Magic Johnson called his shot Thursday night, and he wasn’t shy about it. The Dodgers’ co-owner did not hesitate when he predicted how the team would finish this year.
“The Dodgers are going to win the World Series this year,” Johnson said. “This is our year.”
Johnson spoke at Clayton Kershaw’s annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose event at Dodger Stadium, at which the Dodgers ace — currently on the disabled list because of a back injury — presented Johnson with the Kershaw’s Challenge Impact Award, in honor of the charitable work Johnson and his foundation have done.
