Magic takes command of the sports management franchise. With this, Mitch Kupchak has been relieved. Jim Buss, the former vice president, also leaves his post. "Earvin, Luke and our new general manager will set the next generation that lives up to the grandeur of the Los Angeles Lakers," said Jeanie Buss. Jeanie also says that the intention is to get everyone who works in the Lakers row in the same direction to re-compete and win NBA championships.

Magic and the Lakers

magic johnson got absolutely everything in the Los Angeles Lakers and, although he does not need to declare his evident love for the franchise, he wanted to emphasize how happy he is for this new stage.

"It is a dream come true to return to the Lakers as president of basketball operations and working closely with Jeanie Buss and the Buss family," says Magic, exposing the passion he has with this new work.

"Since 1979 I have been the Laker generation." "We will work with Luker Walton tirelessly to give back to our Lakers the right to be NBA champions," concluded the new president of the franchise. The less beautiful part of Magic Johnson's nomination as the new president of the LA Lakers is the franchise's leaving staff. Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss are joined by John Black (Vice President of Public Relations) and Tim Harris.

Magic and Larry Bird (two directors)

With this move, Los Angeles Lakers complete a new makeover of the franchise lacking 24 games to end the season.

Curiously, Magic has the same position that began Larry Bird from the season 2013-2014 directing to the Pacers. Both players were one of the biggest rivalries of the 80's, both icons in their respective teams (Los Angeles and Celtics).

Larry is a good director for the Indiana Pacers. He has obtained good results and has managed to sign good players for the franchise. If the Lakers get to have the Indiana Pacers level in recent years, it would be great news for all Lakers fans.
