Former Los Angeles Lakers executive and star player Magic Johnson was not impressed by the team's performance in Saturday's 133-96 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Johnson tweeted his displeasure with the lack of effort displayed by the Lakers, saying that the franchise and its fans deserve more from the players.

Russell Westbrook shared a similar sentiment when he told reporters, including Lakers Nation's Ryan Ward, that "teams are just playing harder than us."

However, Westbrook did push back against the Hall of Famer's tweet in his postgame comments, stating that Johnson is "entitled to his opinion" but isn't around the team to see what's really going on.

The Lakers fell below .500 with the loss, their third straight, putting them just half a game ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers for seventh place in the Western Conference.
