NBA: Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With the trade deadline behind us and Magic Johnson squarely at the helm of the Los Angeles Lakers, fans finally get a chance to catch their breath collectively.

So, what better time to bring on friend of the show Chris McGee (or Geeter, as we’re all legally supposed to call him because Magic said so) of Spectrum SportsNet for a second time around to talk about everything that’s been going on.

There is plenty to talk about.

First, we get how he found out about the Jim Buss, Mitch Kupchak and John Black firings — and how they affected the volleyball he was supposed to play with Luke Walton.

Then, we got his thoughts on the move and what it might mean for the Lakers moving forward.

Thursday was also trade deadline day, so we spoke to him about what trading Lou Williams means both for the team right now and what message it sends about the organization’s direction on the whole.

The conversation then veers towards Walton’s coaching style, expectations for the season moving forward, and we send Marcelo Huertas off in style.

As always, if you enjoy the show, you can find our iTunes channel here (and give us a nice rating if you’re so inclined), or you can listen to the podcast directly through Audioboom below.
