Is that what Jeanie did with that PPP loan she got for small businesses? Produce a return serve for winning time? Oh, that's right, she paid it back after she got s*** for it. Nevermind.
Is that what these slaps are worried about more than running a basketball team?
We don't need a history lesson on the Lakers team when Dr Buss bought the team every other year. We already know what happened.
Winning Time is fiction but somehow the real life persons depicted there felt they need to produce these counter narratives
Questions? Axe who questions?
how many lakers documentaries/tv shows have come out in the last 6 months?
winning time, the one about magic, and now this? i'm assuming this is the one jeanie/magic are behind and the reason they were sh** talking winning time?
Looks epic! Been waiting for this.
Jeannie in fact said some of the scenes in Winning Time were accurate especially the one scene where Dr Buss talks to Magic on the court. It's Magic, Kareem, Norm and god knows everyone else who expected exact reality when that never happens in a tv show. It's funny cause the creators of The Dropout didn't get that much angst for telling their story.
This doc/series looks great and hopefully is 100 times better then the Magic series which was very very disappointing. I think Antoine Fuqua can make a damn good doc though and hopefully he does.
what did you not like about the magic series?
It was fine but it was boring and even with 4 eps they seemed to skip over alot of stuff that happened in his career. The 81 playoff implosion, the Westhead firing and his part in it were not really mentioned. There was alot of Cookie and his family, which is fine but it made some of the eps drag along. They went into his losing th e84 finals and how hard it was for him but glossed over 83, 86 and even 89. I had hoped he would've talked more about the Riley firing and the 91 season as well.
Even though Montana had 6 eps in his docuseries, i thought his doc was much better done and went far deeper into his career then Magic's did.
Imagine your team gets 4 movies made about them and your fan base still moans!!!
Welcome to life as a Laker fan.
Love the tv show, Spectrum's doc on the 2000 Lakers and the 30 for 30. The trailer for this doc looks good, i hope they can go in depth as it looks like all the buss kids are involved.
