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.

Magic Johnson Says He’ll Pay Lebron James a Cool $1M to Participate in Dunk Contest

First of all, Magic Johnson isn’t stupid. The guy actually turned out to be a quality businessman. You don’t think he’ll get a serious return on this million somehow?

Resilient Magic no match for LeBron's heroics

There are a few things teams cannot do under any circumstances against the Heat. You cannot turn the ball over and allow Miami to get out on the break. You cannot allow the Heat to get those highlight plays that energize the crowd at AmericanAirlines Arena and demoralize their opponents. You cannot allow Miami to take corner threes. The Magic committed 18 turnovers, leading...
