"Los Angeles Lakers Off-Season Poast"


          

Well here we are.

What was already going to be the most important off-season in team history just got thrown another curve when Magic stepped down last night.

It was most likely for the best now than later. Earv is one of the greatest Lakers of all-time but just like with his short coaching stint I don't think he fully realized what he was getting into. The NBA has changed a lot in 30 years.

Playing professional sports, coaching professional sports, and running a professional sports organization is a lot harder than most people think that have never done it before, from armchair internet blowhards, to drunks at the bar, to talking heads on TV, to HOF former athletes.

Now where do we go from here? People have said that the Lakers have been ran as a "mom & pop" organization and you can't do that and be successful in 2019.

Will we bring in somebody from outside the Laker family to right the ship? What does the future hold for Pelinka and Luke?

Oh yeah btw we have a draft and free agency coming up....
