This Thursday, the Los Angeles Lakers made news when they completed a trade with the Utah Jazz to acquire seasoned guard Patrick Beverley.

Magic Johnson, a Lakers legend, expressed his initial reaction to Beverley joining his former team shortly after the trade was announced.

Johnson stated that he used to despise Patrick Beverley when he played against his Los Angeles Lakers but now he admires him because he is a member of our team.

On this point, the majority of Los Angeles fans agree with Johnson.

Beverley isn't a fan favourite, but he's a scrappy defender who understands how to positively impact a team's culture.

Some fans were initially opposed to the trade, but after reading Johnson's tweet, they may reconsider.

The Lakers are sending Talen Horton-Tucker and Stanley Johnson to the Jazz as part of this trade.

Beverley averaged 9.2 points, 4.6 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game in 2021-22.

 Beverley was a strong voice for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
