Anthony Davis is one popular guy.

News of the New Orleans Pelicans’ reported agreement to trade the 26-year-old star forward to the Los Angeles Lakers broke Saturday evening. And, of course, it didn’t take long for the Twitter-sphere to react.

In fact, it down-right erupted.

Even former Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson chimed in on the situation, first by congratulating owner Jeanie Buss, the Lakers organization and Lakers nation as a whole.

Free agency, by the way, doesn’t even begin until June 30.
