One of the best players in Lakers history is hopping his former team is one of the worst in NBA history. In a recent radio interview, the legendary point guard had something to say about his Lakers, and Kobe Bryant and all the Lakers and their fans probably will not like it.
I hope the Lakers lose every game, because if you’re going to lose, lose. I’m serious.
If you’re going to lose, you have to lose, because you can’t be in the middle of the pack. You either have to be great or you have to be bad, to get a good pick. …
The Lakers are in a good space, too, next summer if they can sign or trade for a talented guy. I’d rather be all the way bad than be in the middle.
Yes, Magic Johnson wants the Lakers to tank. While losing is not always what us humans like to do it could be in best interest for the Lakers to tank and build for the future and maybe give Kobe a shot at his 6th ring, which he so desires. It’s highly unlike the Lakers make the playoffs, so they’ll be in the lottery for a chance to maybe make Magic happy with their losing.
