When Magic Johnson met the media Tuesday, he shared more about the team's free agency plans than anyone could've expected. The Lakers president clearly had more on his mind than the introduction of the newest members of his team and wanted it to be known that when it comes to free agents he means business.
Magic's outspoken nature and charismatic personality are a big reason that he remains one of the most popular figures in NBA history. The Lakers have put all their chips in Magic's corner and he will receive the majority of the praise or backlash depending on how Los Angeles fares in the free agent market over the next two years.
Between Magic's words and owner Jeanie Buss' tweets, everyone is talking about the Lakers. But while the Lakers have already won the attention of the NBA world, it remains to be seen if they can successfully lure the greatest player in the game today- LeBron James.
