The Los Angeles Lakers are finally going to get some magic their way. Jeanie Buss, part owner and president of the Lakers, laid down the hammer yesterday by hiring Earvin “Magic” Johnson as president of basketball operations. This meaning Jim Buss has been fired. Im still slightly confused of this. Jim Buss is part owner of the team. He can get fired? Thats some bullshit. Not bullshit that he was fired, because he needed to be fired years ago, but how a part owner can be fired from his job is mind boggling to me. Someone who signs a guy by the name of Timofey Mozgov to a $64 million dollar contract needed to be immediately let go and slapped in the face. Such a solid pick up there Mr. Buss. Well, Magic Johnson is here for the rescue. He stated weeks ago that if he were to get the job of president of basketball operations, his first call would be to Kobe Bryant. It’s going to take a lot more than Kobe Bryant to get this team back to what it once was. The only thing promising for the Lakers is Brandon Ingram. Every one else looks like a train wreck. Speaking of train wreck, what in the hell is Metta World Peace doing still playing basketball. Averaging a whopping 1 point a game and just under 4 minutes of play time. How is he even getting 4 minutes on the court, Luke Walton? He has got to go. If you look up and down the Lakers bench, you can’t help but scratch your head and think how it got to this point. They hung on to the Kobe train as long as humanly possible and totally forgot that he was going to call it quits one day. Well this is what you get. A shitty team. The Los Angeles Lakes, sitting a half a game out of last place in the western conference, is in need of some serious help from Magic. I think its great hire. I think Magic and the pieces he puts in place in the front office will get this team back to what it once was. It will surely take some time, but you can’t count out Magic and the possible return of Kobe in the front office. The bright side to the whole thing is, they don’t have Vlade Divac running the team. That big Andre the Giant sound alike, has lost his damn mind. What do you think happens with the Lakers? How long before you see them as a playoff contender?
