Laker Organization

January 4, 1992
I have been a Laker fan for many years and a great admirer of Magic Johnson. But now that Magic has retired and the Lakers are struggling, many have started to doubt the ability of the team to win without him. I don't think the Lakers are struggling because of the absence of Magic, but because of the distraction caused by Magic. I don't see any point for him to sit on the bench with the Lakers. I understand he is trying to provide moral support, but I think Magic's presence is a big distraction for the Laker organization.

It was inspiring to see the report on ESPN's "SportsCenter" concerning all the marvelous celebrities who are such big Laker fans. Dyan Cannon's knowledge of the game was especially impressive. She described the Lakers' play as being "so poetic" and "as if it was choreographed." It is, isn't it? She loves watching the greats of the game. So what if she wasn't quite sure what the names of those greats were? The Laker organization should be proud to have these celebrity fans who show their undying devotion and cheer on their heroes all June long.
