Magic Opens Up


Magic Johnson Tells All in Appearance on ESPN’s First Take

Well, that’s one way to put everything on the table and throw a ton of dirt at an organization.

On Monday morning, Magic Johnson, the former President of Basketball Operations who abruptly resigned at the conclusion of the 2018-19 regular season, joined ESPN’s First Take. In what turned into must-see television, Johnson came out as transparent as possible in front of Stephen A. Smith, Max Kellerman, and Molly Qerim.

If the Los Angeles Lakers organization hasn’t been dealing with enough drama at this point, Johnson came out ready to drop some more bombs.

Nevertheless, the fit never seemed to turn into a perfect match. Johnson very clearly misunderstood how much time and work was necessary to fill his role and the fact that he was uninterested in taking a necessary amount of time away from his external business ventures to concentrate on being a president of basketball operations of an NBA franchise shows that the initial hire was mind-boggling to say the least.

While Johnson’s comments force more criticism and drama into the direction of the Lakers organization, the entire situation has continued to make Magic look brutally bad. The fact of the matter is, he failed in his role and as being the man in charge, he was held accountable for all the front office mishaps that have taken place throughout his tenure with the team.

Johnson very clearly was unable to handle the heat so he got right out of the kitchen.
