Job well done.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 15, 2019Johnson might not be over the alleged “backstabbing” from Pelinka.center_img NBA reacts to Lakers acquiring Anthony Davis “Great job by Owner Jeanie Buss bringing Anthony Davis to the Lakers!” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “Laker Nation, the Lakers are back in a championship hunt!
