Since his hiring by the Lakers last week as the team's president of basketball operations, there has been a lot of talk about the ability of the Laker legend, and former minority owner to lead the front office.
Johnson who since his playing career has amassed an impressive business empire and has been a visible NBA broadcaster, will now for the first time be responsible for day-to-day basketball decisions with little no no prior experience or grooming for the job.
Many experts have been skeptical of his ability to handle his new job given the minimal success met by other first time/no experience presidents like Phil Jackson and Vlade Divac in recent years. The question is are these people right will Magic fail in his new job?
We believe we have a good feel for the answer to that question.
