Magic Johnson blasts Lakers in epic Twitter rant

magic johnsonMagic Johnson has become surprisingly critical of the Los Angeles Lakers over the past year, and the franchise legend went after several of the team’s players during a Twitter rant on Monday.

Few players were spared from Magic’s criticism. During his Hit ‘Em Up 2Pac style rant, Johnson told Dwight Howard to stop complaining, called Pau Gasol soft, and said Kobe needed to be a better leader.

Magic’s total body count for the rant included: five All-Stars, one coach, all the bigs, and the rest of the team’s reserves.

Here’s what he wrote on Twitter:

Some of his criticism was so lengthy it didn’t fit into a 140-character tweet. Those included his criticism of the team’s big men and perimeter players, as well as Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash:

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!

@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!

Once he was done ripping everyone, Magic told the players to have fun and reminded them that they’re embarrassing such a storied franchise:

That’s some quality encouragement, Magic.

That big rant came on Monday. Johnson then turned his attention to one of the team’s executives on Tuesday — Jim Buss — who has become one of his favorite punching bags.

Goodness, Magic, you’re acting just like a typical disgruntled fan. What are you going to do when the Lakers miss the playoffs this season?
