Magic Johnson reveals his idea to save the Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers need more Hall of Famers, because of course they do.

Magic Johnson is an NBA legend, a basketball Hall of Famer, one of the most important members of the Los Angeles Lakers family, and an eternal optimist.

When you combine the latter of those two labels, you get Magic’s foolproof plan to fix the Lakers — which is equal parts insanely hopeful and mind-blowingly simple.

In the eyes of the greatest point guard ever, all you need to do is sign the very best players, such as Kevin Durant and LeBron James, to go with new coach Luke Walton. Naturally.

We don’t blame Magic for wanting all of the NBA’s superstars to come to Los Angeles. He’s just being a fan. Of course, he’s also being kind of greedy, as he wants Toronto Raptors wing DeMar DeRozan in the purple and gold as well:

That’d be a heck of a lot of talent in Los Angeles, but what about the current young guys? Is Julius Randle going to play center alongside LeBron/KD/DeRozan? Who starts at point guard, D’Angelo Russell or Jordan Clarkson? There are a lot of moving parts here, Magic. We’re not sure you thought this one through.
