Magic Johnson

Magic Johnson takes some shots at LeBron James. Playfully.


Old school NBA players do not really like how LeBron James has handled his business. They also don’t really like the lockout. Or the long shorts. All those young players today need to GET OFF MY LAWN!

Magic Johnson was out doing the inspirational speaking thing the other day in Albany, New York (remember your state capitals game), when a few digs he took at LeBron got caught on camera (via Eye on Basketball). Ones like:

“There will always be great players in basketball. There’s always going to be guys who win championships in the NBA. Except LeBron.”

Don’t be mad, he’s just playing. “I love the young man though. I know he’s going to get better this year in the fourth quarter.”

Sounds to me like it’s in good fun. But Magic just made LeBrons book of enemies.

Somebody is in midseason form.

Stephen Curry put up 30 on Portland in a preseason game Thursday night, hitting six threes and getting to the line 15 times over the course of his less than 26 minutes. It was quite a show.

Portland won the game 118-101 behind 25 points from Allen Crabbe and 22 from Damian Lillard. Not a lot of defense in this one but it was fun to watch.

Anthony Bennett moves around, dunks on Lakers’ Upshaw (VIDEO)

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.
