since we lost so much to offer up that second max this last off season and again this upcoming off season. It's a bit frustrating right now but i'm still holding out hope this can all turn out beautifully in the longer run especially after not gutting out entire team for AD.

Letting Julius Randle walk in exchange for nothing? Check.

Not realizing you can sign quality players to longer than one year deals then trade them if need be, rather than signing everyone to one year deals and praying free agents come? Check.

Offering most of your young talent for one player and then getting publicly clowned by the Pelicans? Check.

Ruining team chemistry because you bold face lied to your young talent? Check.

Having your desperation put out there for the world to see and becoming the talking point of the league for all the wrong reasons again? Check.

Prioritizing playmakers instead of shooters in the off-season? Check.

Losing out on a 20/10/3 24 year old and a 22 year old that just became an all-star cause you undervalued talent? Check.

Being investigated for tampering again because you couldn't keep your mouth shut? Check.

LOL although I've had a few reservations about Magic's tenure in the FO, it's pretty hard to argue with this.


You guys act like trying to trade the entire team before free agency played out didn't happen.

Of course we'd be fine if they didn't do that.

We are only where we are by the grace of the God that made New Orleans more stupid and petty than Maginka was desperate.

If we survive the summer without losing everything... then I will publicly apologize for doubting them.

Magic is slowly getting rid of all our young talent. DLO, Randle, Bryant, Zu, Svi, and he tried trading every single young player we have - Zo, BI, Kuzma, and Hart. I don't think we are surviving the summer, unless we win a championship.

I guess they don’t have enough cap room to sign a max player now. We should ignore that

Magic was fined for tampering with PG's agent. So they were working together to get PG to LA. PG's agent also represented DLO and Randle. So why did Magic criticize DLO right after the trade? That was so pointless, and then there were tensions regarding Randle at the start of the season. Fast forward to the summer, Mintz is supposedly anti-Laker all of a sudden and wouldn't even advice PG 13 to meet Magic the closer. I wouldn't say that's the best way to build relationship with an agent who represents a player like PG 13 by an FO. From PG's documentary, it also felt like they were more like brothers and his agent had a huge say in his career decisions.

Yeah, I don't get why more aren't worried.

That trade info leak was more of a red giant curtain than a red flag.

Hopefully they are reconsidering... but moving Zu didn't exactly instill confidence that they've veered from their course.

THIS IS THE BEST F'ING POST I HAVE READ HERE IN A VERY LONG TIME!!!!


Gaaaangsta!!! So right. I think a lot of my beef, personally, comes from low self esteem and empathy for others who might feel the same. The bottom line of it though is as this says. Wish I could stop being a wuss and see things like this so clearly.
