Lakers News: Magic Johnson Questions Lakers Defense vs. Bulls
Magic is Not Joking Around
Magic is Not Joking Around

The Lakers lost to the Chicago Bulls last night in heartbreaking fashion. After battling to push the game into overtime, the Lakers would tie the game at 100 thanks to a Nick Young’s baseline jumper. All that was left was to get one last stop and the game would head to a second extra period.

We all know what happened next as Taj Gibson got free for a wide open layup at the buzzer and the Lakers failed to run their winning streak to three. The Lakers were clearly disappointed with the outcome, but they weren’t the only ones. Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, no stranger to voicing his opinion about the Lakers, took to twitter with his disappointment:

The Lakers defensive struggles this season are no secret. They currently rank next to last in the entire NBA in points allowed, third worst in turnovers, and dead last in rebounds allowed. With the amount of injuries the Lakers have suffered this year, it is no surprise that defense has not been their strong suit.

As one of the greatest Lakers to ever don the purple and gold, and someone who has a considerably large platform to voice his opinion, Johnson is a voice that holds a lot of weight in the Lakers community. Johnson clearly cares about the Lakers franchise and wants the team to improve as quickly as possible.
