Magic Johnson Left The LA Lakers Over Harsh E-Mails
While his departure nearly three weeks ago seemed pretty unexpected, new reports surface as to why Magic Johsnon suddenly left the LA Lakers — reportedly stemming from critical e-mails about him.
Additionally, NBA reporter Ric Bucher tells The Herd‘s Colin Cowherd that Jeanie Buss and GM Rob Pelinka exchanged a few emails criticizing the legendary baller on what he was and wasn’t doing.
So, Bucher says, “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. So, Magic now is seeing emails from Rob to Jeanie that were critical of what he was doing… so when he talked about the backstabbing, to me, my understanding that’s what started it.”
