BR: Magic Johnson's Exit the Best Thing That Could've Happened to the Lakers

This is exactly the point I made on the podcast last night. Despite some of the spin I saw on the sports shows today, Magic exiting now is a positive thing for the Lakers for the future. This allows Jeanie Buss to and the organization to stabilize before free agency hits on July 1.
The Lakers need the right person leading that charge. With Johnson out, Buss has a second chance to get it right, to hire a seasoned exec. Maybe David Griffin, who constructed the Cleveland Cavaliers' title team. Or Arturas Karnisovas, who has helped build a powerhouse in Denver. Or Gersson Rosas, the understudy to Daryl Morey in Houston.
