Lakers in Magic’s Hands
Magic Johnson has been named president of basketball operations for the Lakers. The Lakers are currently 19-39 and are having their 4th straight losing season. The team has completely cleaned house and doesn’t even have a Gm with 2 days left till the trade deadline.
Johnson is one of the best basketball players to play the game, and has been in multiple ownership groups since leaving the league. Last week Magic said that if he had control of the team the first call he would make would be ex-Laker Kobe Bryant.
We will see what happens in time, but the Lakers now have a real basketball mind leading the way.
