They should take him back. He's been apart of so much success in a front office role.

 

1. Creates the 80s Lakers dynasty

2. Manages to get Shaq and Kobe on the same team, along with Phil! Leading to another dynasty

3. Goes to Memphis, and turns them into a playoff team. 

4. Goes to the Warriors, who hadn't won anything in decades, and now all of a sudden they break the wins record.

 

This isn't a coincidence people. Whatever that man touches turns to gold. We need him. I'd fire Magic and Pelinka in a heart beat to get him back.

Yeah, remember when Magic was criticizing Jim Buss? 

"[He's] trying to do it himself, trying to prove to everybody that this was the right decision, that 'my dad gave me the reins,' and he's not consulting anybody," Johnson said on ESPN's "First Take."

"His father was smart enough to understand that, you know? 'I can own the team, but I don't have the basketball expertise to make those decisions, so let me bring in Jerry West,' " said Johnson.


Yeah, so what happened to that Magic? Or does it not apply to you now.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Magic was a fantastic player, but he is a businessman now.  so flip flop is to be expected.  and i won't be surprised that he's ultimate goal is to buy out Lakers.
