On Tuesday, December 1, the Los Angeles Dodgers introduced their new manager, Dave Roberts, to the media. On hand for the occasion were various members of the Dodgers organization, including players, coaches and management.

One of those present was minority owner Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who was there to talk mainly about the Dodgers and their new manager, whom Johnson said was the best man for the job. But then someone asked the NBA and Lakers legend about Kobe Bryant and his retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers. “I looked at the calendar and I said, ‘I’m going to start going to all the Lakers games. I can’t miss because this is going to be the end for me seeing him play!’ ”

Here is the video of Magic Johnson talking about Kobe Bryant.
