Of course, he caught lightning in a bottle with the previous managements fortunate trade with the New Orleans Jazz three years earlier (Gail Goodrich for the Jazz' 1st rd pick in '79 among other things). That 1st rd pick ended up being the #1 pick in the draft, the Lakers took Magic and the rest is history. Btw, according to reports at the time, Magic wasn't a slam dunk pick for LA. With Norm Nixon already at PG, the Lakers were seriously debating between Magic and Sidney Moncrief. Jack Kent Cook, the outgoing owner, reportedly made the final call for Magic. Imagine if 1) the trade was never made (Magic playing in New Orleans or Utah) or 2) Moncrief a Laker and Magic a member of the Chicago Bulls (2nd pick in '79)? If Magic is playing for the Bulls, the Bulls are not likely drafting #3 in 1984 (Jordan).Buss buying the Lakers in '79 for what he did was a huge gamble. The NBA was in serious trouble financially. He reaped the rewards, however.
