More like Losing Time.
It ended with the lakers losing to the celtics, what a shitshow.
Magic looked like a whiny bitch. Larry Bird was portrayed as a Mary Sue badass.
Larry Bird was a Mary Sue everyone was in shock that a white guy could dominate in the game.
fuck hbo for cancelling this kino
More like Losing Time.
literally nobody on this board gave a shit about this show.
It’s known by extras in LA that HBO productions treat them the worst.
I watched every episode every sunday night and I made many threads about it.
>Makes a Drama celebrating a dynasty franchise that's always been rigged to win Championships
Just wonder have the Germans made any media celebrating Bayern? Because that's the only team I can think of that would be more obnoxious to witness sucking themselves off.
Worse than the Yankees? Of which hundreds of propoganda films, fictional and not, have been made.
They have made a few baseball shows if you want to watch them and test your theory. The Bronx is Burning comes to mind---a bit chincy but pretty kino.
Yes definitely worse than the Yankees and I'm from LA. The Yankees have a history, they have iconic players. And say whatever you want about NYC the fact is it's still the most iconic city of the USA and so it's apt to representing the country as a whole.
The Lakers are a plastic team with a dumb soulless name (where are the lakes in Los Angeles???). Yes it'd be hypocritical of me for complaining that the Lakers can outspend everyone else to get star talent but in the MLB the Yankees can spend an obscene amount of money and still lose. Whereas the Lakers moneyhat star talent and get ringhunters whether its Shaq or LeBitch. The fans are plastic, the Staples stadium sucks, that whole part of LA is fucking shit.
NBA is so damn boring when it's just star stuffed teams vs total shit. The biggest surprise was the Bucks winning that was actually kino. Fuck Lakers, Fuck Golden State, fucked the rigged refs that screwed over the Sacramento Kings so the Kobe get a threepeat. https://youtu.be/ITDJBr-iN1I?si=GZXCUseKNG-f57S9
>The Lakers are a plastic team with a dumb soulless name (where are the lakes in Los Angeles?)
I think they were originally located in Minnesota before they got moved. Still it's a stupid name and they should have just changed it.
The Lakers Giraffe logo
That Giraffe on the card
They screwed the Spurs too when Kobe and Co. were in their 3 peat phase. David Stern had a massive hardon for big city teams winning. Thank God that guy is gone.
>David Stern had a massive hardon for big city teams winning.
stern was the one who veto'd chris paul going to L.A. using the logic that "they'd be too strong" lol swear you kids get more ignant by the day
uh-oh some /nba/ whiteys got outside their dead containment general... throwing words around...
>The Yankees have a history, they have iconic players.
lakers have more iconic players than any other team, sweetheart darling child. kobe, shaq, wilt, kareem, magic right there blows out vast majority of teams
>where are the lakes in Los Angeles???
gosh what a hilarious and original point
>Yes it'd be hypocritical of me for complaining that the Lakers can outspend everyone else
it'd just further show your ignorance because the NBA is a charity league... most profitable teams donate winnings to the least profitable teams. and there are very well-defined salary caps unlike in soccer
>Whereas the Lakers moneyhat star talent and get ringhunters whether its Shaq or LeBitch
so it's inherently ring-chasing to come to L.A.? lebron already had multiple rings dipshit lol
>The fans are plastic
been a fan for over 30 years
>the Staples stadium sucks
uhh it's the crypto arena aka "the crypt"
>NBA is so damn boring when it's just star stuffed teams vs total shit.
denver won their first ring last year lol
>The biggest surprise was the Bucks winning that was actually kino
wow son complain about star-studded teams and then celebrate the overdogs and regular season champs... 70-IQ stuff...
>fucked the rigged refs that screwed over the Sacramento Kings
yeah i hate how the refs forced the queens to repeatedly turn the ball over
those damn refs!
>been a fan for over 30 years
where you from fool?
The NBA is shit, it's turning into a sideshow the way the players act like every ridiculous 8 step travel to lay up or illegal block is worth chimping out for on the sidelines like a Worldstar video. Players are now acting cartoonishly troll-like. The opposite is true of baseball, despite the ridiculous let the kids play, baseball is fun meme last year before Tatis popped and Chisolm proved to be pretty inconsistent. All the stars, the ones people like--Judge, Ohtani, J-Rod have sort of bland, diplomatic HR-approved personalities, which is honestly way better after what's happened to the political spectacle that sport has become from NBA, NFL, Olympics etc.
Good. A bunch of my extra friends who worked this show said it was awful.
that they were treated awful, or the show was awful? your friends sounds like jealous israeliteed slobbering homosexual scum, as you do
but it is! aids magic!
It was the only good show HBO had right now. And the ending was very abrupt too. Magic and Larry didn't even get to become friends. What a waste.
