Magic Johnson says Lakers have zero chance at winning

The Los Angeles Lakers are down 0-2 in the opening playoff series heading into Game 3 versus the San Antonio Spurs, lost Steve Blake due to a hamstring injury, have a banged up Steve Nash and do not have Kobe Bryant for the rest of the season.

Things are not looking great for this Lakers team but when arguably your best player ever in franchise history, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, feels the team's playoff end is near, then you know it might be time to start thinking about vacation plans.

Magic took to Twitter to voice his opinion on his former team and from the looks of things, he feels their mounting injuries will result in L.A. doing a quick playoff-disappearing act.

And it doesn't stop there.

It is clear (at least from Games 1 and 2) that L.A.'s problems are more than just injuries (though that is huge) but they are also getting outperformed  by the Spurs' bench, their role players are stepping up, and the core of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker are looking back to form.

However, when Magic is already calling it a season for the Lakers, well, that is just not a good sign.
