Apparently there is going to be an actual documentary coming out later this year that covers the last 40 years of the Lakers and that one has the full blessing of the Lakers from Jeanie on down.

According to what was said, it will include some never before seen footage of interviews with Dr. Buss.

John C. Reilly is so great at playing Dr. Buss that I almost completely forget that he is John C. Reilly.

Me too. He not only looks like him, but from what I can recall, he's got the voice down pretty good too.

Guess they TRULY hate how this series portrays them. STILL a fun series, though...:lol:
Well we know the truth is always going to lie somewhere in the middle. The guy that wrote the book it is based on supposedly interviewed a lot of people.

TBF, the guy who plays Jerry West looks really creepy. Maybe I'm just thinking that because he played the villain in a Terminator movie and he was in Pet Sematary. I'd be mad, too, if I were Jerry West. LOL.

One of the better lines in the show thus far was in the last show. West and Magic were having a conversation about titles and being happy. West was lamenting how close he was to 5 titles. Magic says yeah but you got one. West says yeah and I’ll take one over being happy any fn day.

The author has a lot of books, all with a slant to them.

I haven't read it yet, but I've read that the book this series is based on, is actually really good. I'm going to get it pretty soon.

Have you seen the "They Call Me Magic" 4 part series on Apple+?

I watched it yesterday. Really well done.

Interesting tweet from Pearlman in regards to the show's portrayal of West. It's an excerpt describing Jerry West's own memoir. So yeah, the show ain't far off

So I still like the show but I think it's getting a bit less fun for me. Now that the fun part of seeing who plays all these real people is over the dialogue is kind of clunky.

But still like it, just losing some initial buzz for me

That's funny shit right there. Guess he only likes that stuff put out for public discussion if he is the one profiting from it.

What's funny to me is that West has become one of the most sympathetic characters in the show as the it progresses. And Jason Clarke's performance is fantastic.

Last night's episode was great. Love the foreshadowing of Magic practicing the sky hook. Wifey had absolutely no idea what that was all about.

Yep. He probably took the feedback from episode 1 and ran with it rather than seeing it evolve into who he is today.

Yeah, if he read some websites, he'd probably find that he's a lot of folks favorite character. I don't know if his ''Paul Revere should have slept in" comment was real or not, but so far, it's been the best line in the show.

The person who should be pissed is Westhead...unless he really was the overwhelmed, incompetent pussy the show has portrayed him as.

From what I've read, much of it seems to be focused around the scene where he throws the finals MVP trophy through his office window. Apparently, his office at the forum didn't have any windows, he had very little memorabilia in it (the only reason he had any was because it's expected when you work for a basketball team) and apparently that trophy is the last one he'd have out because it was from a finals they lost.

They have really made West look good in terms of his development as a front office person. He is absolutely my favorite character in the show.