>Magic and Larry didn't even get to become friends
That's what I was waiting to see!
>When Magic got aids Larry was one of the first phone calls
That would have been kino
Larry, I just got fucked in the ass.
I have AIDS!
This worthless show is the reason why Will Ferrell's greatest partnerships were broken.
Will Ferrell really wanted to play the role of Jerry Buss, but McKay gave it to John C. Reilly behind his back.
Worse than that they conceived it together and it was primarily Will's idea in the first place. McKay likes sports but he isn't a fanatic like Ferrel, especially for LA teams
And he didn’t even tell Will about him picking Reilly, like a man. Will found out from Reilly.
does ferrell hate reilly now too?
So gay. By far their best current show. The casting was amazing, every time I see pat riley IRL i'm going to think of the actor
John kills it as buss so I undersrand the choice
Weren't they both producers on The Menu? Did time suddenly accelerate because I thought that only came out last year?
If two producers on the same film never spoke to each other at any point in production I guess that would explain the state of modern Hollywood a bit.
Honestly if Will Ferrell had been cast as Jerry Buss it might have been picked up for a 3rd and 4th season
I heard of this show, but I thought it was a documentary. It was a show-show with actors and whatnot? They didn't do a very good job of communicating that.
Yeah this. I thought it was another exaggerated documentary movie "based" on real events like that Dahmer or Ted Bundy slop. 2 seasons? Who watches this?
First season was great
Second season was all over the place. It was slow and rushed at the same time
i'm kind of surprised that this season got two full seasons, it seems like a story that could've been told as a miniseries, if not within two seasons
i mean did they really need a third season anyway? what for?
The rise of Jordan, Magic getting AIDS, ending with Shaq and Kobe's runs on the Lakers. Ending seemed very abrupt imo, like they weren't expecting getting cancelled.
>t. suffering Knicks fan
they probably weren't, if I had to guess the show is a casualty of the merger and the new CEO making cutbacks
although to be fair, I don't think that many people were watching it and it's probably pretty expensive to shoot considering it's all on film and they had some pretty big names on the cast
Makes sense to me, they wouldn't have shot the opening scene of the show him getting diagnosed if they didn't intend to go in media res back to it later on. Guess zoomers don't care about basketball unless it's totally nigged out.
I just think they picked kind of a mediocre era for basketball, nobody even really brings up magic johnson or larry bird when they talk about basketball greats anymore
that era of the lakers lacks the dominance of the michael jordan bulls and the attitude of the shaq/kobe lakers, when I found out they were making a show about magic johnson I was like, really? why?
Both Magic and Bird are universally considered top 10 players of all time.
Magic typically ranked around 4-6 all time.
Larry usually ranked 6-8.
I don't think I've ever encountered a top 10 all time list without both of them in it.
Beyond retarded to say that no one mentions them among the best ever.
i'm saying that that particular era is overshadowed by other ones that people remember over this one, not that they were bad players
>Magic typically ranked around 4-6 all time.
>Larry usually ranked 6-8.
Larry is better than Magic. Even Lebron concedes that. Magic had a better team around him than Bird did, and the Western conference of the NBA was mostly a shitshow in the 80s with the exception of the Lakers. But the Eastern conference was a fucking battlefield to get to the finals.
I never understood how Magic always got the rub over Larry when it comes to ranking.
Larry Bird is one of the most ruthless basketball players in history only rivaled by Jordan and Bryant.. He was an absolute savage that would talk shit about your whore mother while draining 3 pointers over your terrible defense.
On top of that Bird ate Magic's lunch
If Larry Bird was black he'd be *viewed* as a top 5
>I never understood how Magic always got the rub over Larry when it comes to ranking.
More rings. He was also on a flashier team and had a flashier style of play. Magic was a great interview and went on lots of shows whereas Bird pretty much avoided the media whenever possible.
>If Larry Bird was black he'd be *viewed* as a top 5
He is viewed as Top 5. Lebron puts his top 3 as Jordan, Dr. J, Larry. Magic/Bird is very debatable.
My top 5:
lebron doesnt even crack top five?
No way. He did his best work in the softest league in history. And he can take that faggy flop shit elsewhere.
Its only partially about Magic Johnson, Its more about Jerry Buss rebuilding the Lakers into a multiple-ring winning unit around Magic, which precipitated the continued success of the Lakers to the modern day. Its also about family, as the Lakers are still owned by his daughter Jeanie, and 6 of his 7 children actively work within the Lakers today.
Kek based, baseball would work much better as a tv show anyway. Make one about the steroid era & not the gay nagger lakers.
