Mark Cuban On Why He Hopes Magic Fails in Lakers Front Office Position


For years, the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers have had a little rivalry, but over the past few years, both franchises have been in complete rebuild mode.

However, with Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant’s agent Rob Pelinka in front office positions, fans and media alike are hopeful they will turn the franchise around.

“I hope they fail miserably. I hope they fail horrifically,” Cuban said. “I hope Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka go down as the worst GM/President combination in the history of GM/President combinations. But I hope they live wonderful lives.”

Cuban went on to elaborate.

“The worse it is, the better for me,” Cuban said before the Lakers-Mavericks game on Tuesday at American Airlines Center. “There’s no NBA thing involved. We survived the other franchise going through some hell that didn’t begin to rival what may be going on. The more turmoil with 29 other teams, the happier I am.”

You have to love Cuban’s honesty.
