Magic Johnson has had enough with the Lakers ... saying the team's performance is so pathetic, he's embarrassed to be associated with the organization.

After Kobe Bryant and the Lake Show got blown out by the Boston Celtics 95 -116 last night, Magic went to Twitter and vented about his ex-team:

"Not sure if I was embarrassed for this Lakers team or embarrassed to be a former Laker, because of how they played against our rivals the Celtics last night."

And to add salt to the wound ... Magic followed up by giving props to Celtics star Kevin Garnett -- "Congrats to Kevin Garnett for scoring over 25,000 career points!"

Somewhere, Larry Bird is smiling.

As a Lakers fan of 33 years all I can say, is yes, Magic is right to an extent. However, it's driven by the fact that Kobe is the greatest Laker; not Magic. Kobe is not as likable, but if this team was winning, Magic would not want to see Kobe win number 6! It's easy to kick them while they're down.

Magic Johnson isn't a bad looking guy. Why'd you have to put a pic up there where he looks like Mighty Joe Young?

Shouldn't Magic be worrying about the Dodgers right now and explain to their fans why Ned Colletti still has a job as a GM?

The lakers has alway been a team with stars and all-stars...Looks like they're down to thier last star, Kobe Bryant....And for the first time in my life this worst team the Lakers have ever had...I like Kobe's optimism...but hes gotta know deep down that this isnt a championship team...face it Laker nation, unless your team can get a Kevin Durant or a LeBron James, i do believe the its the end of an heckuva run at being in the Limelight

I like what Jim Buss is doing/has done with the Lakers -


Magic oughta be more concerned with the weight he's putting on and the size he now is.


The guy's a tank.

@ Magic

Do us all a big favor, Earvin.


Worry more about the Dodgers -


Less about the Lakers.


The Lakers are on a 3-1 road trip - ran into an admittedly hot Celtic team last night.

Most of you probably dont understand why hes talking like that. Everyone and I mean everyone on that team, including Kobe, look up to magic as one of the greatest lakers of all time. I guarantee that when he talks, they listen. They dont have a big azz statue of him out on chic Hearn lane for nothing. He's letting them know how dissapointed he is with the way theyre playing and righfully so. He'd frustrated, hell, alot of us out here are. Were used to excellence, not just so so and we get pissed when our lakers play at this low level. Magic is just trying to light a fire under their azzes...hope it works
