Magic Johnson’s stunning admission about his own tweets
Lakers Legend Magic Johnson still finds a way to make waves in the sports world today. But it’s no longer from his fancy passes to his Showtime Lakers teammates, nor is it even with his ownership stake with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He often catches the public eye on social media, most especially on Twitter.
Here’s the transcript of the exchange:
Rob Lowe: Do you know Pardon My Take? I did (their podcast). Those guys are huge fans of yours as you know, and I said look, ‘you’re the best sports podcast, I’m going to be interviewing Magic (Johnson), he’s going to be one of my first guests, do you have any questions, do you have any thoughts?’ And they’re like ‘you have to ask him, does he write his own tweets?’ And I was like what? Of all the things? Of all the things that you could ask one of the greatest men, players, but that’s what they wanted to ask, so here I am, I’m asking: Why are they obsessed with your tweets?
Magic Johnson: I don’t know. No, I have somebody write them out. I tell them what I want to say and they write them.
Lakers fans all definitely remember how Magic Johnson quit the organization, in part because he could no longer voice his opinions about the league’s comings and goings. It’s a bewildering bit of news that he wasn’t even the one writing them in the first place.
Or maybe he’s just distancing himself from tweets such as these?
Let's give Mitch Kupchak & Jim Buss a chance as I know they have a plan.

Great move by Phil Jackson, James Dolan & Steve Mills, hiring Derek Fisher as the new head coach for the New York Knicks!
