We lost it all as Lakers super Star announced that he’s leaving today’ another significant issue for the team…

NBA legend Magic Johnson points finger at load management after Lakers’ early playoff exit

 

 

The Los Angeles Lakers have struggled against the Denver Nuggets in the playoffs over the past couple of years.

Denver swept Los Angeles in last season’s Western Conference Finals and have now eliminated the Lakers in the first round of this year’s playoffs. While the Lakers managed to avoid a four-game sweep this year, Los Angeles was largely overwhelmed by the defending NBA champions.

Nuggets star Jamal Murray’s late-game heroics, which were marred by controversy, and Lakers forward Anthony Davis’ injury in Game 5 are just some of the reasons Denver won the series.

 

 

But NBA legend Magic Johnson pointed to what he believes is the primary reason his former team was eliminated during the first round of the playoffs: load management.

“The Lakers have nobody but themselves to blame. They wouldn’t have been in the play-in game or finished as a 7th seed this season if they hadn’t lost too many games because of load management,” Johnson wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
