Magic Johnson is arguably the greatest Laker of all time, but he has not been fond of his former team as of late. Johnson was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night and he was forthright about his feelings towards Lakers Coach Mike D’Antoni.

Johnson has been especially critical of the Lakers over the last couple of years. Today, he tweeted out a list of players who have carried their teams on their back and won which included Michaeal Jordan, Larry Bird, Kevin Durant, and Lebron Jame. However, he left Kobe Bryant off that list.

Johnson not including Bryant on that list us puzzling, but it is not surprising. Times are tough in Laker land, but Johnson’s constant bashing is not helpful. He continues to praise other players and organizations, but chooses to ignore one of the greatest players of all-time in Bryant.

The Indiana Pacers are in town to face the Lakers and Johnson is more interested in seeing Paul George put on a show at the expense of the Lakers. Johnson has no interest in rooting for this struggling Lakers team, which is disappointing given his relationship with the organization over the years.
