Magic Johnson Delivers Shocking Resignation

Magic Johnson resigned as president of the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Johnson held an impromptu press conference to announce the decision and revealed he had not yet told Lakers owner Jeannie Buss.

According to reports, Johnson had met with Buss and LeBron James in recent days and did not signal he planned to resign.

The Lakers coaching staff also reportedly believed for months that they would be fired by Johnson after the final game of the season, and they ended up outlasting Johnson.
