Two former Los Angeles stars as players are now turning their efforts from the playing field to the front office. David Beckham & Earvin “Magic” Johnson earlier this week both purchased teams in their respective sports as Beckham agreed to bring an MLS team to Miami, while Johnson along with Los Angeles Dodgers Chairman Mark Walter have partnered to buy the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA.

While Beckham looks to bring a new soccer culture to Miami, Johnson and Walter look to revitalize women’s basketball in Los Angeles.

Each group will face an uphill battle as both will not only try to win on their respective playing fields, but with the fans of two of the least popular sports.
