Magic Johnson steps down, stuns Lakers with resignation


Recommended Posts

This might be the most bizarre story going. So Magic has a three hour meeting with ownership the day before, and not one time did he bring up he was planning to abruptly quit. He doesn't have the courage to tell Buss in person he is quitting, so he does it via an odd impromptu presser. He wants to tweet more. Hates he can't go and help Ben Simmons improve upon his game. Is this real life?

Might as well make Lebron the official President of the Lakers. With Magic gone, Lebron probably will have now complete say in exactly how the roster will look. So might as well give him the President title.

 

He already was. Magic being gone is irrelevant to that.

Earvin was a horrible hire for many reasons, including: getting rid of D LO, Randle, and drafting Ball. Plus screwing up the AD talks. A good lotto pick plus prime free agents plus development of young Lakers will have Lebron in the mix next year.

Stephen A. says the issue was an internal front office battle with GM Rob Pelinka. Magic wanted to fire both Luke and Pelinka. Pelinka is supported by Kobe and Jeannie Buss didn't want to get rid of Pelinka. Magic saw it wasn't going to work and opted out.

 

Some folks starting to suggest that Kobe pulls more strings behind the scenes than we thought.
