Magic Johnson finally gets over the Lakers not hiring Phil Jackson
After spending the past week criticizing Mike D'Antoni's hire as Lakers coach both on Twitter and on ESPN, Magic Johnson wants to stop lamenting Phil Jackson getting passed over for the position.
"You have to let D'Antoni get in there and wait and see what's going to happen," Johnson said in an interview with this newspaper. "It's too bad it's not Phil. That's who I wanted. But Jim Buss and Mitch made a decision. We as Lakers fans just have to see how it works out."
