VIDEO: Magic Johnson Blasts Mike D’Antoni On Tonight Show With Leno

Ever since head coach Mike D’Antoni took over for Mike Brown last season, Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson hasn’t been happy with the storied NBA franchise and the decision makers in the front office.

Magic has publicly expressed his disappointment in the recent decisions made by the team, especially passing over Phil Jackson for D’Antoni, and continued to throw the Lakers under the bus on Monday during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The five-time NBA champion had no problem telling Jay Leno that the decision to bring in D’Antoni was a bad one. Magic emphasized the lack of defense being taught by D’Antoni and the fact he’s not a championship-caliber head coach.

The former face of the franchise also chimed in on the current face of the Lakers, Kobe Bryant. Magic agreed that Bryant deserves the lucrative two-year contract extension he recently signed, but stressed that Jim Buss needs to make a move in free agency this summer.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony were all mentioned by the Lakers legends as potential targets for the team if they become available. Interesting to hear Magic comment on Anthony coming to the Lakers after suggesting the superstar should stay with the New York Knicks on Sunday on Twitter.

Along with bashing the Lakers for bad decisions and poor defense, Magic also chimed in on fellow NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman and his connection to North Korea. Needless to say, Magic isn’t a fan of Rodman’s recent antics overseas.
