Magic Johnson sold his 4.5 per cent stake in the Lakers and his 105 Starbucks locations this week, fueling speculation that he’s trying to obtain majority ownership of an NBA team. But perhaps Magic has his sights set beyond just the NBA.Without an NBA franchise currently up for sale, the LA Times asked him about his interest in the Dodgers, who have a messy ownership situation.
