How Jeanie Buss “Accidentally” BCCed Magic Johnson on Emails Where Rob Pelinka Was Talking Trash About Him Was to Root of Magic’s “Backstabbing” Comments (Video)

If this true, then I can understand why Magic was upset.

With that being said whatever Pelinka was saying was probably true, but he should have said it to Magic’s face and didn’t run to Jeanie about it.

The BCC will always get you caught up. Here is the story as told by Ric Bucher.

“My understanding is that there were some emails that were exchanged between Rob and Jeanie…about Magic and about what Magic was and wasn’t doing. They were critical emails. And somehow, someway, Jeanie, from what I understand, was CC’ing or blind CC’ing Magic on everything. That was sort of protocol. Standard issue.

Somehow, the exchange between Rob and Jeanie ended up on that string of the blind CC’s that were going to Magic. So, Magic now is seeing emails from Rob to Jeanie that were critical of what he was doing and maybe most important in all this is that there was no indication that Jeanie was backing Rob up in terms of either going to Magic and letting him know this was going on or going back at Rob and defending Magic. That was not happening and so when he talked about the backstabbing, to me, my understanding that’s what started it. The fact that Jeanie waved goodbye and said ‘Thank you for all that you did’ was that she didn’t necessarily disagree with what Rob was saying.”

Too much drama with the Lakers, they really need to clean this up.
