Magic Johnson will address the Wizards

By Dan Steinberg

Remember when Colin Cowherd slammed John Wall for his pre-game dance, saying, in part, that "Magic never would [do that]. Point guard is like the quarterback. it's an IQ-judgment position. The great ones are not about themselves. They're about the others. Leadership is IQ, it's not skills....Magic would never consider doing that."

Soon after, Ted Leonsis blogged about Magic Johnson, writing that Magic "likes and respects John Wall" and "knows sports are a part of the entertainment business."

Leonsis also noted then that Magic would be attending Wednesday's Wizards game against the Rockets, and he added more to that thread this week by noting that Johnson will actually address the team.

Earvin Magic Johnson will be in town as well. He will meet our players before the game and talk about effort, teamwork and upside.

No word whether Magic will dance in the locker room. Probably not, I'm guessing.

Magic just sold his share of the Lakers two weeks ago, stating it was for business reasons. He has said many times he loves the Lakers adn aleays will but would love to have more stake in an NBA franchise. Hmmmm.

Magic as coach or GM for Les Boulez? YES PLEASE. And also, maybe John Wall can teach him how to do the Dougie.

Why, after the MJ debacle, would anyone want another ex-player with no track record as a GM or coach to be involved with the Wizards in either capacity?
