Revisiting Poolgate

Kasten called Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick to apologize for how the Dodgers celebrated in the pool at Chase Field on the day they won the NL West, according to Johnson.

Johnson was initially reluctant to revisit the controversy.

"Really?" Johnson said. "Really? Do you really want me to stand here to really talk about the pool celebration in Arizona? Really? That's your best question to Magic Johnson?"

Yes, Johnson was told.

"Man, I've seen worse things happen," Johnson said. "That wasn't nothing. Guys have jumped on tables, they've done a lot of things in the NBA on other people's courts. To me, I've seen it all. We apologized, but I'm happy for my players. I will always support them. I supported them after they did it. We apologized and we moved on."

Walter also saw nothing wrong with the celebration.

"It looked like nobody was there," Walter said of how the stadium was nearly empty at the time.

Asked if he would have jumped into the pool with his players had he been there, Walter laughed.

"That's a good question," he said. "I don't know."
