There's not much evidence it will work in Los Angeles, either, where Magic Johnson is now in charge of leading the Lakers back to the promised land.Johnson will give it a try, and for that Lakers fans have to be happy.Unfortunately, the Lakers have been stuck in the past way too long.Remember, too, that Jeanie Buss didn't speak up last year when the Lakers basically gave away a season – and a season's worth of growth for their young players – by allowing Bryant to enjoy a yearlong going away tour that did nothing to prepare the team for the future.Hiring Pelinka is probably bolder than hiring Johnson.Let Johnson be the public face.For the Lakers to contend again, they need more than just Magic at the top.
