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.

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.
