Nobody thought the game would even get better. It turns out it can as one of the legends in NBA history has just returned to the action. Magic Johnson has just come back to NBA but this time as an adviser to the Los Angeles Lakers team.
NBA legend Magic Johnson has returned to the scene to be an adviser to Jeanie Buss, owner of LA Lakers. This was initiated after the said team is approaching the longest playoff drought they ever experienced. Johnson said that his role in the team will be of course all basketball and business.
Johnson has expressed his utmost excitement for returning to NBA, most especially to the team that he started his career with. He played point guard for LA Lakers for 13 straight seasons and even nabbed NBA Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award along with a championship back in the early years of his career. He retired as a player in 1996 but was a coach for LA Lakers, too, in 1994.
Johnson has emphasized that he will do everything in his power to help the team return to their rightful place as one of the elite teams in the NBA. He also further stated that his devotion for LA Lakers makes the team his first and only choice. Johnson may have gone through some controversy during his career as an NBA player for LA Lakers but he was surely one of the greatest ones in his time.
Buss said that he is thrilled and honored that they could make use of Johnson’s basketball expertise and skills in the team, making Buss and the fans ecstatic about this news as this can clearly help LA Lakers bring back its former glory. Johnson returning to the court as an adviser signals that there is a possibility that more influential players will be coming back to lend a hand to current NBA teams. Just like Michael Jordan, Johnson has been behind the scenes of NBA since he used to own LA Lakers until he sold it in 2010 and was the honorary vice president of the said team until just last year.
