HBO’s comedic take on the rise of the NBA’s most winning team hasn’t got the endorsement of one of their most legendary players.
TMZ caught up with Magic Johnson and asked about his thoughts on the upcoming series “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty”, starring John C. Reilly as late team owner Jerry Buss.
Referring to two other upcoming projects, including one he’s directly involved with, Johnson said, “No, we got different shows coming out. I got one, then you got Jeanie Buss got one on Showtime coming out.”
He added, “Those are the ones I’m looking forward to.”
As for the HBO series, Johnson said simply, “I’m not looking forward to it. I’m going to leave it at that.”
“Winning Time”, which premieres in March, also stars Quincy Isaiah as Magic Johnson.
