Magic Johnson Calling Game Highlights For ESPN Was A Big Failure (Video)
In an attempt to spice up their NBA coverage, ESPN put together a studio team consisting of Magic, Jon Barry, Chris Broussard and Mike Wilbon. That line-up may have seemed like a “slam dunk,” but instead, it has been more of an “air ball.” That was evident last night, when not even Broussard’s poor spelling could over-shadow the catastrophe that unfolded when Magic Johnson was asked to provide commentary for the Lakers vs. Jazz game highlights.
While a part of me would love to insult Johnson’s cue card reading abilities (or inabilities), another part of me remains unsure as to whether I can even consider that to be “reading” at all. Instead, it sounds more like a mixture of confusion and verbal diarrhea.
Sorry Magic! We still love you, but perhaps commentary isn’t your thing.
