During a news conference on Tuesday, Magic Johnson set a timeline for the Lakers to move the needle. He said that if the team doesn't land major free agents by next summer, he will step down as President of Basketball Operations.
Ben Maller thinks you can't really put much stock into Magic's words. He continues on to recall Magic claiming that the Lakers are "back" after winning the Las Vegas Summer League. Actions speak louder than words and so far, Magic's actions have given no reason to be hopeful as a Lakers fan.
