Magic steps down as Lakers' president

Magic steps down as Lakers' president”

The former Lakers icon made the announcement following Luke Walton's pregame comments and prior to the team taking to the court to go against the Portland Trail Blazers.

"And I think I had more fun when I was able to the be big brother and ambassador to everybody".

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Johnson and Pelinka met with LeBron James and agent Rich Paul on Saturday. "And Rondo, I'm not going to play him Tuesday night either unless we're in foul trouble, ejections, those type of things", Walton said following the win over the Jazz.

"Let me tell you what's going on here: Magic Johnson feels betrayed". I'm looking forward to it. I've got a handsome life, so I'm going to go back to that attractive life. "And I thought about it and I said, 'That's not fun for me".

Johnson retired in 1991 after he tested positive for HIV, but later returned briefly to the Lakers as a player and a coach.

In a dramatic announcement which came shortly before the Lakers' final game of the season, an emotional Johnson said he was stepping down after a two-year reign as president of basketball operations with the 16-time NBA champions. We are deeply grateful to Magic for all that he has done for our franchise - as a player, an ambassador and an executive. "I don't wanna.[team owner Jeanie Buss] and I have such [an] unbelievable relationship".

Linda McMahon is leaving the Small Business Administration
Politico further noted that McMahon is expected to visit the president in Florida this weekend. Trump repeatedly praised McMahon for her work as head of the SBA.

Johnson, who returned to the Lakers in February 2017 to take over the team, has had a hard two years as the team's President of Basketball Operations and had not returned the Lakers to championship caliber for the team within that time, said he's simply in pursuit of happiness. Some of Johnson's other moves have worked out much better, including the Lakers' drafting of Lonzo Ball, the acquisition of Kyle Kuzma and the bargain signing of center JaVale McGee. It was widely believed Johnson was going to fire Walton following the season.

"Her and I have such an wonderful relationship and I think that she gave me full power to do what I wanted to do".

"This is a Magic Johnson that has faced load and loads and loads of adversity and suddenly it was too much to take to the point where you have to make a decision before the season even ended. But she's going to be fine, and I'm going to be fine".
