Magic Johnson steps down from Lakers president of basketball operations

By Daniel Flores



Earlier today it was reported that Magic Johnson had not had a meaningful conversation with Lakers head coach Luke Walton in “weeks.”

Magic Johnson had an impromptu press conference and stepped down as Lakers president according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

This is very shocking to say the least considering there still is one more game left in the Lakers season. Apparently Magic did not tell anybody of his plans. Jeanie Buss who is controlling owner of the Lakers did not know Magic was stepping down.

Johnson also stated that he wants to go back to his wonderful life away from this position. Saying, “I was happier when I wasn’t the president.” Via Dave McMenamin.
