Magic Johnson Throws Shots At Lakers And Dwight Howard
NBA analyst and Hall of Fame point guard Earvin “Magic” Johnson is less than impressed with his former team’s performance in the playoffs.
The ex-Lakers star lashed out on the current squad on Twitter, specifically Dwight Howard. Johnson, who sold his share of the storied franchise in 2010, took to Twitter last night to express his discontentment with the organization. “Laker nation: I’m sooooooooooo happy this season is over,” he wrote. “With the talent on this team this could go down as one of the worst seasons in Lakers’ history!”
Johnson also addressed Howard’s on-court behavior in the game four matchup against the San Antonio Spurs, which resulted in the Lake show’s curtain call from the first round of the playoffs.
“Dwight, I’ve been swept before,” he told the All-star center, over the popular social networking site, “but I never let my team down by getting kicked out of the game.”
Magic spent 13 seasons on the Lakers, garnishing five NBA championships and three MVP awards. He has been a league analyst for ESPN since 2008.
