OT: Magic Johnson-led group is buying the LA Dodgers
A group led by Lakers legend Magic Johnson emerged Tuesday night as the new owners of the Dodgers, ending months of uncertainty for the storied but troubled baseball franchise.
Johnson, who guided the Lakers to five NBA championships during the “Showtime” era of the 1980s, is a partner in the group along with longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten and movie executive Peter Guber. The controlling owner would be Mark Walter, chief executive officer of Guggenheim Partners, a Chicago-based financial services company.

Re: OT: Magic Johnson-led group is buying the LA Dodgers
I'm very happy with Magic......he'll be more of the figurehead of the group than having any real power but the rest of the team of owners are very strong and will do a great job. I hope they don't mess with the naming rights or raise the now high ticket prices. I hope they can add more talent and lower the too high parking prices. I'm now looking forward to Opening Day at the stadium.
