Would the Lakers have won the title in 97' if Magic would have come back to play with Shaq after the 96' season?

Hell no. The Rockets that year didn't even get out of the west with Hakeem, Barkley and Drexler. Magic was 36/37 by that time. Now if you want to ask if the Lakers in 1997 had the 1991 version of Magic that is a different story. That would be interesting.

It would have been very interesting. Magic was old but he was still productive with very little training time with the team.

I hated Van Exel for what he did to Magic, I dont know if it was true or not but at the time I heard he dissed the old man.

Still if he comes back he definitely makes the Lakers better, would have been great to see. Magic was still an All-Star
