LeBron James indicated he was shocked and upset by Magic Johnson's surprise abrupt decision to quit as the president of basketball operations for the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers last month. On April 11, LeBron James filmed an episode of his HBO show "The Shop," which recently aired.
"It was just weird for [Johnson] to just be like. Why would you do that now?" said James of his disbelief. 'Nah, I'm out of here, ' And not even have [a heads-up] like: 'Hey, Bron. kiss my a-. I'm out of here.' I would have been okay with that. Like: 'Hey, Bron, it's Magic. "Kiss my a-; I'm gone.' It wasn't even that".
His former assistant coach, Kurt Rambis, has reportedly seen his power grow since Magic Johnson's departure while Rambis' wife, Linda, is effectively the consigliere to Jeanie Buss.

Indeed, the news confirmed what LeBron's friend informed him. "Like, from out of his vehicle?" "I'm like, 'Man, get the f*ck out my face, you're bullsh*tting.' I go check my phone, I look at it, this sh*t happened". In this picture, head coach Tyronn Lue (L) of the Cavaliers talks with James of the Lakers after a quarterfinal game of the 2018 NBA Summer League between the Lakers and the Detroit Pistons at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 15, 2018. "We were like, 'Damn, like right now?' It was literally 70 minutes on the clock before (the game)".
It was Johnson who played a key role in convincing James to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers past year to come to the Lakers with hopes of leading them back to glory days such as eras with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal or the "Showtime" era featuring Johnson. "Personally for me, I came here to be a part of the Lakers organization, having the conversation with Magic".
"We all knew that it was going to be kind of tough, But I was OK with the process". At Year 16, you ain't really supposed to be worrying about no damn process, especially for me because I'm in championship mode all the time ...
