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.

SAY IT AIN'T SO
Phil Jackson was in the running to get the Lakers job midseason, but he reportedly now says he has no intention of coaching again.
Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is out indefinitely with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, while forward Pau Gasol is out with a concussion, according to ESPN.
"I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go," Howard said after the Lakers' 112-105 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Click Link Below to Read Story!
Although it seems pretty bad, Dwight Howard is saying his shoulder injury isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The Los Angeles Lakers announced that Howard had a torn labrum in his shoulder, but Howard clarified yesterday. He said the injury is actually a separation from the bone - still a tear, though in medical terms.Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles says...
Magic Johnson, Steve Nash and Chris Paul star in the new “Unbelievable is BIG” commercial where Clippers point guard Cp3 is “the disappearing act”:
Just so everyone is aware, the Los Angeles Lakers lost, again. They were beat up by the Rockets and their problem may have been due to the lineup they put out on the court. The team is missing Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol, and we all know that Kobe Bryant can be a ball-hog at times, but this was taking it to another level. For what it is worth, this was Chris Webber’s suggestion H/T Game On!
The Los Angeles Lakers are not doing well. They are continually losing as they attempt to find their ways, if possible. The future of being in the NBA Playoffs this coming Spring 2013 is not looking too bright at the moment. At first they blamed their coach and he got [...]
Things are not going as planned this season for the Los Angeles Lakers, and fans are none too pleased. The Lakeshow have managed a paltry 15-18 record even with the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. While we believe that it is easily no one player which is the root of the problem, this plea to have Gasol fired is pretty phenomenal. The icing on the cake is the Sarah McLachlan...
We’re one happy family T…
Lakers star Kobe Bryant had a bit of fun with his newly formed Twitter account yesterday. A report surfaced that Kobe and Dwight almost came to blows after another frustrating loss, so Kobe shot out the pic above. No better way to squash a rumor than to make fun of it. Definitely funnier than their current #11 spot in the Western Conference.-TO
The Dwight Howard experiment has gone very wrong in LA, so far. Is it because of his back, the coach, Kobe or Dwight himself is anyone’s guess.
It could be a combination of all that.
Things will go from bad to worse if his shoulder injury is anything serious. Here is what Dwight had to say.
“I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go,”...
Funny stuff. Somebody remixed Sarah McLachlan’s PSA for the ASPCA into a PSA for trading Pau Gasol. The video has gone viral over the last 48 hours and is guaranteed to make you laugh:
Kobe Bryant vs. Dwight Howard
So much for the rumored fight between Los Angeles Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. Bryant posted this photo to his Twitter page today.
"The mamba vs d12 !! It's on lol," Bryant wrote.
How dare they put Mike D'Antoni in the middle. Can we get this signed for WrestleMania, Vince McMahon?
While Metta World Peace tried to do his part, the Los Angeles Lakers couldn't overcome the loss of three frontcourt players, including a pair of All-Stars, during their opener to a brief road trip through Texas.
The Lakers will attempt to end that two-game trek on a more positive note Wednesday night but have the daunting task of trying to snap the San Antonio Spurs' 10...
