Not only did the Dallas Mavericks embarrass the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, they embarrassed a couple of former Lakers stars.

After the Mavericks finished off the sweep, Magic Johnson said that the Lakers "embarrassed the organization" and called the fouls on Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum "classless."

Ex-Lakers star and general manager Jerry West made a Monday appearance on the Dan Patrick Show and said that he "was a little bit embarrassed."

"Not with the loss," West said. "But some of the things I saw on the floor which I thought were really just not something that a person that wears a Laker uniform should do.”

In the fourth quarter of Game 4, Dallas' J.J. Barea drove to the basket and Bynum leveled him with an elbow to the ribs. The Lakers center was immediately ejected and escorted off the floor.

Odom was ejected moments earlier for a flagrant foul against Dirk Nowitzki.
