NBA Rumors: Magic Johnson begs Lakers to bring back Phil Jackson

It appears Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson is heaving one last ditch effort to save his once proud franchise.

According to multiple sources, the New York Knicks and Phil Jackson have come to some type of agreement that will give Jackson control of the Knicks front office.

That said, it doesn’t appear (at least right now) that any paperwork has been signed so technically Jackson is still available – at least in the mind of Johnson who begged the Lakers to bring back their former coach.

I love Jim & Jeanie Buss, but we need Phil Jackson to be the face of our great organization, the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant is the face of the Lakers’ team. Who is the face of the Lakers’ organization?

Magic of course hasn’t been a fan of anything Jim Buss has done in recent years and ripped head coach Mike D’Antoni earlier this season before going on a self-imposed quiet time in regards to talking about the Lakers.

In one sense, it’s understandable that Johnson doesn’t want to see the Lakers struggle – but it’s a little hilarious to see him begging on social media.
