Lakers Hall-of-Famer Magic Johnson has struck headlines again! Earvin “Magic” Johnson and a group of fellow investors will ante up $2.15 billion for the L.A. team. The Dodgers drew less than 3 million fans for the first time since 1995. Hopefully the new ownership will bring back interest in some good old-fashioned American baseball!
Magic is obviously hugely popular within the Los Angeles community. In an interview with USA Today, Dodgers outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. says of Johnson, ”He better get his hand ready because there’ll be 25 guys in here holding basketballs ready to be signed. I’m probably more pumped than anybody in this room because I’m the biggest Laker fan in the world.”
Do you think Magic will help this bankrupt team turn around?
