Magic Johnson Recently accused of appearing on Get Up ESPN Lebron James for the unsuccessful season of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers have proven the team’s consistency in winning games and improving their record to make it into the postseason. The biggest credit for the situation the Lakers are in right now is due to the veteran roster they signed before the season started and claimed to be a championship contender. LeBron James, also known as LeGM, handpicked those veterans who are now a big problem due to team chemistry issues, reduced mobility and injuries. The regular season is coming to an end and yet, for once, the team has not lined up with a completely healthy squad.
Currently, the Los Angeles Lakers, led by LeBron James, are ranked the 11th seed in the league’s Western Conference with a record 32 wins and 47 losses at .397. The team maintains a losing streak of six very important games and is currently unable to even make it into the postseason as they currently don’t even fit into the play-in tournament. The reality was very disappointing for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team has also disappointed owner Jeanie Buss, Lakers Nation, former players and especially Lakers legend Magic Johnson, who is a Hall of Famer, member of the NBA 75 and past president of the team’s basketball operations.
Magic Johnson recently revealed where it all went wrong during off-season signings and how the front office messed up the roster without listening to his advice. Since he is still around the team and franchise. Magic Johnson is already frustrated with the team since he broke it to the world on Twitter, and now that he’s blaming LeBron James for the Lakers’ losing record, things won’t really go well in the office for King James.

Magic Johnson blames LeBron James for Los Angeles Lakers struggles
Magic Johnson wanted DeMar DeRozan to be a Laker, although DeMar was also interested in signing here and playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. But LeBron James signed Russell Westbrook instead, where he gave away the team’s young and improved core. Discussing this on Get Up, ESPN quoted Magic Johnson as saying: “The blame he has to take is the fact that DeRozan ended up in Chicago and not with the Lakers. DeRozan wanted to play for the Lakers and when I got the call from his agent [Aaron Goodwin]I called the Lakers and said, ‘Hey, he wants to come home,’ DeRozan wanted to be a Laker instead of a cop.”
Further, Magic Johnson adds how it all went wrong and how it affected the quoted list: “We could have made that deal. But when Russell and LeBron started talking, they squandered that deal and went with Westbrook and he became a Laker instead of DeRozan. I think with DeRozan you had a chance to keep your role players Caruso, KCP, all those guys who are the best defenders, all those guys and that’s why we’re a bad defensive team. If you signed DeRozan and just act [Kyle] Kuzma to Buddy Hield, we’d be playing with these two guys in the Western Conference Championship this year.”
DeMar DeRozan and Buddy Hield, who plays alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, are certainly a championship contender team, but also the one they built with some mistakes. Magic Johnson’s imaginary roster is the better one so far, but unfortunately the reality is disappointing and the Lakers are struggling because of some wrong decisions by LeBron James. The season will soon be over for the Lakers unless they win all of their remaining games, while the San Antonio Spurs fall short for most of their match-up, allowing the Lakers to step in as the 10th seed.
