Magic Johnson is bringing Showtime back to the Staples Center, and as he builds from the ground up, now is the time to get single game tickets to cheer on your Lakers! Some of the pieces are already in place as the face of the franchise, Magic Johnson, sets out to create a new championship era in Los Angeles.
See the Lakers face off twice with Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors and battle Chris Paul and the Clippers twice for Staples Center bragging rights. The schedule brings a new superstar every game, from LeBron James to Anthony Davis, so check out the full season schedule below and get ready for the new Showtime!
There’s plenty of youth on the Lakers right now, and Johnson’s primary job will get them to be a cohesive unit going forward. Guard D’Angelo Russell and forward Julius Randle will be the Lakers’ cornerstones, and Jordan Clarkson has thrived following the trade of Lou Williams to Houston.
The first-round pick the Lakers acquired in that deal, plus their own in the lottery will be the first chance Johnson gets to make a lasting imprint on the team he led to five NBA titles. It may take a season or two, but there is definitely reason for optimism in L.A. as Johnson and Jeannie Buss begin their makeover of the Lakers.
