The Los Angeles Lakers' season through Magic Johnson's tweets

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Relive all the ups and downs through the Twitter account of the team's biggest fan.

So, Magic Johnson gave up on the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday. Here's his confirmation from his Twitter account:

Big whoop. Magic's done this all year. For confirmation, here's what he tweeted four days ago:

And here's what he tweeted a day before that:

And then there's this from a week before that:

But two days before that, he was singing a different tune:

But on that very same day, he switched gears:

That was preceded by another angry rant:

Of course, two weeks before that, Johnson was giddy:

That tweet came after Johnson boycotted the team because they were playing so poorly.

That tweet was the simple follow-up of a bolder declaration made one day earlier:

Four days before that, he wanted answers:

A week before that, he issued a challenge to his favorite team:

And a week before that, he vented about a difficult loss:

But eight days prior to that, Johnson was all ready to eat some crow:

Why eat crow? Because of this tweet, 16 days prior:

That came after Mike Brown got fired:

Before Brown got fired, Johnson was on high alert:

That anger was there even after the very first game of the season:

But of course, Johnson wasn't concerned a week earlier:

Basically, Johnson is a fan just like the rest of us. He finds the silver lining in the bad and overreacts to the good, but lives all the ups and downs. He'll be back, don't you worry.
