Mike Brown Responds to Magic Johnson’s Comments

On ESPN last night Magic Johnson had some bold words for the Lakers and their head coach Mike Brown. Basically, if the Lakers lose this series to the Nuggets after holding a 3-1 lead, he believes Brown and several key players will be run out of town.

Now, Brown has responded to Johnson’s comments via Mark Medina of the L.A. Times.

Brown’s concern right now seems to be where it should be – focusing on Game 7 rather than what the talking heads are saying in the media. However, Johnson’s obvious connections to the Lakers organization makes this a little more surprising than if the comments had come from someone more disconnected from the situation.
