The Lakers needed a front office change, and they got it — two days before the trade deadline. Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak are out, Magic Johnson is in.
It’s a good first step, but here is the question I ask in this latest PBT Extra: What kind of leader will Magic Johnson be?
Will he be like he ran his business empire, hiring smart people and getting everyone to collaborate into a greater whole?
Or, will he run the Lakers like his Twitter account?
Magic has said all the right things about it being the former, but soon will come time for action.
