Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson says the Los Angeles Dodgers would support a gay player.

Johnson, who is part of the group that purchased the Dodgers in 2012, discussed with TMZ.com how the team would react to a Dodger coming out.

“As an owner, you really got to support the person. You really do,” Johnson said. “And then, help educate the public. And that's really important. We stand with this player, we're going to support this player. Once the organization and the owner does that, then everybody else has to say, 'Okay we're going to support it,' or you just say, 'Hey, we're going to deal with it.'”

“I think the Dodgers, we got a great organization here. And so, if that happens to our organization … just like things are normal. It's not going to change anything.”

“If a player ever wants to talk me, whether he's on the Dodgers or not, about coming out or about, you know, life, my doors are always open,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
