A new video over on Yahoo (embedded below) shows Magic blasting his Lakers. Good motivation? Bad timing? Your thoughts…?

  • PauKobeBynumOdomDynasty

    How can u…dawg09, call Johnson Magic “Fc kin” Johnson? Thats totally unacceptable…he was trying to motivate the team….this is probably wut Kobe tells his team too

  • Michael24

    uhhhhh ohhhh

    someone pissed off mr.showtime

    magic is right


    The GREATEST laker ever is right man. He’s a great competitors and he wants to see his Lakers try like he would try. No doubt even now he would contribute more than half of our current players. Go Lakers.

  • jonny

    as much as he’s right, magic talking about defense rings a bit hollow to me

    Agree with you DC, NBA is all about $


    Magic,did you really see the same game WE ALL AT LAKERNATION SAW?

  • lamlamboy

    what the heck is “out-physicaled ” ….is that a real word?
    the whole clip seems staged……if he were truely mad…Magic would have put some real thoughts into his words and made it appear more urgent….looks like a motivation plot….hope it works tonite….they need to get on their ass….they arent playing the Nets in the finals!!!

  • RoWyN

    I agree with Magic. I also agree that game 2 referees influenced the result of the game severely.

    But having said that, the Lakers couldn’t afford, at this stage to give away a game because of the refs. If the refs are gonna call the game against the lakers, so be it. At the end of this series, it’s their legacy on the line. Two words for the team — WANT IT!

    Try to win the game without the REFS help is all I’m saying. If you don’t get the W, then tough luck. But if you do, tell them to SUCK UR D**K!

  • Thomas

    He was 100% right on everything. The Lakers are not playing with a purpose, they are going soft to the hole, letting Ray Allen and especially Paul Pierce get wide open looks at the basket. If they can do these things they will win against Boston.

    Magic knows whats up with the Lakers and how they play. Magic is right.

    We fans know whats up with the G@y Refs killing the game since the beginning.
    Now its time for the ones who are going to the GAME to freakin pop the ear drums of the celtics with some yelling and make them nervous as FAuck on every shot. Make them think they are down 2-0.

    Lakers All the way.
    every day
    what can i say
    celtics are ga…..
    on every play

  • kb24mvp

    you tell em magic

    he should go and say this to them in tha locker room for real!


    Just as I thought, NO ONE SAW THE SAME GAME.I guess some you thought the Clippers were in the Finals,’cause that’s how The Refs saw it.

    How agressive to you want them to be? When they attack the basket they get called for,as Mark and Van Gundy said,TICK-TACK FOULS,and Magic says play harder,THEY DID!

  • Sam

    Magic’s right about the Lakers in the first two games. They did a much better job in game 3 but they need to rebound better.

  • ab4sure

    Magic knows basketball…. PERIOD.

  • yash

    Amen Magic, Amen!!!

  • west213

    Yep thats all D truth… lamar u pencil neck snap out of your blazing and get back to the series.

  • kobw-wan kenobi

    magic is right
    we cant win anything with lo and pow playing so soft
    too bad…another year of blame kobe is coming soon, even though he cant do more than what he is doing
    lo + pow + turiaf + rad = bunch of soft losers
    cant win with that

  • LALA

    Phil needs to play this for one of his motivational movies. He is 100% right and maybe Odom and Gasol need to hear this coming from the mouth of a 5 time champion.

  • Smush Walton

    Magic is right. I bet Jerry West would say the same thing. Both of them played with passion not like most of our current players.
