Magic Johnson responds to ESPN's report with rambling statement on ESPN

Rob Pelinka Lakers Lakers GM told untrue story about Kobe, Heath Ledger in team meeting

In an appearance on SportsCenter on Tuesday, Johnson opened up about the recent ESPN report that claims he was abusive to Lakers employees.

However, the most damning parts were about how Magic Johnson ran things through fear and intimidation, which drove some employees to therapy and medication, while it drove others away. As well as Dan, the other lawyer. "That's not what I'm all about".

Magic Johnson's brief stint as President of Basketball Operations of the Los Angeles Lakers was marred with controversy, and if he does have one regret about his tenure, it's not hiring his own people. Landing any of these players would be considered a win this summer, but they would be a championship contender if they could land the guys near the top of the list.

"Did I have to fire some people?"

Johnson said he believed Lakers staff members didn't like his honesty and that he held them accountable. Yes", Johnson said. "Because we had to bring about change and get better. That's it. I can't worry about what somebody thinks, the perception. "What's got to happen now, is we got to get out of the news".

Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka once told his players that former Lakers star Kobe Bryant dined with Heath Ledger after the actor had died in 2008.

After lucking into the No. 4 pick at the NBA Draft Lottery earlier this month, there's a belief that the Lakers will be one of the frontrunners for Davis. I'll say this right now: The Lakers got a great staff.

Johnson called an impromptu meeting with media in April to step down from his front office position.

It was simultaneously unbelievable and, in a very big indictment of where the Lakers are right now, seemingly par for the course in what has been a season of unmitigated disasters in Los Angeles.
