Magic Johnson is ‘Mourning’ the Lakers’ Decision Not to Hire Phil Jackson

Most Laker fans are still upset about the team’s decision to hire Mike D’Antoni instead of Phil Jackson — and will likely remain that way unless D’Antoni wins an NBA title with this team — but we don’t think anyone died as a result. According to Magic Johnson, he’s been in “mourning” ever since Pringles got the job. From Magic’s Twitter: “The reason I haven’t tweeted in 2 days is because I’ve been mourning Phil Jackson not being hired as the Lakers head coach. My mother always taught me that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
