Commanders begin great weekend for Magic Johnson

The news of Dan Snyder and the group led by Josh Harris coming to an exclusive agreement was met with jubilation on Friday afternoon. While there are still a few hurdles to overcome, it seems for all the smart money that this transaction is done and dusted unless something drastic occurs.

One of the stakeholders who couldn't hide his delight was Magic Johnson. And as it turned out, the Commanders' sale news kicked off a pretty decent weekend for the Pro Basketball Hall of Famer.

"God really blessed me with such an amazing sports weekend! The Lakers won, my Dodgers swept the Padres, and I became an owner."

Harris wasn't as lucky given the Philadelphia 76ers collapsed against the Boston Celtics. Let's hope the incoming duo's postseason prowess transitions to the Commanders quickly.
