David Griffin early betting favorite for Lakers president followed by ... Kobe?

David Griffin early betting favorite for Lakers president followed by ... Kobe?”

James, who met with Johnson on Saturday, also likely did not know what was coming. "Watching him my whole life, it was everything I thought it would be". Johnson said. "That's a decision Jeanie has to make". The team quickly released a statement on Tuesday night during LA's last home game against the Portland Trail Blazers, and shortly after that Buss sent out a tweet, quoting the press release and offering her own statement of support for Johnson and his work with the team.

"I'm told Kyrie Irving will grant the Lakers an interview this offseason, this summer", Smith said on his radio show. Jeanie Buss has a golden opportunity to scour the league to assemble the best front office possible.

Los Angeles, which is missing the National Basketball Association playoffs yet again despite the offseason addition of LeBron James, played well after Johnson's announcement, but still lost 104-101 to Portland.

Under Johnson's leadership, the Lakers got rid of young players D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle, both of whom put together career years with the Brooklyn Nets and New Orleans Pelicans this season, respectively. During the meeting, Johnson made no indication of his plans and never told James in private. "I had more fun on the other side".

Johnson is leaving the team with LeBron James, which is more than the team had when he was hired, but it has not really been successful for Magic. They opened with a 20-14 record, but James suffered a strained groin on December 25.

It appears that the Lakers have yet another sudden plot twist to pile onto this dramatic season.

Johnson made ambivalent comments about Pelinka that led some to wonder if their relationship played a role in the decision.

The Lakers will miss the playoffs for their sixth consecutive season, their longest postseason drought in franchise history.
