You remember that kid from youth basketball who nobody actually liked? He was an awful player but got a lot of playing time because he was the coach’s son. He always invited the best players to his sweet pool after the game, so they just pretended they liked him and that he was a good player.
Magic Johnson was the ceremonial VP of the Lakers? I thought he was an NBA reporter. Rolling out scoops like, “Steph Curry shot great because he made most of his jump shots,” and “The Cavaliers lost because they scored less points than the Warriors in each of the four quarters.”
