Magic Johnson: NBA legend returns to LA Lakers

January 16th, 2017

Basketball great Magic Johnson has returned to the Los Angeles Lakers as an adviser to owner Jeanie Buss. The Lakers are struggling again this season after three years of decline in which they have posted the worst results in their history. Three-time Most Valuable Player Johnson spent his entire 13-year NBA career with the Lakers, winning five championships with the franchise.”I’m overjoyed to be back home with the Lakers,” Johnson said.

“I will do everything in my power to help return them to their rightful place among the elite teams of the NBA,” added the 57-year-old. Johnson was an honorary vice president of the Lakers until last year and held an ownership stake until selling it in 2010. He was also part of the USA ‘Dream Team’ which won Olympic gold in 1992.

Conor McGregor Make History At UFC 205 In NYC

November 15th, 2016

Conor McGregor did not ‘come to take part’, he came to ‘take over’ and now he is the first two-division champion in UFC history.

The Notorious electrified the Madison Square Garden crowd with a dominant and measured performance, dropping the former lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez three times in the opening round alone.

The American never established a foothold in the bout, and the referee was forced to call the fight by T.K.O. when McGregor sent his opponent to the canvas once more… And with that stoppage after 3:04 of round two Conor McGregor silenced his critics and further cemented his place in the history books of MMA.

He leaves New York city with both the featherweight, and the lightweight belts, and big decisions to make about his next move.
