    I just posted about how I hoped this wouldn't be the case. And right before the trade deadline?!?

    F you, Jeanie. If this blows up in spectacular fashion, which I think it will, you need to GTFO.

    Oh God, just thinking about Magic's insufferably simple-minded Twitter feed, and now he's the only one running the show?? God help us...

    So..we have no GM to make a deal at the deadline? I know we saw this coming a mile away, but I'm not super excited until I hear who we hire. I'm glad Jim is out, but replacing Mitch, while probably overdue, has to still be done right if we want to get better.

    Could it be any worse than what Mitch and Jim have done? A change needed to happen. They both were given more than enough time to get the Lakers back to being the Lakers and it didn't happen. I'm willing to give Magic a chance before I jump off a ledge.

    Well, better to go ahead and get this out of the way now instead of having them at the helm of making moves here at the trade deadline.

    Jim needed to step out.

    I'm sorry to see Mitch go.

    Timing is horribad.

    Magic better get Jerry West back here as Advisor in Chief right now.

    No point in letting this whole thing drag on to the summer though.

    This is precisely what we all knew was happening, isn't it?

    Also, f*** Jeanie for doing this RIGHT NOW. Two days before the deadline? Oh man.

    This needed to happen. This should have happened in the offseason though, but hey, rip that band aid off right away I guess.

    We'll see what happens.

    What I do know is what we were doing wasn't working.

    Wow. That escalated quickly (I say in my Ron Burgundy voice).

    On the one hand, glad to see Jim Buss go,
    On the other hand, sad to see Mitch go and I agree the timing is questionable.

    I hope Magic doesn't try and get all fancy and overpay for a splash move before the Thursday trade deadline.
