Magic Johnson doesn't have a reputation as a "bully" in the Dodgers organization -- at least according to Justin Turner who tells TMZ Sports, "He's been great to me."
Johnson has been under fire over an ESPN report which dove into the dysfunction within the L.A. Lakers organization -- it painted Magic as a jerk who would often berate his staff.
One staffer told ESPN, "He used intimidation and bullying as a way of showing authority."
Since Magic is co-owner of the L.A. Dodgers -- we asked Turner if he's had any similar experiences with his boss.
"I love Magic," the Dodgers 3rd baseman said at Philippe's restaurant in L.A. ... "Been great to me."
Turner was doing a promotional event at Philippe's -- which is an L.A. institution because it was opened back in 1908 by Philippe Mathieu, the guy who claims he invented the French Dipped Sandwich!!!
So, the takeaway from this story ... JT loves Magic and if you're in L.A., GO TO PHILIPPE'S AND GET THAT BOMB-ASS FRENCH DIP!
