Magic Johnson: Not ‘Lost Season’ For Dodgers

Magic JohnsonWhen Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson said in February that anything short of a World Series appearance would be “not a good season for us,” it was widely viewed as a statement from ownership that there could be major changes if the team fell short of its goal.

But Johnson said Tuesday he doesn’t view the Dodgers’ loss in the National League Championship Series as a “lost season.”

“We’re excited about what we’re building, and we’re ahead of schedule,” Johnson said Tuesday in an appearance on 710 ESPNLA. “I never thought we would get there that fast, to play in the [NLCS]. I was excited.
