Magic Johnson plans to consult with LeBron James on the Lakers' personnel decisions

“Just like when I was playing, Dr. Buss and Jerry West would come to me when we were thinking about making moves,” Johnson said during a conference call Friday. “They’d say, ‘Hey, who do you think can help us that we can get?’ I’d always give out a couple names … then Jerry West would make his decision with Dr. Buss. It’s gonna be the same way here.”
