Kraft thinks NFL in LA 'in the next 5 years'

The "NFL returns to Los Angeles" got a swift kick in the rumor mill butt Thursday, when Magic Johnson decided to let the world know that he would be very interested in bringing the sport back to the second biggest television market in the country.

Johnson, who recently sold a his share of the Los Angeles Lakers, told the Los Angeles Times that he'd be interested in bringing the sport back.

"Would I be interested? Of course I would be interested," Johnson said. "Have I talked to anybody about it? No. But I would love ... I would do that in two seconds."

And who can blame him? Bringing the NFL back to Los Angeles is a gold mine for anyone with the cash to pony up for it (Johnson qualifies), and plus, they talked about it in "Entourage," so it has to make sense from a business perspective!

Actually, someone equally as biz-savvy as Ari Gold agrees -- Patriots owner Bob Kraft told USA Today that he'd be surprised if the NFL didn't return to LA within the next five years.

"I'd be very surprised if it doesn't happen in the next five years," Kraft said Thursday. "We have to be in L.A. How can we not be in the second-largest city in America, which is a gateway to Asia and Mexico?"

Well, I'm not a geography major, but it sure seems like "Phoenix" and "Texas" are as nice of a gateway to Mexico as Los Angeles, but Kraft's point is a salient one -- the NFL could use a team in Los Angeles, if only because it's good for the business and good for the country.

After all, it's not fun to root against the Jaguars; a team in Los Angeles, though, reeks of a front-runner you can pull against.
