If you don’t follow Magic Johnson on Twitter, you may not know that the team who scores the most points in basketball wins the game.
Johnson has become notorious for tweeting the most obvious sports related observations that a fourth grader could recite, chiming in on everything from his Dodgers to his alma mater Michigan State to the Lakers.
But Johnson's tweets have garnered plenty of attention this NBA Finals for being insultingly bland and incredibly cliche. Forget the Magic nickname, if Johnson keeps this up we're going to have to start calling him Captain Obvious.
After another incredible performance by LeBron James that forced Game 7, Magic alerted his 3.07 million followers that the King is not half bad at basketball.
LeBron James was fantastic, marvelous, sensational, incredible...What else can I say?! He scored 41pts, 8reb, 11ast.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 17, 2016
Thanks for your enlightening us all about LeBron’s stat line when millions and millions of people watched it. It’s like he’s running ESPN’s Stats and Info account.
You would think one of the greatest players in the sport’s history, and one who used to work as an ESPN analyst, would give a little more insight than this after Game 6:
If Cleveland is going to win Game 7, LeBron and Kyrie have to be special like they were in Game 5.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 17, 2016
Is he right? Yes. But Magic, we want to learn from you! Magic makes it seem like anyone can go out there and do what Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson have been doing all series long.
He did the same thing after Game 5, where LeBron had his first of back-to-back 41-point games, as well as Kyrie Irving dropping the same.
Kyrie & LeBron were special tonight both scoring 41pts to lead the Cavs in the Game 5 win.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 14, 2016
Wow, Magic, I thought that they were average. Thank you for telling us they were special.
He even bragged about his oh so high basketball IQ after Game 4, when he said what every basketball fan ever was saying simultaneously.
I said Steph & Klay had to have big games and they did scoring 38pts & 25pts respectively to lead the Warriors in the 108-97 Game 4 win.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 11, 2016
And how about more breaking news from Earvin "Magic" Johnson? You are not going to believe THIS about the 73-9 Golden State Warriors.
When Steph & Klay are playing great together the Warriors are a hard team to beat.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 11, 2016
And more from Captain Obvious.
The Golden State Warriors' role players led them to the 104-89 victory in Game 1 of the NBA Finals!— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) June 3, 2016
The good thing going for Magic is that with these tweets, he is never wrong. Kind of like this guy.
Draymond Green, who led GSt in plus-minus in reg-season and playoffs, was hugely missed tonight on both ends.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) June 14, 2016
