CSN- Following Game 7, Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson didn't miss a chance to provide his take on Clippers' playoff exit.
"I thought the Spurs taught the Clippers how to win after a tough 7 game series. I was wrong. The Clippers are still the Clippers," Johnson wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon.
Johnson also addressed the Clippers blowing a 19-point lead in Game 6.
"The Clippers organization will always remember not closing out the Rockets in Game 6 at home. That game will always haunt them," Johnson wrote.
He capped off his series of tweets about the Clippers with an assessment of the team moving forward.
"I think the Clippers must make roster changes if they want to get to the Western Conference Finals and the NBA Finals!" Johnson concluded.
"The Clippers are still the Clippers." Well golly gee, thanks Earvin, how brilliantly insightful! It's no secret that the Clippers deserve all the criticism they are getting for a collapse of epic proportions. Until they manage to at least surpass the second round of the playoffs it will always be easy to pile on to the narrative that they can't be successful. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin might as well be Darius Miles and Michael Olowokandi until they reach a conference final, because that is who the media is going to treat them as.
Hey Magic, you want to take the low hanging fruit and give the whole "some things will never change" spiel? Two can play that game. As we're on the subject of low hanging fruit how about we talk about your disease ridden genitals? The only thing that has been as consistent as the Clippers lack of success has been Magic's completely compromised immune system. Guess what Magic, we are getting to the generation that will only know you as the HIV guy, and rightfully so. Who cares that you played all 5 positions at an all star caliber level? Who cares about all the championships? Who cares that the only thing more infectious than your blood is your smile? You're just the AIDS guy. Chris Paul may be without a conference championship appearance, but at least he could find someone that wouldn't mind sharing a beer with him. Blake Griffin may have pulled a no show in game 7, but at least a girl could sleep with him without waking up in a cold sweat every night and praying 6 times a day. Even after this travesty of a series I would still rather be a Clipper than the guy that has everyone running for the hills when he gets a paper cut. The guy whose career ended early because he basically went raw dog in a cess pool is going to criticize people for not fulfilling their potential. Unbelievable. Go home Patient Zero, no one cares what happened during the good old days.
