The Dodgers having Magic Johnson as an owner has as much basketball perks as you would expect.
In a get up straight from a 1950′s softball game. Kevin Love throws out the first pitch at a Minnesota Twins game to Joe Mauer who owns the best side burns in the league. How swell!
The Suns new hope at the point Goran Dragic opens the Diamondbacks game with the first pitch of the night. It wasn’t a strike, but that’s okay. We won’t judge.
Dan Majerle steals the show at a Diamondback’s game by catching a baseball while eating a hot dog by the Chase Field pool. Why? Cause he’s awesome. That’s why.
Soon to be former owner Frank McCourt announced an agreement on Monday to sell the bankrupt Los Angeles Dodgers for $2 billion to an ownership group that includes Lakers legend Magic Johnson. However, the sale is still subject to approval in federal bankruptcy court. In a statement made after the agreement, Johnson was excited about his new ball club.
“I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles”
The acquiring group, called Guggenheim Baseball Management, includes Mandalay Entertainment chief executive Peter Guber plus former Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals president Stan Kasten.

Last night LeBron James crashed into Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria seated front row. Nearly levelling the billionaire into the ground before barely saving his chair up right. I’m impressed with this strength and quickness in this situation too.
