Lakers fans will be pleased to know that hall of famer Earvin Magic Johnson will be returning to the team to advise majority owner Jeanie Buss.
Jeanie Buss said in the press release that she would be thrilled to work alongside the three-time NBA champion.
“”We are thrilled and honored to add Magic’s expertise and abilities, and I look forward to working alongside him.”
As being an advisor, Johnson will help Buss with day-to-day operations and also help in the business side as well. Johnson is a known entrepreneur in the Los Angeles area, having owned Magic Johnson Enterprises, a venture capital fund.
According to the press report, Johnson had other options, but L.A. has always been home for him.
“Over the years, I have considered other management opportunities, however, my devotion to the game and Los Angeles make the Lakers my first and only choice. I will do everything in my power to help return the Lakers to their rightful place among the elite teams in the NBA.”
