LOS ANGELES Its been said that you expect more from the ones that you loveand theres no doubt that Magic Johnson loves the Lakers.
He played for them, coached them and was a team vice president and part owner until he sold his shares in order to partner up with the new Dodger ownership group.
And his expectations for the Lakers are equalor even higherthan that of the most rabid Laker fans.
Ever since the firing of Mike Brown and subsequent hiring of new coach Mike DAntoni, Johnson has made no secret of the fact that he thinks the Buss family and Mitch Kupchak made a bad hire and should have brought back Phil Jackson to run the team.
Monday afternoon at Dodger Stadium following a news conference to introduce the newest Dodger, Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-Jin, he took his frustrations to an entirely new level. He blasted the team he says he loves, and gave it very little chance to turn around a most-disappointing season so far in 2012-13.
We have got to get back to playing solid...
