Lakers Podcast: Has the Magic Johnson hire been a failure so far?

The introductory media tour does not appear to be going well for the new king of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Lakers essentially didn’t show up for their last game before the NBA All-Star break, but even their blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns has been less of a botched debacle so far than Magic Johnson’s publicity tour since re-joining the Lakers as an advisor to Jeanie Buss. After talking about the game and D’Angelo Russell’s minutes for a bit, Harrison and Anthony discussed what they think the problems have been with Johnson’s mixed messages and the timing of his whole whirlwind...

Lakers vs. Suns Final Score: Lakers get embarrassed in 137-101 loss in Phoenix

It’s getting darker by the loss for the Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers looked like a collective of dispirited basketball players ready to take a nine-day sabbatical in an ugly 137-101 loss to the Phoenix Suns. This was out of hand from the jump as the Lakers failed to score, defend or do just about anything right on the basketball court through the opening minutes. That trend carried on throughout the game, with Eric Bledsoe taking advantage of the easy prey the Lakers were. They were wounded and stranded in the Arizona desert, and Bledsoe picked their carcass clean for a triple-double....

Final Score: Suns blast Lakers, 137-102 ALL THE DUNKS AND BLOCKS

Tonight, the Suns did to the Lakers what the Rockets did to the Suns just a few days ago. The game was effectively over in the first quarter, with the Suns going up 25-6 before the Lakers could think straight and the Suns finished with a season-high in points. The Suns got up by 21 in the first quarter, by 30 in the third and cruised to a season-best win over the still-rival-but-doesn’t-look-like-it Los Angeles Lakers. Eric Bledsoe tied a season high with 13 assists and came just two rebounds shy of a triple double before the end of the third quarter. Devin Booker began the game with 18...
