Magic Johnson: Detroit Savior?

Sad to see Magic Johnson sell his share in the Lakers yesterday, but at least it was to a diehard (and very wealthy) season-ticket holder (Patrick Shoon-Shiong) that is approved by Doctor Jerry Buss.

Obviously not much will change within the dynamic, proactive and eminently successful organization, but Los Angeles fans will truly miss a part of of our recent history, as Magic might or might not be purchasing the Pistons.

For those that remember his better days with Isiahhttps://i2.wp.com/blackgaygossip.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/magic-johnson-isiah-thomas-kiss1.jpg, which was followed by his well-publicized feud based on Magic’s accusations of Isiah abandoning their friendship post-playing days, this may be an indication of Magic’s desire to:
1) Return Home to where he played high school & college ballhttps://i1.wp.com/cdn1.ioffer.com/img/1160550000/_i/14638997/1.jpg
2) Burn Isiah by taking over “his” team
-and- perhaps most importantly
3) Doing to Detroit what he was able to do to Los Angeles, which meant opening movie theatres, Fatburgers, 24-Hour Fitness gyms, and countless other infrastructure improvements that led to actual change and improvement in a woebegone inner-city.

Whatever happens, the City of Los Angeles supports Magic and his future endeavors. We will miss you, and you will always be a Laker.
