It has been nearly a month since Magic Johnson was named the new president of basketball operations. In the time following the move, Johnson has been quite vocal about what he plans on doing to help the franchise return to relevance in the NBA. During Friday’s official introduction of Rob Pelinka as the next general manager, the Hall of Famer made a clear and stern proclamation to Lakers fans.

It’s quite clear that Johnson has the right intentions in place to turn around what’s been a disastrous last few years as the team is nearing a franchise-worse four straight season without a playoff appearance. The fact that he has put this type of pressure on himself shows how serious he is about getting the job done. At the same time, it will require much patience on both his and the fan base’s end.

Johnson is taking over a rebuilding project that hasn’t progressed much in the last few seasons. There is a talented young roster in place that can either develop or become attractive trade pieces to bring in star power. Either way, the fate of the franchise is in now in Johnson’s hands.
