Miami Heat owner Micky Arison is not afraid to say what is on his mind and poke jabs at other teams and other owners. Last night he took a shot at Magic Johnson in a quite excellent job at trolling.
Magic has decided to make one of Arison’s player, LeBron James, his “cause”. He is using James unwillingness to participate in the dunk contest as a way of question James giving back to the fans. To that end, he has offered James $1 million to participate next year.
So Arison decided to have some fun with Magic on twitter. Early in the day, Magic took the twodel approach of “RT if you want to see LeBron in the dunk contest.” to which Arison replied…
Then later that night, as Magic’s beloved Lakers were getting throttled by the Oklahoma City Thunder, allowing 71 points at the half, Magic tweeted out his disbelief.
Laker Nation: Really? Really?…The Thunder have 71pts at halftime! Really?

To which Arison had this quick and biting response. A truly masterful troll.
Well played Mr. Arison, well played.
