1. What five words best describe the news that Magic is taking over the Lakers? J.A. Adande, ESPN.com: "Back to back! Yeah! YEAH!"
Those are five words I have associated with Magic ever since I saw this video clip in 1988. It's hard not to think of the 1980s when you see Magic with the Lakers, but since he spent half of Tuesday trying to leave the deep past in the past maybe we can, too. After all, as an executive he just won a WNBA championship with the Sparks and came within two games of the World Series with the Dodgers in 2016.
