Lakers News:

 ▷ Bill Simmons talks Magic Johnson on Jimmy Kimmel Live

“I’m not sure how these facts will benefit your life, and it’s not my place to ask. All I do know is that I personally feel that they have enriched my life. Thank you, Bill Simmons.”

‘WTF’ NBA headline of the day:

▷ NBA fan declares for the draft ‘after a few drinks,’ receives an encouraging reply from the league

“The NCAA deadline to declare for the NBA draft is on April 16. Because the NBA has its own deadline (rendering the NCAA’s toothless) of April 28, and because an anonymous Reddit poster didn’t actually play basketball in the NCAA last (or any other) year, one particular potential draftee decided to slide his declaration in just before the NBA’s target date.”

Controversial NBA headline of the day:

▷ Winners, losers from Friday’s NBA action

“As a literal matter, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs were the only true winners on a remarkably entertaining Friday night of NBA playoff action, winning their respective games by matching 10-point margins. The Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors, obviously, were the losers.”

Did you know:

Magic Johnson actually coached the Lakers in 1994-95, he had a record of 5-11. His team finished on a ten-game losing streak.

Gail Goodrich fact of the day:

He was nicknamed “Stumpy” by Elgin Baylor because he was a little over 6 feet.

Quote of the day:

“These young guys are playing checkers. I’m out there playing chess.” – Kobe Bryant
