Magic Johnson says Lakers need to move on and focus on making playoffs l NBA Sound I talked to guys individually, but that’s important to you. No have side bars with them, make sure they’re all in the same direction. That we are. Are you concerned about always worried about guys, sort of feeling, unrest about that? No, you get paid to do a job and we’re all professionals and I’ve been – is legal. 40 years lot of players got traded on Thursday at 1. Guess what don’t happen next year? A lot of players go get traded. You know a lot of players will stay home and I talked to our guys are in a good place. That’S all that matters we heading toward, hopefully, and so that’s a part of it part of NFL part of the NHL. Are the Major League Baseball part of the NBA? Nobody was happy., just the nature of my business, and so the good thing we got is great veterans who bought them. Aside of the business of the NBA, I mean quit playing today I mean he made some great moves, so you know guys came in guys, went out and matter fact we got one of their guys that guy magic, I’m not I’m, not the guy who, oh I’m A hoe you know I’m going to go up and hug guys, I’m not that dude and they’re ready to go. So, let’s not be belabor that point all of a sudden everybody’s you know upset over, maybe being traded. Maybe not you know. We got two new guys that I’m excited about Reggie is here space the floor to floor and that’s what we should be excited about and what point were you sort of prioritizing chasing some more shooting and spacing for the team at what point? How to make adjustment? Because we saw that you know we didn’t get the shooting that we wanted, and so we had to make adjustments to our team. We were on the phone, sir Leon. Nobody was going to make a move until you know the last week and we were locked into Reggie for a long time at some great talks with Detroit and then finally, it became a deal Mike was really last. Second, when we didn’t know that Billy was going to make that move and when they made that move, and we looked up and said man stretch for 5 to really help us out and so good about the trade anytime. You trade somebody like zoo with been playing really good basketball. It’S tough on our team, our fans, but to make us some more dangerous team. We had to make the move open up a roster spot for stew, so we’ll be able to pick up somebody if we want to negotiation. That has a good faith. Negotiation know it. Basically, at the end of the day, what happened happened? What happened but hey! It is what it is, I’m going to say this again quit making this about thinking these guys are babies cuz, that’s what your treatment, they’re professionals? How old is Lee Works? They know it. I know it. That’S how it goes so we got to move forward and we are moving for. They played outstanding against Boston, give them credit well today and continuing on this is a part of the League. This is a part of the. You got a good side of business that we get paid to be professional basketball players. He reached out to me. To me directly to the Lakers to find out if we can get together this summer. I said how you got it the league and if everybody’s a Sixers sign off, we sign off and need sign off. That is not nothing going on, but he wants to know how to play the position as a big guard.. It’S fine. You know I will do that, but if everybody doesn’t sign off, then we can’t get together, but I love this game. I love his vision. I love also too he’s very intensive basketball IQ, very high basketball IQ. The East-West was stacked on a different way, but with all the moves that the east teams are made, it’s going to be something else, I’m so excited and we want to be a part of it. So that’s what I want everybody. What happened? Who name was mentioned? All that that’s over with everybody we want to be in the playoffs too Magic Johnson opens up about the Los Angeles Lakers’ wild trade deadline, moving past the unsuccessful trade for Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, looking forward to the playoffs and working with the Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons later this summer.
