The Magic Show in Los Angeles has come to a conclusion, at least in terms of running the Lakers.
Listen to Colin Cowherd discuss Magic Johnson's shocking exit from the Los Angeles Lakers as the Hall of Fame legend not only made national headlines by unexpectedly bowing out from his position as team president, but the freakish fashion in which he announced it to the media. I had more fun when I was able to be the big brother. He expressed his affection for Buss, saying, "I knew I couldn't be face-to-face and tell her".

Its elite Saiqa (Lightning) force, numbers some 3,500, while Haftar's sons also have well-equipped troops, LNA sources say. The United Nations said 2,800 people were displaced by clashes and many more could flee, though some were trapped.
He told reporters he was stepping down in order to preserve his friendship with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, describing her as "like a sister".
Johnson's decision to step down from his role comes as the Lakers are finishing up what has been among the most-disappointing seasons in recent franchise history.

"I want to go back to who I was before taking on this job".
"Somebody's gonna have to tell my boss", Johnson said. "This is a good day". Fitting, since nobody associated with the Lakers (except perhaps Alex Caruso) has been having much fun since the team was officially eliminated from playoff contention in late March following embarrassing losses to the Suns and Anthony Davis-less Pelicans. I was thinking about all those times, all the guys who want me to mentor them or be a part of their lives, and I can't even do that.

In the end, it was all the theater of the Lakers' disappointing season bundled into a moment only a Laker - THE Laker - could produce. "He will always be not only a Lakers icon, but our family".
James did not look to disappointed by Johnson's decision. But it's been six straight years since their last win, and three years since they made the playoffs.
Johnson remained publicly supportive of Walton, but Magic also was widely thought to agree with Walton's detractors who aren't impressed by the former Lakers forward's offensive game planning and rotations.
Heartbreak: Auburn loses by one point with .6 seconds left in game
We do believe that the foul call was correct, but it should've been a double-dribble, which likely would've given Auburn the win. The season did not end as Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett intended. "Let's not remember this game because of just how it ended".
