Magic Johnson reveals Commanders delight

While Josh Harris, Mitchell Rales, and others provide more to the financial aspect of buying the Washington Commanders, the role Magic Johnson plays will be equally important. This is the true sports connection, the relatable figure, and the sporting icon that is revered around the globe - exactly what this ownership group needed to legitimize the project.

Johnson is an NBA Hall of Famer and one of the greatest players in history. But his business acumen and experience running successful sports teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers adds another fascinating layer to this equation as the Commanders begin a new path.

After the joint statement was made public, Johnson immediately took to Twitter, declaring his delight around the sale. The respected figure also revealed that the vision has already been devised and will be implemented quickly.

"I could not be more excited to be a partner in the proposed new ownership group for the Washington Commanders. Josh Harris has assembled an amazing group who share a commitment to not only doing great things on the field but to making a real impact in the DMV community. I’m so excited to get to work on executing our vision for the Commanders and our loyal fanbase!"
