Basketball Hall-of-Famer Magic Johnson released a series of tweets on Sunday detailing his plans to work with and mentor current Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell, a soon-to-be second year player out of Ohio State.
Johnson, who spent all 13 of his NBA seasons with the organization, has been outspoken when it comes to moves the team should make, but has continued to be a major component when speaking on the team’s business decisions.
