After only one year as head of basketball operations, Magic Johnson has decided to step down from his position as head of basketball operations for the Lakers. The decision came very suddenly and apparently LeBron James nor Magic’s boss, Jeanie Buss knew anything about it. Magic decided to hold an impromptu press conference yesterday where he admitted that he hadn’t discussed anything with Jeanie or other members of the Lakers organization.

This situation makes me wonder if LeBron James feels any kind of regret for joining the Lakers in the first place. Magic is one of the main reasons that LeBron came to the Lakers.  Only time will tell what’s next for the Lakers. Im sure we’ll hear something from LeBron soon.