86 Mets should be a tv show. Imagine the kino of them winning the World Series down 0-2 then Doc scoring some coke instead of attending the parade the following day
while my parents watched this i never saw a thread here
Who would the main character even be? Strawberry? He was a drunk sex pest that entire season. Hernandez & Gooden were desolate cokeheads. There’s not really a narrative focus with them. It would just be episodes of baseball players doing various drugs, booze, fucking women, and starting fights
>Who would the main character even be?
Keith Hernandez. Though Gooden was the only megastar on the Mets in 86.
its because you homosexuals didnt stream it the day it released. HBO saw that and canceled it. you need to stream harder faster and sooner or else.
not gonna lie, loved the first season but season 2 felt so meh dropped it 3 episodes in
NBA players were getting mad about it because they thought it was inaccurate, particularly Jerry West
That seemed funny to me because I thought they portrayed West in a fairly positive light, very passionate about the game. Adrian Brody was a decent Riley, too bad he looks like the biggest hooked nose israelite in the world instead of any other irish or irish descended person on planet earth.
pay the writers, get more content
but but we can get AI to shit out slop, the public will literally never be able to tell the difference
Mentally ill tranny.
>cancelled after two seasons
Was that not enough? Why wasn't this a miniseries?
Makes me smile seeing all two of you pissed off this show was cancelled. Fucking losers. Gain taste.
Not really upset since second season was shit so I lost interest
finally, this was awful.
>Adam McKay's dumb 4th wall breaking tricks
>retconning real people to meet 2020s political narratives
>unfunny comedy/uninteresting dram
>retconning real people to meet 2020s political narratives
So what did they retcon?
well John C Reilys character wasn't trans I dont think, for one.
Season 2 focuses on magic's medication being developed alongside Riley's character hormone treatment.
Jack Kent Cooke as a racist, despite the fact that he gave millions to black college scholarships
Jeannie Buss as a career woman/girlboss, despite the fact that she was a college student when the show took place a decade before she joined the Lakers
also turned Jerry West into a psycho and Larry Bird into a jerk, just to add to the drama
they should've gotten jake johnson for the coach/recruiter role
no one cares about the lakers except shit homosexuals in LA
total celtics victory
the espn doc with ice cube and other wahlberg really killed this.
I'm gradually going through season 1 and liking it. Does season 2 stay as good? Does it now serve as a satisfying conclusion?
What did they expect from a Basketball show? The world doesnt care about it, the brown masses only watch soccer
The show has a lot of nostalgic LA masturbation; it feels like something for rich old LA boomers who now vote on the Oscars and shit and have nostalgic memories of "Magic Johnson" and "the Hollywood Bowl" and shit like that.
They should approach Jack Nicholson for funding/producing. He can recreate the time he spilled chili on the court. Not like he has that much else to do and he's a massive Lakers fan.
>They should approach Jack Nicholson for funding/producing.
he cant find his wallet and doesnt know where he is
>rich old LA boomers who now vote on the Oscars and shit and have nostalgic memories of "Magic Johnson" and "the Hollywood Bowl"
>show ends with the Lakers dynasty destroyed and unable to beat Bird and the Celtics
>in reality the Lakers beat the Celtics in the finals the next year and again a few years later
They did a great job with Bird though. Most young black guys don't even know who he is but almost every black player put Bird in their top 5 or even 3.
Well, should we Cinemaphile?
That's what you get for back stabbing Will Ferrell, Adam, you slimy two faced rat!
>Adam, you slimy two faced rat!
This is hate speech.
never watched it never will
If HBO had Magic fucking and sucking trannies like their other shows you'd be staring down 8 seasons and it wouldn't be fictional
>no magic aids plot
Shame. The first episode where they teased it looked kino. The show should've at least ended with
>and with the 3rd pick in the 1984 draft, the bulls select, MICHAEL JORDAN
>*cuts to black, the end
Good fucking show, John C Reilly at his best and after its gets through the eclectic ending of the first few episodes it settled into a nice groove. I saw this coming from their social media posts. Sad that a large portion of Cinemaphile is too pigheaded about political and racial issues to appreciate true Kino.
Most of Cinemaphile thinks they are too cool for "normie" things like sports. They didn't touch this show
>kneeling nagger ball
You are watching a show about adult men watching adult men play like children.
Actually he's watching a show about a guy that built a business in the 80s. Which ended up becoming one of the most recognizable and profitable brands in the entire world.
But like he said.. Cinemaphile is full of retards.
Isn't getting a second season to begin with already winning
Watched the first couple episodes and I didn't find it particularly interesting or particularly funny I know they were kind of trying to go with both. It felt like they couldn't decide if they wanted to make Goodfellas or Semi-Pro. I also HATED how every character got to do asides. It was distracting and lame.
highly underrated series. you dont have to like basketball or sports to appreciate this. i wont be cliche and call it kino
very unbecoming of the showrunners begging people to watch, it was ''plz subscribe to my channel!'' tier.
