Since taking over as president of the Lakers, Magic Johnson never fully committed to the job. Often he was traveling and away from the team. His office hours were limited. He didn't do a lot of scouting. Running an NBA team takes a tremendous commitment of time and energy.

Hold on so Magic is quitting? Wtf. Man this front office is in such disarray. How can they expect free agents to want to play here when we can’t even lock down a damn GM. Jeez.

Wow lots to unpack here. Honestly first thing I think about his how critical he would have been to our recruiting efforts for max FAs this summer. Second, who is president now?

Jeanie just said she was going to defer to Magic in regards to the coaching decision. Who the [expletive] is hiring the coach now?

This isn't a good look for us as we look to bring on Max FAs this summer. Our front office looks disorganized. First all the media hit pieces, and now this...

More of the Lebron cancer spreading. Please open my thread back up. Disaster disaster disaster......

Although I think we all knew what needed to happen. I bet J. Buss told Magic that she was not firing Walton

For a split second, this brought me back to Magic announcing his retirement as a player.

Woj couldn't even wait 5 minutes...

 

Lakers coaching staff fully expected to be fired in hours after the final game of the season. They had believed they were gone for months. Now? Magic quits in public, saying he's too scared to tell Jeanie Buss face-to-face. What an embarrassing episode for a historic franchise.

Man this franchise has reached a new low.

There’s still hope if they are smart and hire David Griffin.
