Magic Johnson Criticizes Dwight Howard on Twitter for Ejection, Says He’s Happy Lakers’ Season Is Over

The Lakers are a mess.

Kobe Bryant‘s future is up in the air, a large part of the fan base wants head coach Mike D’Antoni out already, and then there’s the Dwight Howard situation. That situation only got more complicated as the Lakers exited the playoffs.

Not only did Howard get ejected from Sunday’s 103-82 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs, ending the Lakers’ season, but the center apparently got into an exchange with general manager Mitch Kupchak on his way to the locker room. Former Los Angeles great Magic Johnson, although busy running the Dodgers, was watching from afar, and he had some choice words for Howard on Twitter.

Johnson called out Howard for the ejection, saying the big man needed to stay on the floor to lead his team. After the game, Johnson likely spoke for all of Laker Nation, exclaiming that he was “sooooooooooo happy” that the team’s frustrating season is over.
