Magic discusses purchase on 'Real Sports'
LOS ANGELES -- Part-owner Magic Johnson will discuss his $50 million investment in the Dodgers on the next edition of HBO's "Real Sports," which will premier on Tuesday at 7 p.m. PT.

Johnson tells the story of the moment that gave him pause about moving forward with the purchase of the Dodgers. It wasn't the actual writing of the check, he said.

"It was telling my wife," Johnson said.

Also interviewed are Dodgers chairman Mark Walter, part-owner Peter Guber and former Lakers head coach Pat Riley.
