Magic Johnson Says Rob Pelinka Betrayed Him…

via First Take

By: Julio Olmo

I knew Magic was going to bring that “smoke” with him and he came to kick ass, but he also brought a list names with him.

“I wasn’t having fun coming to work anymore,…especially when I gotta work beside [Pelinka], knowing that you want my position…If you want to elevate yourself, I’m all for that,” Magic Johnson…

“But there’s a way to get that, and it’s not talking about the person that’s above you…I didn’t like those things [Pelinka] was saying behind my back, that I wasn’t in the office enough…So I started getting calls from my friends outside of basketball saying those things now were said to them. … Not just in the Lakers, into the media and so on.”


Just to summarize some of Magic Johnson’s key points during his recent interview;

  • Rob Pelinka is a backstabbing weasel,

  • Jeanie Buss can’t make a single decision,

  • Tim Harris needs to mind his own business,

  • And…

  • It will be a cold day in hell before the Los Angeles Lakers trade LeBron James,




Everyone loves the circus, except the guys that have to clean up afterwards.
