Why can't we be friends?
Magic Johnson took to Twitter to apologize to Laker Nation for his recent critical outburts of coach Mike D'Antoni and the overall poor play of the 16-30 squad.
The Lakers' Hall-of-Famer, also part-owner of the Dodgers, said, among other things, that he would stop with the negativity.
On Monday, during an appearance on "The Tonight Show", Johnson said that he couldn't stand to watch the Lakers play because "they don't teach defense" and "the same play happens every single time on the Lakers -- pick and roll and the guard goes all the way in for a layup.
