Magic Johnson Shouldn't Stop Complaining About State of Los Angeles Lakers

There are few people that can bash the Los Angeles Lakers without serious backlash. Magic Johnson is one of those people. That will happen, when you lead the Lakers to five championships.

The things Magic has said lately, definitely raised a few eyebrows in the basketball world. He basically called the hiring of Mike D’Antoni a big mistake and also called out the Lakers for what they are right now – a mess.

Here’s what this feels like:

Walter Sobchak: Am I wrong?

The Dude: No you’re not wrong.

Walter Sobchak: Am I wrong?

The Dude: You’re not wrong Walter. You’re just an ***hole. 

So even though Magic is right on the money with his assessment of the Lakers, it seems like he thinks he may have gone too far.

While I’m sure there are some Lakers fans that are glad Johnson is keeping his thoughts to himself from now on, I’m also sure that there are lots of fans who wish he would keep on talking. Big changes are need in L.A., there’s really no doubt about it. What better person to say that changes need to be made than Mr. Laker? He should be leading the charge for change, rather than just rolling with the current mediocre-at-best product.

Maybe after an abysmal second half of the season, Magic will change his mind. Lakers fans can only hope.
