The Lakers sent a press release out regarding the recent purchase of the Los Angeles Dodgers by former Lakers superstar legend, Magic Johnson:
“Magic Johnson is probably the most beloved sports figure in Los Angeles history,” said Buss. “In addition to being a phenomenal success on the court in leading the Lakers to five NBA Championships, he has been a success in everything else he’s become involved with, most notably his spectacular business career and also his educational campaign on behalf of HIV awareness. I’d like to congratulate Magic and his partners on their acquisition of the Dodgers and wish them the best of luck.”
Considering their long-time friendship ever since Magic arrived in Los Angeles from Lansing, Michigan, I’m sure Dr. Buss is as proud as anyone of Magic’s success.
