Rob Pelinka celebrated Lakers title by calling Magic Johnson
Magic Johnson went on national television accusing Rob Pelinka of treason.
A season later, the Lakers are NBA champions.
I'm still so grateful for the two seasons I got to work with Earvin and he's definitely a part of tonight with his vision and collaboration. He's an amazing person and we have a great, incredibly strong relationship. He was one of the first calls tonight. Had a great conversation with him.
As team president, Johnson positioned the Lakers to get LeBron James to completely destroy the building around LeBron. After Johnson resigned, Pelinka - the general manager of the Lakers - did a far better job around LeBron with talent, particularly in closing the Anthony Davis deal.
The front office partnership, chaotic as it was, proved incredibly effective.
Now the crack appears over. This is partly a case where most diseases are cured, partly a case where Johnson loves life and the Lakers too much to hold a grudge.
