The Los Angeles Clippers have been through quite an ordeal in the last few days thanks to the remarks of jerkhole slumlord Donald Sterling. Adam Silver banned the owner from the league for life yesterday, and the players and coaches of the league seem to all be totally on board. As am I. Now, on to the tricky part... who should own the Clippers next? Here are five reasons why Magic Johnson would be the perfect person to help this city heal.
Los Angeles was hurting for a bit there, and they may hurt more in the future if Sterling decides to fight this. I hope he will do the right thing, but the chances of that are slim to none. Bringing Johnson on board would help to heal the city.
It doesn't feel right that Magic is only the owner of a baseball team, and we need to get him back into the basketball world. The Dodgers are great and all, but Magic belongs on the hardwood He used to be a part owner of the Lakers, but we all know how that worked out.
I heard that Floyd Mayweather is also interested in purchasing the team, but that simply cannot happen. I love Floyd and all, but Magic has clearly shown a better track record when it comes to business decisions and I would rather see the man who ran Showtime at the head of the Clippers.
Magic was mentioned on the tapes where Sterling revealed himself for the racist owner that he is. Seeing Sterling have to hand the keys over to Magic would be the ultimate reward.
This is going to be a year-long process in my opinion, so it would be best to buckle-up. Hopefully Silver and company can get this done in a shorter span than that, but this is what needs to happen.
