INDIANAPOLIS - MARCH 29: Former Michigan State player Earvin Magic Johnson is interviewed by the media following the Michigan State Spartans' 64-52 win against the Louisville Cardinals during the fourth round of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament at the Lucas Oil Stadium on March 29, 2009 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Miami Heat owner Micky Arison is not afraid to say what is on his mind and poke jabs at other teams and other owners. Last night he took a shot at Magic Johnson in a quite excellent job at trolling. Magic has decided to make one of Arison’s player, LeBron James, his “cause”. He is using James unwillingness to participate in the dunk contest as a way of question James giving back to the fans. To that end, he has offered James $1 million to participate next year. So Arison decided to have some fun with Magic on twitter. Early in the day, Magic took the twodel approach of “RT if you want to see LeBron in the dunk contest.” to which Arison replied… @magicjohnson we will be happy to welcome them to @aaarena tix available at gohe.at/Avz99t — Micky Arison (@MickyArison) March 6, 2013 Then later that night, as Magic’s beloved Lakers were getting throttled by the Oklahoma City Thunder, allowing 71 points at the half, Magic tweeted out his disbelief. Laker Nation: Really? Really?…The Thunder have 71pts at halftime! Really? — Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) March 6, 2013 To which Arison had this quick and biting response. A truly masterful troll. @magicjohnson maybe they should all enter the slam dunk contest. — Micky Arison (@MickyArison) March 6, 2013 Well played Mr. Arison, well played.
