The story from the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss:
The Los Angeles Lakers are facing dysfunction much like they did in LeBron James’ first year!
Not to steal Magic Johnson’s thunder, but the Los Angeles Lakers fanbase deserve a lot better than what they are getting. While he is talking about the effort on the floor, Lake Show Life is talking about the front office. Like the arrogance of the front office all the way up to Ms. Jeanie Buss is getting to the point of insulting.
Like who are they kidding?
Anthony Davis was in no danger of playing in this game and even if he did it just adds to the narrative of the front office looking to get rid of Frank Vogel. Remember what Jeanie Buss stated earlier this season when rumors of Vogel being on the hot seat started (After Lake Show Life’s observations two months prior of course!) back in December according to NBA.com?
"“Until we’re 100% healthy, I don’t think you can really make any judgment,” “We’re as connected as any organization can be,” Buss said. “I really don’t know what you’re looking for me to say. I would say until we’re 100 percent healthy, I won’t make any judgments about anything.”"
If you have been following the work of Lake Show Life, it is common knowledge that for the last two years since Magic Johnson resigned leaks to the media almost never happen. Two different sides of the same story with the coaching situation from the Los Angeles Times and The Athletic is making the franchise look bad. As stated before, the Lakers can’t keep their narratives straight and are basing their decisions on narrative at this point.
Thanks to this fourth-quarter comeback, your frustrations will continue. The front office is counting on a blowout to create justifications to make a coaching change. Based on how their mismanagement of this entire season, they won’t do it now.
Plus they will have you stringing along for another 48 hours with AD updates, just they did when LeBron was out with a groin injury.
Lakers fans, until the front office stops playing to the media and start doing their job by making changes that matter besides their announcements to protect their narratives, the Los Angeles Lakers will go down to the last week of the season struggling to make the play-in tournament.
