The always candid Magic Johnson, has never been mum on telling his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, exactly what they’re doing wrong. Johnson went on an all out tirade/rant spewing his exact thoughts on the state of the Lake show. As @Lakers fans we demand and expect more once you put that@Lakers Purple & Gold uniform on! All 12 @Lakers players need to understand what it means to be a member of the @Lakers. Above everything else the @Lakers players need to start having fun on the court! Coach D’Antoni has to start teaching better pick & roll defense and better defensive rotations…He also has to make He also has to make sure that every @Lakers players role is defined. The @Lakers big men have to stop giving up easy offensive rebounds…the perimeter players have to start getting back on defense to stop the fast breaks of their opponents! .@MettaWorldPeace has to stop making great quotes and start playing great defense…@JMeeks20 has to start making better shot selections. .@KobeBryant is having a an MVP type season but the team needs him to be a better leader…@SteveNash scoring more and throwing more assists will help the @Lakers! .@DwightHoward has to stop complaining and start dominating on offense….@PauGasol has to stop playing soft and get back to 18pts & 10rebs! I’m tired of blaming the coach, the responsibility is on the @Lakersplayers. A total of 9 tweets, each one more vocal than the next from a very livid Lakers legend Mr. Magic Johnson. As the Lakers season continues to derail, I’m guessing that the last thing they needed on top of everything else was get an earful and more from Mr. Lakers himself.
