Carr wants Kobe to come rescue Lakers after Magic quits

Magic Johnson is conducting an impromptu press conference and just stepped down as Lakers president. Johnson was publicly frustrated during talks with New Orleans, even going as far as to tell reporters that he felt the Pelicans didn't act in good faith. He was general manager when I was there and things didn't work out and he kind of went away. We're halfway there with LeBron coming (last summer). "I'm looking forward to it". If the Lakers are going to be adding a new president, Pelinka's job is far from safe.

Buss didn't attend the Lakers' season finale, although Johnson waited by the executive parking area at Staples Center in hopes of seeing her. Buss tweeted her reaction at halftime. I think that, um, she gave me full power to do what I wanted to do. So I've got to make a decision. "I couldn't stand to tell her", per Bill Oram of The Athletic.

Johnson didn't directly tie his decision to the future of coach Luke Walton, who was widely expected to be fired by Johnson soon.

"I was happier when I wasn't the president", said Johnson, who mentioned he had not informed owner Jeanie Buss of his decision. I'm like, 'Damn I have a great life outside of this. "And I thought about it, and I said 'That's not fun for me". In the formal announcement, Johnson said, "ue to the nature of my schedule and other commitments, I don't feel confident that I can continue to devote the time needed to thrive in my role". Outside of signing LeBron James, the Lakers had difficulty bringing in big name players.

The five-time National Basketball Association champion has come under increasing pressure this year as the Lakers missed out on the post-season, despite signing LeBron James. He said he was exhausted of the "backstabbing and the whispering" but never explained exactly what he meant.
