Mark Cuban Hopes Magic Johnson, Pelinka ‘Fail Miserably’ Trying to Rebuild Lakers Franchise

Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

Tell us how you really feel.

Just like many other teams in the Shaq-Kobe/Kobe-Gasol era, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was forced to watch his squad struggle against a Los Angeles Lakers franchise that refused to die off, as he witnessed them win multiple championships in the process.

The last four seasons have been nothing but a struggle for the rebuilding Lakers and Mark Cuban hopes it stays that way under its new management.

“I hope they fail miserably. I hope they fail horrifically,” Cuban told Mark Medina of The Orange County Register. “I hope Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka go down as the worst GM/President combination in the history of GM/President combinations. But I hope they live wonderful lives.”

It’s not just the Lakers he wants to see suck for awhile, but every other franchise as well—while the Mavs, of course, flourish.

“The worse it is, the better for me,” Cuban said. “There’s no NBA thing involved. We survived the other franchise going through some hell that didn’t begin to rival what may be going on. The more turmoil with 29 other teams, the happier I am.”

The Mavericks are currently 27-36 after a 122-111 win over the Lakers Tuesday night.
