Despite their best efforts, the Los Angeles Lakers were unable to convince LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony to come to Los Angeles.
One of the most noted Lakers in the team history, Magic Johnson, decided to do a little bit of praising of the Lakers organization on Twitter for trying their best to get the noted NBA stars:
Kudos to Jim Buss, @JeanieBuss & Mitch Kupchak for their pursuit of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James!

I wonder how Magic would have reacted if either had signed with the Lakers…
