View Full Version : Was Magic Johnson tampering?

On the TNT broadcast last night Magic Johnson was urging Kevin Garnett to leave Minnie. Now I'm not sure if he still is, but at one time Magic owned 5% of the lakers?

Isn't that tampering by the lakers? I've seen reports that the lakers are in the market for Garnett..

I was thinking that same thing. I'm pretty sure Magic's the vice president of the Lakers.

does anyone ever listen to TNT's color commentary though?

What are you guys talking about?

Minnesota landed coveted free agent Mike James this year, and they're really going places now that they have him.

geez, you guys are crazy.

Its a complicated situation, an owner who is also a commentator who is paid to give his opinions of all teams in the league. Maybe it's his honest opinion, who knows.

Yeah but what If that becomes a factor in KG's move from Minny? And ends up in LA? Will Magic be held responsible for the move? A big IF.

Why are we making a stink of this? Everyone in the league not named Kevin McHale knows KG should leave Minny.

Thanks for the reasoned input dirka'. Sheesh.....

The question is an interesting one. If donnie nelson get's on TNT and looks KG in the eye and says get out of there man, you'll never win there, ever..you need to go somewhere else...Would THAT be tampering?

Yea...I think so..

So why isn't this? And if not, then donnie, aj, cubes and everyone should get on the tube and talk about how michael redd or whoever needs to get out so they can come to a winner. "wink-wink".
