I got to be honest, I saw this coming. When this 2018-19 Los Angeles Lakers team nose-dived and missed the playoff, it was time for the blame game. Some people blame LeBron, some people blame the players around LeBron, and some people blame Magic Johnson.
I think Magic is not sure if he can bring another superstar to Los Angeles to play with LeBron this off-season. I think he does take some of the blame for this current Lakers roster not being good enough.
