After matching Dan Gilbert's offer to LeBron and luring him out to LA, they wound up with a pitiful team.
And now Magic says he's done. Something's not right in LA.

Lifelong Lakers fan here - he is a massively talented athlete, a gentleman, and he has given back so much through his endless charity work.
Thank you for posting this, @Mz iMac I am old enough to remember the epic showdowns between the Celtics and the Lakers when Larry Bird and Magic went head-to-head.
Olympic gold medalist, one of the greatest NBA point guards of all time and a man who helped end the stigma surrounding AIDS by announcing he was HIV positive in 1991.
The Lakers had a terrible season this year, but Number 32 - we will always love you!

@Snowpuppy I'm 71 and spent my first 61 years in Southern California. Read an interesting story in the paper today and Magic quit because he knew he'd have to make a decision that would change someone's life (meaning manager Luke Walton).
It's no secret he doesn't like Luke Walton as the manager and push was coming to shove, and Magic was going to have to fire him.
He didn't want to do that, so he quit. I like Magic, he's extremely well thought of in Southern California and I wish him well.
