10 tweets that should make Lakers fans nervous about Magic Johnson running the show

New, comments

Magic Johnson has never been afraid to tweet his thoughts.

The Lakers announced on Tuesday afternoon that Magic Johnson would be taking over as the president of basketball operations moving forward, relieving Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss from their duties. A week ago, Johnson announced he’d like to take over for the Lakers. This week, he got that.

So, what will it be like with Magic in charge? Going through old tweets is the best way to find out in 2017.

10. He actually liked the Bulls most recent offseason moves. What.

9. Magic Johnson is a Dion Waiters fan. Which is fine for anyone that is not a GM of an NBA team.

8. OK, he LOVES Rondo.

7. He also likes Jimmer Fredette and Jimmer just scored 73 points in China. Watch out.

6. Thank goodness the Lakers already have a great head coach in place or else Derek Fisher could have been on the way to LA.

5. He watches or at the very least watched First Take. I don’t have anything else to say about this except that I’m sorry.

4. Good news! Carmelo Anthony is going to hang the next banner in LA.

3. The Lakers future draft picks are in great hands.

2. Magic wants to bring every single NBA star to the Lakers. All of them.

1. He has the logic you need to be a great GM in the NBA. This is his all-time best tweet.

Let me be clear that Magic is one of the greatest players of all time, has a fantastic basketball IQ, and is a great business man. There are a lot of great things he can do for the franchise moving forward and we wish nothing but the best for him in doing that. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun with his tweets.

Best of luck, Lakers fans. And Magic, please tweet through it.
