When you think of Magic Johnson, point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers may come to mind and for good reason. This influential athlete is considered to be one of the 50 greatest NBA players of all time, having won 5 championships. Now the basketball legend is stepping in to help keep women’s basketball apart of the L.A. scene.
The “magic” continues here in Los Angeles now that Johnson has purchased the WNBA Sparks that will ensure the marquee franchise staying put instead of having to relocate. Magic will serve as the face of the team to help one of the WNBA’s most recognizable franchises continue to grow into a long-term brand. We are very excited about this purchase and are happy to see women athletics receiving more of a voice as well as support.
