Remember the hallway series? Neither does anyone else, because it never happened. Perhaps Magic could change all that.
Clippers versus Lakers in 7 games for the hearts, minds and souls of Los Angeles.
Slight possibility of an uproar over Magic shepherding in a new/Donald Sterling free Era with the Clippers right down the hall from the team which spawned his legacy.
Magic would be responsible for the unthinkable – transforming the longtime floundering franchises to a place of legitimacy and respectability.
Perhaps most crucial to this choice, he wouldn't have to move.
Lastly, his statue is right outside the building. Should he turn the franchise around, they might erect another.
Pluses – Sterling as minority owner. Clippers relevance for the first time ever?
Minuses – Dilution of Magic's brand. Venom from Laker faithful.
Verdict - Dueling Magic statues, how cool would that be?
