Magic Johnson will forever be one of the greatest players to ever wear the purple and gold. He will always be synonymous with the Lakers organization for everything he has brought to the franchise.

Recently, however, Johnson has been critical of the franchise. He went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and criticized the team. He even left current Laker Legend Kobe Bryant off of a list of greats who could carry their team. Tonight, Johnson took to twitter to pledge his support to the Lakers organization:

It is not uncommon for players to talk about their former teams and even criticize them, but, with Johnson, the criticism was beginning to become so consistent, it seemed as if Johnson was going out of his way. Nonetheless, Johnson seems to have realized that he may have overstepped his boundaries:

 

It’s good to see that Johnson has realized his errors and basically apologized for them. He also complimented coach Mike D’Antoni for his offensive success this season. Johnson is one of the faces of, not only the Lakers, but the NBA as a whole and his voice and opinion hold a lot of weight in basketball circles.

Johnson will always be Lakers family and it is nice to see that he and the team are back on the same page.
