Doug Gottlieb: “THIS IS WEIRD… Didn’t Magic tell us they were run by a guy who’s backstabber, that they’re inept, and you want to get back to having fun? WHY ARE YOU HERE? It’s like the ex-boyfriend showing up at the rehearsal dinner.”
Listen to Doug Gottlieb explain why it’s shocking and a little bit comical that Los Angeles Lakers reporter Brad Turner is reporting that the Lakers are planning an in-person meeting with free agent superstar Kawhi Leonard that will involve Jeanie Buss and… MAGIC JOHNSON.
Gottlieb wonders why the same guy who had one of the most melodramatic resignations in recent history is suddenly going to be back on the bandwagon as the franchise tries to recruit one of the most important free agents of all time.
So Magic, you dumped on the franchise and the organization for a week, saying it wasn’t fun for you anymore, and now you’re going to be involved in arguably the most important meeting in Lakers history a month later?
Check out the audio below as Gottlieb thinks this is one of the weirdest twists of fate that he can ever remember.
