I get concerned at the thought of Magic and his group owning the Clippers.
Should the Buss family court Magic into a stronger ownership stake (than what he had previously), with an ultimate plan to sell out to him, or should they welcome him into the building as Clippers owner?
The thought of Magic owning the Clippers makes me shudder. They are already more talented, and the league has more competitive balance. They don't have the history, or the volume of revenue streams, but it's not like the blue print isn't there for how to generate money with an NBA team in LA.
The toughest part might be the fact that Magic knows the Clippers are cheaper. If the Clippers sell for $1 billion, what are the Lakers worth? $2.5 billion? $3 billion?
I'm not sure he would want to buy the Lakers if he can get the Clippers for 1/3 to 1/2 the price.
