Magic Over in LA as Johnson Abruptly Resigns as Lakers President

When Magic Johnson was hired as the President of Basketball Operations for the Los Angeles Lakers the expectations around the team instantly skyrocketed.

The writing appears to be on the wall for Luke Walton and the Los Angeles Lakers. "I think when your peers respect your game and respect the fact that they've seen you work, I think that's more important". When asked about what her husband plans to do next, Cookie stayed mum.

So, if it is indeed true that Bryant yields such influence within the Buss family, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine him working his way into an official position. When they played on New Year's Eve, Charlotte raced out to a 13-point lead after just one quarter and never looked back.

Johnson said he was preparing to fire Walton on Wednesday until he decided he couldn't do it to Walton, another one of Buss' favorite people. "This is what he wants to do, and I'm behind him 100 percent". They wanted the Playoff experience he provides and the savvy-veteran mentality he brings game in and game out.

Walker, a three-time All-Star, is a free agent and faces an uncertain future after eight seasons with the franchise.

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo picked his strongest side despite their Wembley trip and insisted he did not consider resting players. He gave us a goal threat, energy and legs - very pleased with him. "The preparation for the next game starts tomorrow".


And Johnson didn't like the politics of it all as President of Basketball Operations with the Los Angeles Lakers and didn't want to make the hard decision to fire Lakers coach Luke Walton and get in the middle of a mess knowing that the decision would hurt Buss.

When it comes to James, the Lakers' star had no idea that Johnson was planning on stepping down, reported ESPN.

Has Green been the NBA's most valuable role player this season?

"It's all love in LA", McGee said. They see you out there working your butt off, and even though you're losing, they still support you. Obviously, Ibaka was looking to get the answer to a question every fan and the Raptors organization and you can't fault him either considering how much debate there has been on the topic. There will be a lot of eyes on this team during the summer, and there will be a lot of pressure on General Manager Mitch Kupchak.

The Hornets had won two of the three previous games against the Magic this season, but the Magic routed the Hornets 127-89 in Orlando in their most-recent game February 14. Ibaka made the National Basketball Association finals with Oklahoma City. Over the final 10 games of the regular season, the 28-year-old reserve averaged 18.9 points while shooting 46.9% from the field and connecting on almost 45% of his 8.9 3-point attempts per game. Look past the "load management" that limited his output to 60 games and he put up one of the most dominant seasons in the National Basketball Association and one of the most complete offensive assaults in Raptors history, as he averaged 26.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in just 34 minutes a game with a True Shooting percentage of 60.6 per cent. Jeremy Lamb has been hitting clutch threes, while Frank Kaminsky has been on his A-game for the past month and a half while getting big minutes.
