Reports out of Los Angeles from Jim Hill of CBS2/KCAL9 is that former Lakers guard and Hall Of Famer Magic Johnson will win the bid to own/have a serious stake in the boys in blue on the diamond.
Magic told Hill...
“He’s thrilled, honored but mostly happy for the fans of the Los Angeles.”
The deal did not come on the cheap as Magic led a group of partners including Peter Guber, Stan Kasten, Bobby Patton and Todd Boehly. The group landed the Dodgers, a storied franchise in Major League Baseball, for $2.15 billon which equals more than a 30 point beatdown of an opponent on the hardwood in a playoff series. It's $.14 million more than Steve Ross's purchase of the Miami Dolphins for $1.1 billion in 2009.
Can't wait to see Magic throw out the first pitch in a Dodger Blue number 32 jersey.
