Mike D'Antoni's wife, Laurel, takes thinly veiled shot at Lakers president Magic Johnson


The Lakers have begun enforcing the "LaVar Ball rule" in attempt to keep media from family and friends of the team.

But while Mike D'Antoni coached Los Angeles, his wife, Laurel, enjoyed talking in the same setting media is now banned.

Of course, the D'Antonis heard a lot, too - particularly from Magic Johnson. The Lakers legend frequently criticized the coach, and when D'Antoni was ousted, Johnson tweeted:

The D'Antonis returned to Los Angeles on Sunday, as Mike's first-place Rockets whooped the Lakers, whose front office Johnson now leads.

Laurel sure didn't bite her tongue.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:

Classless? Don't know, don't care.

Sweet? So, so, so sweet.
