Magic Johnson appears in NBA Finals promo spot

May 12, 2011 |  4:21 pm

There's a good chance Laker fans may not see this, considering that the anguish over the team's early playoff exit may sour their want to watch the rest of the postseason. Some may not even want to watch it, considering Magic Johnson's recent suggestion that Lakers owner Jerry Buss should "blow this team up" and consider trading Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol or Lamar Odom in a package deal for Dwight Howard. But Johnson appears in an NBA Finals promo spot slated to air Thursday night during the Bulls-Hawks game where he brags about something all Lakers fans can relish. He shares sentiments with the talking NBA ball about the satisfaction he felt in beating the Boston Celtics in the 1985 and 1987 NBA Finals.
