Magic Johnson the former Los Angeles Lakers basketball standout has become a huge sensation in California. He is now the owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, and has quite a bit of impact on things happening in L.A.. Well today the former MSU standout guard stated he feels Los Angeles could have a team soon, 2 years soon. He also gives his input on the Raiders moving back to Los Angeles.
“I think for the first time, I truly believe we’re going to get a team,” Johnson said Tuesday at the joint Raiders-Cowboys practice, via Yahoo! Sports. “Finally. Everybody is on board. The city is on board. The business community is on board. The NFL is on board. Finally we have momentum. In the next couple years, at least in the next 24 months, I think one team will be coming. I don’t know what team that will be, but I believe in the next two years we’ll have a team.”
The most obvious candidates for relocation are the Raiders and Rams, especially since both teams currently have year-to-year stadium leases.
“It would be great to have the Raiders back in L.A., I would love for that to happen,” Johnson said. “But that’s going to be up to Mark [Davis] and the Raiders and the NFL. But I would love to have the Raiders back in L.A., where they belong. We just want a team, we want a team in the worst way.”
