Magic Johnson Resigns from Lakers After Accidentally Being Copied on Critical Emails

April 25, 2019Apr 25, 2019

Magic Johnson is one of the most famous basketball players of all time. He is a legend in the sport and has been around for decades.

Although he is no longer playing in the games, he is still active in the league. He has worked as a commentator and coach and has most recently been a part of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Sadly, Magic is parting ways. He is resigning from the organization after he was accidentally copied on an email that criticized his performance and leadership.

"Magic Johnson abruptly quit as the Los Angeles Lakers’ president of basketball operations earlier this month, and according to new reports, it was because management sent emails criticizing his bad performance — and Jonhson was copied on those emails," wrote Fox.

It's unclear what the exact email said. Time will tell if the message gets leaked to the media.

“My understanding is that there were some emails that were exchanged between Rob and Jeanie…about Magic and about what Magic was and wasn’t doing. They were critical emails. And somehow, someway, Jeanie, from what I understand, was CC’ing or blind CC’ing Magic on everything. That was sort of protocol. Standard issue. Somehow, the exchange between Rob and Jeanie ended up on that string of the blind CC’s that were going to Magic,” Fox Sports 1 analyst Ric Bucher reported concerning the story.

No word yet on Magic's future plans for being involved in the NBA. The news comes after the Lakers suffered some horrible performances.
