Last night, Magic Johnson announced, with no prior forewarning, that he was stepping down from his position as Lakers’ president. Just a year ago, the Lakers looked like the NBA’s most-promising team. A lot of people compared them to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Like the Lakers, the Sixers endured several seasons of losing, but built a core that proved lethal, by 2017. While that didn’t result in a playoff spit, the Sixers’ potential was realized in 2018. Many felt the Lakers’ 2019 run would be that way, especially when LeBron James signed.
Instead, the Lakers never found their groove, and then injuries mounted, ruining the season. Before the injuries, the Lakers had the fourth-best record in the West, but ended up missing the playoffs, and now Magic Johnson has stepped down. Twitter is now clowning the whole situation, with #MagicJohnsonQuits.
