Much noise has been made about the dysfunction of the Lakers, most notably within their front office. With Magic Johnson having left the franchise a few weeks ago, control of the team has been handed to GM Rob Pelinka, a name most are still not convinced about.

He doesn't have the experience, he does not seem to be well liked around the league, and his decision making has been a matter for great debate since his hire. But are we exaggerating the dysfunction of his tenure?

According to a statement by former Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr., the idea that he was lied to about his status with the team is fake news. He understands the business side of the NBA and says he still has a working relationship with Pelinka.

The tweet by Nance is a good sign. It shows that Pelinka can build a connection to the players and that he does not make empty promises about their future.

What these next few months have in store for them is anyone's guess, but it will be Rob Pelinka's job to make the most of it. And while he might not be the best guy for the job, he might not be as ill-equipped as the public would have us believe.
