Magic Johnson, like every Lakers fan, hates to see the team struggle in mediocrity, that's why the showtime point guard is willing to put his legendary status in the game to help out the Lakers in free agency.

Magic has spoke before of how when he has approached by the Lakers and that he'd helped them previously search for stars in the open market: "First they have to make up their mind on who they want, and then they tell me, just like I recruited Ron Artest, I talked to Lamar Odom.”

Johnson also reiterated the fact that he thinks Kobe Bryant should sit out the remainder of the season whilst he rehabilitates from his injured left knee: "I'm always in the belief when you come back and then you get hurt again, to make sure you heal your body all the way, I want him to stay out, but I know that's not who he is.

"But I definitely want him to stay out to get his body healthy and strong to get ready to go for a championship next season."

Although they wont admit it publicly, the LA Lakers are tanking this year. With such a rich pool of talent in the upcoming draft, it's in their own best interest that they slide down the conference standings and start crossing fingers by the time the draft lottery comes around.

With the possibility of potential franchise players in Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, now is the time to alter the fortunes of the historic franchise with a pleasing draft and an aggressive free agency assault led by one of the greatest players of all time: Earvin 'Magic' Johnson.
