Magic Johnson has an undeniable love for the city of Los Angeles.
While there is no guarantee that this love will transpire into a successful ownership tenure of the Dodgers, at least the fans will always know where his heart is.
Frank McCourt came from Boston, and it's hard for one to understand the culture of Los Angeles when they have spent most of their life living outside the city. He never did grasp what was important to L.A., nor did he ever relate to the fans.
Magic has done wonders for the inner city of Los Angeles. He relates to everyone from the single mom on welfare, to the multi-million dollar executives in charge of the most prominent businesses in California.
If you think he fits the profile of a politician, well he dabbled in that as well.
Things won't be easy, and Magic knows that. However, his love for the city of Los Angeles will afford him to have some missteps along the way without fans questioning his underlying motives.
