After scheduling an impromptu press conference Tuesday evening, Magic Johnson has stepped down as the Lakers' President of Basketball Ops.
As if the Lakers couldn't be more Hollywood this season, Magic Johnson throws another plot twist at the NBA. According to Magic, he has yet to tell Jeanie Buss, who will possibly be as shocked as himself. Magic said he wants to be able to be bias and congratulate players like Russell Westbrook for accomplishments, so he does not feel comfortable in his role. Many predicted the Lakers would be somewhat of a circus this season, but no one could have predicted this.
