Weird, but cool!
Basketball legend Magic Johnson teamed up with some cool peeps — like Peter Guber, the producer of Tim Burton's Batman movies, and Rain Man and Flashdance — and straight up bought the dodgers for $2 Billion dollars.
Oh, and yeah, that's not a typo!!
We said BILLION!
Here's what Magic said in a statement:
"I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles."
We can't wait to see if the new ownership will have a big effect on the team, or if everything will go on bein' status quo!
What do U think? Is the ownership change going to be good??
