Lakers Legend Returns To Help Team Get Back On Track
Magic Johnson is back with the Lakers!
No, the 57-year-old won't be taking up point guard duties. But he will serve an advisor to the Los Angeles franchise that he led to five NBA championships.
The Lakers officially announced Thursday that Johnson will advise the owners on both business and basketball related issues.

Bringing back Johnson is a power move my Jeannie Buss and the other front office higher-ups in the Lakers organization. Few people are more representative of the culture that has seemingly disappeared during Los Angeles's youth rebuild than Magic is.
The Lakers legend is more than qualified to help lead the purple-and-gold back to a championship pedigree and may be the perfect conduit to bridge the disconnect between the winning history of the Lakers, ownership's vision, and the players' execution on the court.
I'm excited to see if Earvin can work some magic! (Pun totally intended)
