The Los Angeles Lakers have fallen on hard times as they are well on their way to a fourth consecutive year without a playoff appearance. The 1980's saw the Lakers win five NBA Championships with point guard Earvin "Magic" Johnson being a big part of hit. After retiring in 1991, Johnson has gone on to be a successful businessman which has included part ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers. But now Johnson has been asked to come back and help his beloved Lakers as he is the team's new president of basketball operations. Will Johnson be patient with head coach Luke Walton? Is D'Angelo Russell the right point guard for the Lakers? What is the missing ingredient for the Lakers? I will be discussing this and more this Friday night at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific on The 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show. Please feel free to call-in at 626-231-0309 and share your thoughts.
