Magic Johnson Reacts To Anthony Davis-Dwight Howard Scuffle on Lakers Bench

Magic Johnson has reacted to the Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard scuffle on the Lakers bench during the game last night. The Lakers failed to win against the Pheonix Suns last night and that was not even the biggest story of the game. Davis and Howard got into it on the bench and it caught the eyes of many people across the league. Both Howard and head coach Frank Vogel came out with some thoughts on it.

“Oh, yeah. We squashed it right then and there,” said Howard during the Lakers postgame press conference. “We just had a disagreement about something that was on the floor. We’re both very passionate about winning. We didn’t wanna lose this game.”

“We’re grown men. Things happen. But we already talked. Squashed it. There’s no issue between me and him. That’s my brother. That’s what I told him. … We’re good. We squashed it. There’s no need to try to try to make it bigger than something else,” continued Dwight Howard.

Now, Magic Johnson has come into the mix.

“When you’re getting your ass kicked, sometimes those conversations get heated,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “Those guys love each other. They talked it out. And that’s going to happen from time to time. I’d rather our guys care than not care.”

“It’s over with,” Davis said, explaining that the dispute was over failed execution on their pick-and-roll coverage. “After the situation happened, me and DH, we talked about it and we left it at that.”

“We’re just trying to get it together,” Howard said. “This is our second game, our second real game. And we got to get it right. I know a lot of people are counting us out already. It’s early. Lot of people laughing at us and joking, but we going to get this thing together.”

James also talked about it.

“Obviously the name of the game is to win ballgames,” he said. “But there is a process along with building something to become the team that you want to become. And I know it firsthand. I know the shortcomings that happens throughout when you’re trying to build something special, and that doesn’t happen overnight. As much as you want it, you’re going to get frustrated at times because you know what you’re capable of. You know what the team can become capable of. But it just takes time.”
