Magic Johnson abruptly resigns as Lakers' president

Magic Johnson quit on the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, which could mean a lot of things for the iconic National Basketball Association franchise, though the biggest immediate one might be the future of head coach Luke Walton.

Despite not telling Buss ahead of time, Johnson said he had no hard feelings for the team's owner and would have struggled to share the news with her. "That's not who I am.' And then I don't want to put [Buss] in the middle of us, you know, even though she said, 'Hey, do what you want to do.' I know she has great love for him and great love for me".

Lakers owner Jeanie Buss told ESPN she meant to let Johnson and Pelinka decide whether or not to retain Walton after the season's end.

"Do I think Rob is the right GM? I like to be free". But, Walton's job status is now uncertain following Johnson's announcement, the report says.

Rickie Fowler may be playing in the Masters next week, but that's not stopping his competitive edge at the Valero Texas Open. The 38-year-old fired an opening round three-under 69 to sit in a tie for 17th, three shots behind the leader Si Woo Kim.

"I hope someday I can quit a job that pays me millions 'because it wasn't fun anymore, '" one fan tweeted, while another joked, "magic johnson was the lakers president when this inning started". Whether it's with the Los Angeles Lakers or another team, like the Phoenix Suns, the Ball patriarch is hellbent on creating an National Basketball Association "dynasty" around his three boys.

Regardless of how incompetent he was or wasn't, Johnson leaving the team in the manner he did is a bad look for the franchise and isn't going to help James recruit top free agents to join him in L.A, this summer.

The Lakers face a make or break offseason, as they search for a second star to pair with James in their quest to vault back into the Western Conference's upper echelon.

Johnson's sudden decision ends another chapter in the remarkable life of the star point guard from Lansing, Michigan, who won an NCAA championship at Michigan State before claiming five National Basketball Association titles and three league MVP awards during his 12-year playing career as the leader of the Showtime Lakers. "I knew if I stayed in the role, I'd be giving up a lot of me".
