Magic Johnson wanted to fire Lakers GM Rob Pelinka

The Lakers will close the regular season tonight and if Magic's decision is any indication, nothing but hard work will get them back to the place they used to know. "I was thinking about all those times, all those guys who want me to mentor them or be a part of their lives, and I can't even do that". The system is crumbling down. "I'm looking forward to going back to being an ambassador".

Johnson also says he's exhausted of being fined by the National Basketball Association for tampering. And at the trade deadline, Los Angeles was willing to trade basically all of its young assets to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis.

"In the process of vetting agent candidates during meetings, LaVar is inquiring if the agencies have the power to pair his three sons - Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo - on the same National Basketball Association team".

ESPN reported earlier on Tuesday that Johnson had not spoken to head coach Luke Walton in weeks. "And I thought about it, and I said 'That's not fun for me".

Johnson was hired along with Pelinka when Buss dismissed her brother, Jim, and GM Mitch Kupchak just 26 months ago.

"I can't tweet out like Russell Westbrook, that was a great feat the other day", Johnson said. They haven't made the playoffs since 2013.

However, there were some other issues which were frustrating Johnson.

Griffin's candidacy starts and ends with this: his familiarity and comfort in the pressure cooker environment of LeBron James.

This season didn't go as planned for the Lakers, though.

League rules prevent Johnson from publicly commenting on opposing players or pending free agents. It was a slight improvement from last season when the team finished the year on a 35-47 record. There's a gentleman across the hall who is a born Laker. I think that, um, she gave me full power to do what I wanted to do.
