Twitter Resurfaces Old Magic Johnson Tweets Praising D’Angelo Russell

This afternoon the Los Angeles Lakers traded away 21-year-old point guard D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez and 27th pick in the draft. The move came as a surprise to many in Laker Land considering Lopez doesn’t fit their current system and team president Magic Johnson has praised Russell as a “future superstar” on Twitter several times.

Laker nation, D’Angelo Russell wasn’t as good as Magic was letting on because he probably wouldn’t have traded him for often injured center Brook Lopez.
