According to the Daily News today, Magic Johnson was quoted as saying:
“He came here to put his own stamp on this situation. I think that’s why you’re seeing so many changes, because (Isiah) wants to get his team in here – the guys he feels can be successful,” Johnson said yesterday. “But I can say this, it takes a while to build chemistry. So when you make a lot of changes, one thing that will suffer will be chemistry.”
In the same article, Magic’s chooses the newly built Miami Heat to win the NBA championship. You’d think someone that won a title in his rookie year would have a different opinion on where chemistry ranks among things that make a winning team.
