The Los Angeles Lakers have endured a mostly injured thus far this NBA but there may be light at the end of the tunnel with the expected returns of guards Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant near the NBA's All-Star break.  Recently former Lakers minority owner and NBA Legend Magic Johnson shared his thoughts on the current state of the franchise.  

“This is what happens when you make the wrong decisions, two coaching wrong decisions, giving Steve Nash that deal, it’s backfired.....The biggest problem they’re going to have right now … you’ve got to get a guy like Jerry West to be the face of the team. ...

“You’ve got to have someone helping Jim. He’s got to quit trying to prove a point to everybody that he can do it on his own, get his ego out of it, and just say, ‘Let me get someone beside me to help achieve the goals I want......Dr. Buss was smart,” Johnson said. “He said, ‘I’m going to get the best dude, Jerry West, and he helped me achieve my goals. Then I went and got the best coach [in Phil Jackson]. He wanted to work with the best.”
