Sparks Have the Magic Touch

Los_Angeles_Sparks_CourtThe Los Angeles Sparks is one of the four original WNBA franchises left.  As well as being one of the WNBA’s best teams, They’ve won titles in 2001 and 2002 and also made it to the playoffs five times in the past six seasons. But, despite their record, in December Paula Madison former owner of the Los Angeles Sparks informed the league that she would no longer be able to run the team. She stated since taking over the franchise in 2007, she and her family have lost $12 million and an additional $1.4 million this past season.  Laurel Richie, WNBA president had no idea or warning, the news  just came out of the blue “You should look for new owners” said Paula Madison.  It looked like the team would be leaving Los Angeles until the big announcement came at the eleventh hour.


Magic and Mark Walter are a part of the group of investors that brought the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012 and have decided to sprinkle that magic dust on the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks.  The Sparks will continue to call home the Staples Center along with the Clippers and Lakers.  The new owner ship is very optimistic and hope that the fans will be as well.  The team management Ross and Toler will be reinstated and no changes will be made until after the season beginning in May 2014.

We all know that Magic is very knowledgeable about the game of basketball and has proven himself to be a successful business man so let the sparks fly high and the stars shine bright Magic is back into Los Angeles basketball!
