  • Is it just me, or does it seem like Magic has nothing nice to say about the Lakers team? Good grief Magic, didn't your momma ever teach you that if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all. With your history in the Laker's organization, you should be ashamed of yourself. Why don't you focus on your new toy for a while...the Dodgers. Leave the Lakers and their fans alone!

I guess your "momma" didn't teach you either!
  • I respect Magic Johnson. As a sportsman myself, and being on different teams all through school, elementary, Jr. High and High School. I don't ever remember having a coach "not" tell it like it is. A good coach, or owner who cares about his team will do that. He will rip his team. Maybe not in public, but if you win, you get praise, if you lose you will hear it, and you should. This new era of praise the loser team has got to end. It does not teach kids how to handle problems in life. If you don't perform well at your job, your boss can choose to fire you. Usually they don't sweet talk you, neither does the bill collector. Life is tough, and if you need someone to knock you around a little until you get it, and play well as a team, then you deserve it.
  • Listen, with the money those players get paid they should learn to control their emotions. They are paid to control their game, and themselves. When they get out on the court, the focus should be the team always. That's what being a team player is all about. That's why Kobe excells, because he puts the team first.
  • I would have to say that Howard is by far the worst center/player the Lakers have you never know what or who your going to get on any given night mommas boy need to go some were that has baby sitting services.
