Magic Johnson: “You’ve Got To Have Someone Helping Jim”

Magic Johnson is arguably the best Laker of all-time and that has given him the right to voice his opinion. Johnson is not content with the current state of the Lakers and has voiced his displeasure numerous times about owner, Jim Buss. The Lakers are currently 14-24 and one of the worst teams in the NBA, but injuries have been a major problem this season.

Johnson is concerned the Lakers are not attracting high-level talent to Los Angeles and the Lakers need someone like Jerry West to be the face of the franchise according to Mike James of the LA Times:

“You’ve got to have someone helping Jim. He’s got to quit trying to prove a point to everybody that he can do it on his own, get his ego out of it, and just say, ‘Let me get someone beside me to help achieve the goals I want.’ “

Johnson has been very critical of the decisions Buss has made in the past, including the hiring of Mike D’Antoni and the Steve Nash deal. Johnson believes Buss needs someone by his side to help him achieve those championship aspirations and used the Miami Heat as a prime example with Pat Riley running their basketball operations.

Johnson likes the job general manager Mitch Kupchak has done so far, but understands that he is not the only one who makes basketball decisions. In order to be successful, Magic ultimately feels that Buss needs to find someone who can help him win more championships moving forward.
