Lakers' Lonzo Ball discusses playing with LeBron James

Magic Johnson's complete interview about stepping down from Lakers

"I cried before I came here", said Johnson. I'm going to go back to that attractive life.

Johnson pointed out that he was forced to sacrifice a lot in the title and was exhausted of being punished by the NBA for speaking to other teams' players or commenting on basketball matters on social media. Johnson and the Lakers have received several tampering fines from the National Basketball Association for commenting on various players around the league.

Kevin O'Leary is putting on his conspiracy theory hat in trying to decipher why Magic Johnson quit the Los Angeles Lakers this week in stunning fashion. I've got a great life. I thought about Dwyane Wade retiring tomorrow and I can't even tweet it out or be there. I'm looking forward to it.

The Lakers also dealt with injuries to key role players - including Lonzo Ball, Rajon Rondo, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart - and they shut down James for the rest of 2018-19 in late March. "I have more fun on the other side than on this side". And so today, I'm going to step down as the president. "I'm not disappointed in anything we did", he said.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith spoke against the story yesterday, "Let me tell you what's going on here".

"I'm a free bird, and I can't be handcuffed", he said.

Johnson, who held an impromptu news conference outside the Lakers' locker room Tuesday to announce his resignation as president before the team's final game of the season against the Portland Trail Blazers, had been displeased with Walton's ability to effectively make in-game adjustments and he felt the coaching staff lacked the experience and expertise to foster player development, sources said. It was a slight improvement from last season when the team finished the year on a 35-47 record.

The Lakers have won 16 National Basketball Association championships, second only to the archrival Boston Celtics, but have not made the playoffs since 2013.
