Magic responds to Clyde Drexler's comments from Dream Team book

In a video interview with the Wall Street Journal, Magic Johnson responded to Clyde Drexler's comments from a brief excerpt of the book Dream Team that ran on Deadspin.com.

Drexler is quoted as saying: "Everybody kept waiting for Magic to die. Every time he’d run up the court everybody would feel sorry for the guy, and he’d get all that benefit of the doubt.”

Johnson told the WSJ (video below): “If that’s how he felt, then that’s how he felt. I think that Clyde was a guy that always fought for more publicity ... a guy who thought he should deserve more credit. But if he felt like that, I’m OK with it. I’m not a guy who’s going to be upset that he said these types of things."

Drexler issued a statement through the Houston Rockets, his current employer, denying having made the comments.

Author Jack McCallum, the longtime Sports Illustrated writer, called the quote accurate in a blog post, and provided more of the context surrounding the quote.
