time to win” – New Woman

HBO Max premiered the series “Lakers: time to win”starring the great John C. Reilly, and produced by Adam McKay, the same man who directed the movie “Don’t Look Up” for Netflix.

“Lakers: Time to Win” tells the story of one of the greatest sports dynasties of all time, which changed the entire NBA, transforming it into the spectacle it is today.

And it is that before, basketball was not one of the most popular sports. Then, in 1979, businessman Jerry Buss, a guy with a pompous hairstyle and a petulant personality who enjoyed the excesses of the Californian night, bought the mediocre Lakers team.

Buss had the goal of uniting the NBA league, which was losing fans daily, by turning it into a media show, very Hollywood-style, and for this, he had a young promise of this sport, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

The rise of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s

The series itself will narrate the rise to fame of the Lakers team in the eighties, the so-called “golden age” of one of the most important teams in the American basketball league, despite the fact that now that popularity is no longer it’s not what it was.

The series is based on the book by Jeff Pearlman, “Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s”, a writer who specializes in sports topics.

But unlike the vast majority of sports stories that are shown on screen, this series is not seen from the point of view of the players, but from what happens behind the locker room.

Specifically, we will learn how Jerry Buss, a business expert, changed the way sports are sold, and that it ended up being implemented throughout the sports industry.

For example, putting on music in the stadium, putting on a show with cheerleaders, partnering with shoe and clothing companies to fund teams and donate clothing, and much more.

Things that the public currently takes for granted, because all games or matches are expected to have things to entertain the public beyond seeing a group of people playing, however, it was not like that before, until Jerry Buss started it to implement and the rest of the world began to copy.

But another aspect that draws attention is that despite being a series about the history of a basketball team, they show very little of this sport, and focus more on the duo that make up Buss and Magic Johnson.

In this dramatic comedy we will see more than anything the clashes of strong personalities, a lot of lack of control, mobsters, in addition to dealing with issues such as pornography, misogyny, racism and drugs within the sports field.

“Lakers: Time to Win” has a star-studded cast

Jerry Buss is played by John C. Reilly, while Quincy Isaiah plays Earvin Magic Johnson. And next to them are such important figures as Jason Clark, Gaby Hoffmann, Sally Field and Adrien Brody.

Besides, it is known that they will also be Julianne Nicholson, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Segel, Lola Kirke, Tracy Letts, and Rory Cochrane. The series will have six episodes, and of the three that have been released so far, the story has not progressed much.

The game season has not even started as such, so it is estimated that it will be a series that lasts several seasons. The initial reviews have been good, the public also seems to have received it well, so the continuity of the series is more than assured.
