The Los Angeles Lakers essentially didn’t show up for their last game before the NBA All-Star break, but even their blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns has been less of a botched debacle so far than Magic Johnson’s publicity tour since re-joining the Lakers as an advisor to Jeanie Buss.

After talking about the game and D’Angelo Russell’s minutes for a bit, Harrison and Anthony discussed what they think the problems have been with Johnson’s mixed messages and the timing of his whole whirlwind of media appearances on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
