Clippers fans disrespect Lakers legend, hang balloons from Magic Johnson statue

With the Los Angeles Clippers recent rise in the West, there has naturally been a growing animosity between the fanbases that share Staplers Center.

Saturday night Clippers’ fans did nothing to help that tension, as they decided to hang balloons with Clippers’ colors from the Magic Johnson statue that sits outside the arena.

Johnson, in a typical fashion, simply laughed at the incident. However Los Angeles Lakers fans were not nearly as forgiving, erupting across the social media spectrum stating it was “disrespectful” and “classless”.

You can see an image of the ‘re-decorated’ statue here.

So, fair play or too far?
