This isn’t a new flash and younger fans of the Lakers might not see what the big deal is, but this won’t sit well with older Lakers fans.
In 1984 Magic Johnson had an awful NBA Finals against the Celtics. Crucial turnovers and miscues that helped cost them the series.
In the offseason he was labeled “Tragic Johnson”. That never sat well with Magic and he came back uber motivated to prove people wrong which he did.
Dwight was trying to tell a joke, but for the 100th time it fell flat.
Dwight Howard joked he will start at point guard with Nash's possible absence. Howard called himself "Tragic Johnson"

I am going to start calling Dwight, Nick Anderson until he gets his free throw shooting together.
