Elsewhere, another era came to an end as Magic Johnson stepped down as President of the Los Angeles Lakers. The legendary former point guard decided to make the move, citing that he wanted to have “fun again.” And who could blame him. It’s been a tumultuous time for the Lakers in the past year.
And this only further underlines the struggles they are having to overturn a very poor period in their franchise’s history. Does this hint at the Lakers not being able to land any of the big name free agents that will be available in the summer? It certainly seems that way, doesn’t it? Almost like he’s jumping ship before it comes crumbling down.
